June 24: Schlitterbahn Trip for High School Students — new date!! If interested in attending, the cost is $25 per person. Permission forms are required. If already turned in to the office they’re still good — no need to redo these forms. Contact me if you have not received one. We will start the day with the Mass intention for a safe trip at 5:30 am prior to leaving at 6:00 am on the charter bus. Don’t’ forget to bring your sunscreen, towel, personal snacks and clothes to wear in the restaurant afterwards.

June 26: VBS Hot Dog Meal — need kids from 10:00am-1:00 pm. No one has approached me with any indication that they can help with this event. I need to have both Jr. High and High School students assist with the setting up, cooking, serving, and clean–up after the hot dog lunch for the VBS participants and their parents. Let me hear from you guys!

July 19 (Sunday) at 6:00 pm: LET’S PLAY BALL!!!! Youth against adults. Yes, parents, that means YOU! This is a fundraiser for the youth groups. We will have a $2 admittance charge and will have a concession stand with hot dogs/hamburgers — cost will be $5. I need parents who would like to coach, umpire, cook, or play. Please volunteer to help me with this. Release forms will be in the back of Church. All proceeds will benefit the Youth Group to fund activities.

July 25: Walking for Vocations in Ballinger. If anyone is interested, it begins at the large cross on US Hwy 83 at 8 am and will conclude 3 miles later at St. Mary’s in Ballinger. There will be a light lunch at the hall at 10:30. RSVP by July 15.

July 31-Aug. 2: Men’s Retreat for 10th grade and above at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Odessa — “Discerning the Priesthood.” Seminarians and priests will lead discussions . . . More information will follow . . . If interested, please let Fr. Joe or myself know.
