The youth get together for a week to worship, play, and sing. Their days consist of a theme- related morning program with discussion groups, daily services, swimming, boating, and sports. Evenings are full of activities like a dance, talent show, and campfire.

Easter Day

Children from the Cultural Arts Program took part in the Easter Day Services.   There were special performances by the Dance Class and the Youth Choir.  Also at the Coffee Hour we enjoyed the cakes and cup cakes that they baked during the Saturday program.  And, of course, there was an Easter Egg Hunt following the Service.

Remembering the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The CWW parishes are three of the twenty-four Bronx Episcopal parishes represented in the Bronx Council (Officers of our three Bronx Interparish Councils)  and are members of the South Bronx IPC.  The Annual Bronx-wide Martin Luther King Day Celebration was hosted by the South Bronx IPC and held at St. David’s on January 21.  In spite of the very cold weather, the multicultural service was well attended.   The Celebrant was the Rt. Rev. Andrew ML Dietsche, Bishop of New York, and the Rev. Hilario Albert, Priest-in-Charge (ret.), St. Peter’s Church, Port Chester, preached.  The Rt. Rev. Allen K. Shin, Bishop Suffragan and the Rt. Rev. Mary D. Glasspool, Assistant Bishop, also participated.  The day’s Offering was designated for the Bronx Council’s MLK Memorial Scholarship Fund.

In honor of Fr. Bennett’s 40th Anniversary of Ordination to the Priesthood, Anthony R. Jordan, District Director, Congressman José E.

Bennett at a Luncheon on the occasion of his Fortieth Anniversary of Ordination to the Priesthood.  The event, held at the Eastwood Manor, was attended by friends and family from the Diocese and beyond.  Tributes and proclamations came from many,  including the Bronx Borough President, Council Member Vanessa Gibson and Assembly Member Michael Blake.
