Sunday, March 18 - Next Monthly Youth Mass
Our monthly Youth Mass is open to teens, their friends and family, and anyone looking for an enlivened experience of the Eucharist. The liturgy will start at 5:00 pm -- then all junior high and high school teens are invited to stay afterwards for a light supper and specially planned activities. Want to help out with music or as a liturgical minister at Mass? We need volunteers to serve as altar servers, lectors, and Eucharistic ministers. Contact Fr. Steve at firstname.lastname@example.org or 708-435-8922!
Saturday, March 3 - Youth Service Day
We'll be heading back to Our Lady of the Angels to help with their food bank and clothing distribution on Chicago's West Side. Junior high and high school students are invited to sign up now for this outing, which is perfect for those still needing to fill Confirmation or school service hours. Parents and young adults are welcome, too, but everyone must sign up in advance so we can coordinate carpooling/chaperones! Click here for an information sheet. To sign up or ask questions, send an email to Fr. Steve today!
