Just a friendly reminder we do not have open gym tonight because it is Easter Monday.  Open youth room will be on Thursdays from 3:30-5:30pm starting this week because of my new schedule and will continue on through the remaining school year.

This weekend April 22/23 we have our high school mission trip bake sale after all masses in the Parish Hall.  It would be beneficial to you if you could be around to help sell our baked goods.  This bake sale will be a free will donation.  We still need baked goods donated so if you could have your parents/grandparents help us out that would be great.  This Saturday (April 22) I will be in either the Parish Hall kitchen or cafeteria, baking goods with John Martin for our bake sale from 1-4:30pm.  If you are available to help, please meet me in my office at 1:00pm

High School Mission Trip packets are still available if you have not picked one up already.  Please make sure you read everything carefully.  If money is an issue, please come to me and we can set you up with a sponsor.  Have your forms ready to be turned in on your given due dates.
