" You get more out of going to Mass when you're involved as a server or something."
 
 This is what a group of  teens involved in the
altar server, lector, and music ministries
were saying when we got together recently.  
 
    If you have ever thought about joining one of these ministries, please contact me and I can point you in the right direction.
 
And thank you to all of you who currently serve as servers, lectors, cantors, instrumentalists, and ushers.  
 
  
 
 
 

Congratulations graduating 8th graders and parents, 

 

We have been celebrating a lot of "last times" in recent weeks, and have a bunch more coming.  I would like to welcome you to where you are going from here.  There are many awesome opportunities available for you at our parish as you move into high school. These can help you keep in contact with the people you have grown up with and help you make new relationships to carry you through high school (and beyond).  These can also help you grow in understanding your purpose and help make your faith your own. 

 

All you need to do is take advantage of them.  Please do! You will be happy you did!

 

Start by joining us on Sunday, May 24th from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Solon Park (big pavilion). Hope to see you there. 


God bless you!
