Youth Group Lock-in
13 youth and three adult leaders and Fr. Scott gathered for a lock-in at St. Mary's on Saturday January 9th. Fr. Scott led some conversation and activities to help participants look at their faith and who they are as a unique child of God. Each person present shared how they want to be more like Jesus in the new year. There was great scavenger hunt that took youth inside, outside and in all the parish buildings. There was delicious food and a lot of laughter and friendship. The next morning, lock-in participants covered all the ministries during the 8:00 am service and Fr. Scott used some of their reflections during his sermon. "We are blessed with some really exceptional young people in this parish- and there is much we can learn from them", he said.
St Mary's Family Sunday School
Family Sunday School started on October 4. A one hour class for kids and their parents. Kids then take some of the prominent roles during the 10:00 mass. First lesson was on the Lord's Prayer. Parents like this format and are able to learn along with their children (and perhaps teach them a bit, too). This is good family time on a Sunday morning. The first Sunday of every month is Family Sunday School. Teachers are parish member Sarah Beneker and Fr. Scott
