December 2014 Rel. Ed. Newsletter

I hope everyone had or will have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.  I am headed to a Youth Minister's conference in Texas the first part of December.  I ask for your prayers for safe travels and also for a great learning experience.  I hope to bring new ideas to share.

NCYC bierock fund raising went very well.  We should bring in around $3500.00.  Thank you to all who supported this effort.  We are taking around 40 people to NCYC next year and this helps alot.  The cost per person is around $600 for the trip.   Please watch for other opportunities to support our youth.   Reminder to NCYC participants that your first $50 installment is due the 1st of December. 

Also there is TEC weekend offered Dec. 27 to 39th in Garden City for all Juniors and Seniors.  If you want to attend or if you want to help on the TEC team, if you have been to one before, let me know or go to the dcdiocese.org/youth site to sign up. 

First Reconciliation Practice for all students enrolled in First Reconciliation  will be from 7-8pm in the Church on Wed. Dec. 10th.  First Reconciliation will be at 1pm on Saturday Dec. 13th in the church.  We will have simple reception afterwards in the school cafeteria.  Please keep these students in your prayers as we get closer to this Sacrament. 

We will not have PSR during the Holidays, Dec. 24th and Dec. 31st.  I pray that you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
