What is Prayer and Action?

Prayer and Action is a mission experience in the Diocese of Savannah that reaches out to various communities in the Savannah area, providing for those most in need. This is done by the laboring hands and the open hearts of high school students and their adult leaders. It is an overnight camp that runs from Sunday to Friday.
