St. Luke's, Darien CT commits $60,000 to initiate construction of Camp Blankingship Phase I
After visiting the site in 2016 with Father Gerardo Logides, St. Luke's, Darien CT held a fund-raiser to initiate construction of Camp Blankingship, Phase I. St. Luke's is now thrilled to announce that it has raised $60,000 for the project. Phase I includes the construction of the Worship Center(which will be a multi-purpose space), 2 dormitories, an outdoor kitchen, and related infrastructure. Total funds needed for this phase are estimated at $500,000 - so we still need more churches and individuals across the country to help. Phase I will enable Blankingship to be operational for 36 people, and importantly, will begin to finally realize the vision of Bishop Blankingship, who purchased the property for this purpose in 1957.
