Many Hands make Light Work

or How can I Help with the Weekend?

Set-Up: begins on Thursday, at 1:00 p.m. with cabin cleaning, Rollo room set-up, unpacking the trailer, etc. As many hands as show up can be put to good use! (If you’re there at 5:00, you can grab a bite to eat, too!)

Sponsor’s Service: begins after the Rector/Rectora dismisses the Community from the opening social to begin the weekend. It is a time of worship and prayer to dedicate the weekend to the Lord, praying for each Pilgrim by name and blessing the crosses. Sponsors are asked to attend the service, or make arrangements for someone to attend in their place.

Serenading the weekend: Practice begins at 5:30. Please stay in the area that has been designated. After the serenade, timely departure (without mingling with the team or Pilgrims) is appreciated.

Tear-down: is probably the most appreciated palanca to the team, who are tired and ready to go home. If you choose this most welcome-service, plan to arrive around 3 p.m. on Sunday. The Chas will direct you to areas where cleaning and putting the camp back in order can be started.

The Clausura (closing): is the first opportunity the Community has to give the Pilgrims a hearty welcome. Show your love and 4th Day support for those Pilgrims you’ve been praying for and meet them face to face! Be patient if the weekend is not running quite on schedule; the Clausura should start between 4:00 and 4:15.

Thing Palanca

(Love Gifts)If you want to provide love gifts (we used to call them "thing palanca") for a weekend, you will need to send 60 pieces. You remember them from your weekend – bracelets, key chains, pins, mints, necklaces, pencils, bookmarks and such! Love gifts just for pilgrims would be a maximum of 26 (allowing for a spare piece or two). Please support the pilgrims with these small tokens of God’s love for them and while you are making them don’t forget the most important form of Palanca – PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!
