Salvation Army opens day camp
The Salvation Army will open a monthlong summer day camp June 25 at its Leeward Corps site at 96-612 Moanalua Loop, Pearl City.
The vacation Bible program for children from kindergarten though sixth grade will provide sports, music, crafts, meals and field trips in a context of Christian teaching. Youngsters from 8 to 12 years old will spend a week at Camp Homelani on the North Shore.

The "Fun in the Son 2007" camp is a precursor of programs to come when the planned Ray and Joan Kroc Community Center is completed in 2010, said Bram Begonia, assistant project director.

Catholic march revives tradition
Catholics will march in a downtown procession tomorrow, reviving the traditional celebration of the Corpus Christi liturgical holiday.
Marchers will leave the Co-Cathedral of St. Theresa, 712 N. School St., at 11:30 a.m. and end the mile-long walk at Our Lady of Peace Cathedral on Fort Street Mall. The procession will follow School Street to Nuuanu Avenue, on Nuuanu to Beretania Street then on Beretania to Fort Street Mall.
Catholic Bishop Larry Silva will carry the Holy Eucharist in a monstrance, an ornate receptacle that displays the consecrated bread that is honored as the "body of Christ" on this liturgical holiday.
The tradition of a Corpus Christi procession has been observed for centuries in European and South American countries. Processions were held in Honolulu until the late 1980s.
