A Message from the Camp Galena Staff:
In an effort to ensure long term success and effectiveness, we have decided to focus on Summer Blast camp this summer, and not offer Camp Galena in 2019. We are taking this year to evaluate our staffing and program needs.
Please consider taking advantage of this gap year to explore opportunities hosted by centers of Opus Dei all over the country!

Pray Like A Teenager
Montse Grases was born in Barcelona, Spain on July 10, 1941 into a deeply Catholic family.
At 16 years old, she sensed that God was calling her to follow the path of sanctification in ordinary life in Opus Dei; so after seeing appropriate counsel, she asked for admission to the Work. Soon after, she was diagnosed with bone cancer in her leg. She died on Holy Thursday, March 26, 1959 and in 1962, the Cause for her canonization was opened in Barcelona. On April 26, 2016, Pope Francis declared that Montse had practiced the virtues heroically, thus earning her the title "Venerable". By declaring Montse to be "Venerable", the Church is saying that she can be offered as an example for the devotion and imitation of the Catholic faithful and we are encouraged to have recourse to Montse Grases' intercession to obtain favors from Heaven.
