St. Mary’s Youth celebrated the arrival of CARITAS with a reading and a song this past Sunday. Later that evening they helped prepare and enjoy a Super Bowl dinner party.
Please watch the video below for a sample of their hospitality and enthusiasm as we welcome our guests for this week.
2014 Summer Mission Trips
Registration & Deposit Deadline for High School Youth
Sunday, January 19
Information regarding the summer 2014 mission trips is FINALLY available!!! This summer, two mission trips will be offered, one for high school and one for middle school youth.
The high school mission trip will be through Tri-Cities Workcamps, July 20-26. Two important items can be accessed through the St. Mary’s youth webpage: an informational flyer from Tri-Cities Workcamps and a Youth Mission Covenant document outlining some expectations for youth who participate in this year’s mission trips.
Please note that in order to secure your spot, a non-refundable registration fee of $50 must be mailed to St. Mary’s by Sunday, January 19, along with a signed copy of the Youth Mission Covenant. We have made arrangements to secure 13 youth spots (with 3 adult chaperones), so please register as quickly as possible since these spots will held on a first-come-first-served basis as registration deposits (along with signed covenants) are received.
A local, homegrown mission trip for middle school students is currently being developed in cooperation with Goochland Family Services. More information, including a registration deadline will be available soon, and we are anticipating this trip to be held mid- to late-June.
Please join your friends for fun, fellowship, and good food. We will meet in the youth building. Middle School will meet with Ashton Guza. Sara Grattan will lead High School.
We will have fun fellowship activities, evening worhsip, and good pasta casserole.
The times are 5-6:30 pm.
All volunteers for Rhythms of Grace will meet at 12:30 pm in the 8th grade classroom in the Education Building. Catherine Hughes, a special education teacher in Hanover County Schools, will provide training on working with children and youth with special needs. Pizza will be available.
