Starting Thursday, January 10th, from 7:00 to 9:00, we will be offering an additional monthly youth night just for eighth-graders! These eighth-grade youth nights, which will normally be scheduled for the third Thursday of every month, will follow the format of our high school DTS nights (also known as Life to the Full; see Mission page for more info). Eddie Cotter, Director of DTS, will take the lead in planning, but both he and I will be there to run things. Adoration, with confession available, will always be offered. Eighth-graders are still encouraged to attend the regular junior-high youth night on the first Thursday of every month, but they will now have this additional opportunity to get to know each other better and strengthen their friendships as they prepare to enter high school.
As always, feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
We are working on finding a new date for our day-trip pilgrimage to the Basilica of Our Lady of Consolation in Carey, Ohio. It will probably be sometime in February. Stay tuned for details and registration!
