Ministry activities for November
Dear Youth in Christ,
As one season turns into another we reflect upon the blessings both past and present. It is a time to be grateful for all that God has given us. Our response is important; therefore you are invited to join us during this special time as our youth group gathers to focus on being thankful through prayer, work, learning, socials, and service.

On Friday Nov. 4th we will be attending Adoration at St. Mary’s Church at 10 p.m. This is a wonderful opportunity to quiet your busy lives and sit in the presence of our Lord.
