World Youth Day Fundraiser: By shopping Schwan’s Foods, you can support
our fundraising efforts for World Youth Day 2016. Go online or place your order
by phone and during the time period of Feb 1, 2015 and Mar 17, 2015, 20% of sales
will be donated back to our parish for World Youth Day. We also receive 40% back
on all eCertificates purchased. For the remainder of the year we will receive 5%
back on all sales. Use the link and the ID numbers above. To participate you must
order online or by phone. Your order will still be delivered to your doorstep. For
more information, contact Stacy Preszler at 751-4922. Thanks for your support!
We still have vouchers available for Let’er Buck Car Wash.
They are sold in sets of 2 for $24. It’s the usual price, but if
you buy them from the Parish Center, half goes into our World
Youth Day fund. So you get two car washes and are also
supporting our youth! To buy vouchers, contact Stacy
Preszler at 751-4922 or buy them at our next fundraiser.
Thank you to all youth who helped at the Soup Kitchen.
It’s great to see our families getting involved! We had kids
of all ages help. The next week to host Lunch Together
is Mar. 23-27. It coincides with Spring Break for Dist. #2.
Please consider being involved in this worthy cause as a family.

YDisciple: Youth Ministry
For our teens in grades 8-12 we have begun YDisciple.
The “Y” stands for youth in this process in which we're
teaching our youth to be Disciples of Jesus Christ. As
recommended by the Augustine Institute, we
began with a very small core group. It’s going very well
and our groups are growing as teens currently participating
continue to invite friends to join their small groups. Just as
Jesus did it, we mentor a small group of people who then
go out to share their faith and spread the Gospel. The small
groups work best if member size stays between 6-8 teens.
Each group is led by two faith-filled adults from our parish.
We invite all teens to participate. We are also looking for
adults who feel they would like the role of an adult leader
for one of the small groups. Groups meet once a week
at a time that works. For more information: ydisciple.org.
Come learn how YDisciple can change lives!
To participate, contact Stacy Preszler at 751-4922.
This trip is scheduled for July 18-Aug 3 2016 and will include experiences in
Lithuania, Auschwitz, Krakow and other areas of interest. The cost is $4595
per person and we currently have 2 students signed up to go.
