Activities for November
Thanksgiving brings with it the thoughts of family, friends and community as we come together to appreciate all we have and all that we stand for, not alone but together. It is in the midst of this thankfulness, that we invite the youth of our local parishes to join us, our family in the November Tri-parish activities and celebrations.
On Nov. 1st the Jr. High and High School youth are invited to help with roadside clean-up just outside of Cottonwood. Everyone who is attending must have a signed permission slip the day of the clean up. You may pick them up from the parish office prior to Nov. 1st.
