Dear Parents and Youth,

This newsletter has detailed information about upcoming events outside of the regular faith formation classes.  Some of these events are required, but most are optional.  However, we would love to see more youth at these events.

We have a lot going on this fall.  Make sure to take advantage of these wonderful opportunities to grow in faith and friendship.  See you soon!

Registrations and Costs

In the past, funds have been available for students to get free or discounted events. We are now at the point of needing to raise funds. The prices listed are “Parish Prices.” They do not necessarily reflect the actual cost of the event. Except in the case of the required events, if students do not participate in the fundraisers we have, they will be asked to pay full price.

Financial assistance is always available. Students should never miss an event because of the cost. Please talk to us if money is an issue.
