The director of our annual One Act Play is looking to fill a principal role in the comedy Shakespeare By Monkeys! If you would like to audition for Professor Piltdown, who is described as a desperate benefactor, please email Mary Beth Balint (email@example.com); and please copy at least one parent and Paul (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All current high schoolers (grades 9-12) are welcomed!
Calling all middle school families: BASH “family style” is coming up soon, an event with very similar, awesome, quality speakers, dinner, inflatables, scavenger hunt to the annual BASH…including Mass with Bishop Burbidge! AND you can bring your whole family, even the non-middle schoolers, on Saturday, April 24!
The Holy Trinity Youth Ministries (HTYM) alms boards have been up in the Narthex, and we are humbling requesting your support, at least in prayer. We would also like to know how we can pray for you, too, and you can include those prayer intentions if would like to return an envelope.
So please consider supporting all HTYM with prayers and possibly more by taking an envelope, including a prayer card of a young saint. Thank you!
Our monthly St. Joseph’s Workers organizational meeting will be held this Sunday, March 14. Please come to pray together, hear about our next service project coming up next week, brainstorm a bit for the next project after that, and to get priority access to the sign-up for our next service day!
This is getting a bit beyond beyond, we know! But for all high schoolers, auditions for the annual One Act Play have beenrescheduled again, to be held on Sunday, February 21, from 2pm until 4pm in Our Lady’s Hall.
For all in high school, and current 8th graders preparing for Confirmation in the coming months… while tickets remain! Please join us for this awesome event — modeled after the usual “Life is VERY Good” event — to prayerfully prepare for the March for Life with music, inspirational talks, and Eucharistic Adoration…with an opportunity for Confession, too!
Our Holy Trinity Youth Ministries (HTYM) high schoolers are taking the first steps to create another student-created, student-run youth ministry, one that will focus on serving others here at home throughout the year – St. Joseph’s Workers! The initial vision for the ministry will have planning meetings once a month, in advance of a service day or evening later that week.
High schoolers, you’re all very welcomed to join us! Adults, we need you, too… and while handy people will have a special role in this ministry, those less handy, perhaps well-organized, and certainly adults with a heart for service are very welcomed to check this out and help us form the new ministry.
We just wanted to quickly get the word out a bit wider about a couple of big upcoming events.
Also, Mondays have three monthly ministries for high schoolers, each meet once a month. This week is St. Gianna’s Life Defenders’ monthly meeting (they meet 2nd Mondays); this is our parish’s pro-life high school ministry. Also, St. Thomas’s Youth Apologists apologetics ministry meets on 4th Mondays (next on November 23), and Gamemasters board-gaming ministry meets on 1st Mondays (next on December 7). Currently, all of our meetings are being held on the pond side of the building, near the basement doors.
If you are in grades 6, 7, or 8 … or you know someone that is, please consider joining us on October 24 at Prince William Forest Park for a middle school hike! You’ll need to sign-up to save a spot, and all of the event details (packing list, times, etc.) can be found on the sign-up, here:
Friends are welcomed, but we need to be sure we have enough adults to take everyone…compliant parents and volunteers, please consider joining us! The sign-up link above has more details on this, too. And please email Paul with any questions: email@example.com.
Just a reminder that there are a few youth ministries’ options this week. All high schoolers are welcomed at Ignite, St. Thomas’s, Girls Small Groups, and Guys Small Groups, any week, so please feel free to invite and bring a friend! The same goes for all middle schoolers being welcomed at Spark, so please feel free to invite and bring a friend anytime!
We are also in need of volunteer adult leaders, those willing to help lead by their presence and sharing their love for Jesus with our parish’s awesome high school and middle school teens… please email Paul to learn more!
Also, if you’d like to be added to either the high school (grades 9-12) or middle school (grades 6-8) email lists, to hear about these ministries and more throughout the year, as well as upcoming events, please email Paul: firstname.lastname@example.org.
