Our parish Faith Formation Youth Ministry will be cooking and eating together a Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings in the Parish Center this Sunday. We are especially grateful to Paul and Maria Gust for being the main chefs at this teaching moment. We are also very grateful to our Coordinator Youth Minister Carolyn Prefontaine and to Lucy Stanton for leading our new programs, and to many volunteers who drop off hot meals to feed our teens weekly, help as gym monitors and small activities and catechesis group coordinators.
Congratulations to Anna Puchalski, one of our parish teens who last Friday received a special Youth Ministry Award from Bishop Malone. Anna has been a long time faithful altar server and recently joined our new parish Youth Ministry programs as a teen helper.
Please welcome Father John Cooney who will speak to us at all Masses this weekend inviting us to support a special collection for the “Food For the Poor.” There will be a second basket collection specifically for this cause. It is not a parish or a diocesan collection. Thank you for your generosity.
