End of School Year/Summer Update

Hello Life Teen families!

Welcome to our RISING 9th graders…yes, you guys can participate in these events too!!!!

I have a few reminders/updates for your calendar:

Three awesome service activities:

  • Starve Wars—June 1, 2018.
    • In conjunction with the Eucharistic Congress, the Archdiocese of Atlanta is looking for volunteers to help package 100,000 meals for Helping Hands to deliver to Burkina Faso.  Life Teen will be participating…will you?  Our plans are to meet here on Friday, June 1 for 9am Mass, then our drivers will bring us to the Georgia International Convention Center where we will help from 11am-12:30pm.  We will stop for a quick lunch and then head back to St. Oliver’s.  PERMISSION SLIP IS DUE ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 23. 2018.  You can also find the permission slip on our website:  www.stoliverslifeteen.com.
  • Mission:Possible—June 24-28, 2018.  Our annual give back to our parish and metro Atlanta community.
    • We sleep at St. Oliver’s in the evening and during the day you are in a team doing one of several service activities…from working with autistic children, helping Senior citizens, serving food to the hungry, helping at our parish (this is just a few of the activities,a and a new activity each day!).  After working all day, we clean up/shower, have a delicious dinner and then have some fun social activities.  If you are brave enough to accept this mission, then stop by the Life Teen room to sign up and get a permission slip or go to the website:  www.stoliverslifeteen.com and click on the forms tab for a permission slip.  PERMISSION SLIP AND $65 DUE ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 30, 2018.  I need to finalize lots of details to make sure Mission runs smoothly…so please turn in your form by 5/30/18!!!
  • St. Oliver’s Vacation Bible School—July 16-20, 2018.
    • To make VBS successful, it takes many volunteers!  If you are interested in volunteering, please pick up a VBS volunteer form from the LT service board located in the Life Teen room or contact Aimee Tolmich at roots@stolivers.com.  Please make sure you turn in the form or contact Aimee by the end of the May.

Senior Sendoff:  Wednesday, July 25th 7pm-8:30pm in the Life Teen room.  Join us as we say farewell to the Class of 2018!

Life Night returns on Sunday, July 29th 6pm-8:30pm at the rectory!  Join us for a BBQ and games!

Registration for the 2018-2019 school year is underway.  You can pick up a registration packet on the Life Teen board located outside of the Life Teen office.  The registration fee will increase after June 30th, so register now!!!

You can stay in touch with Life Teen throughout the summer on Facebook at St. Oliver’s Life Teen and on Instagram/Twitter @solifeteen.

Hope to see many of you participating in our service activities this summer!

In Christ’s service,
