Mid May Update

Hello All!

The end of the school year is quickly approaching and you may be wondering what am I going to do this summer?  Well, your Life Teen group may be able to help you fill your calendar….

Here are some summer activities that will be happening and would love to see you at a few of them!!!

  • National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC): Commitment form and deposit due by May 30, 2019. If you are interested in NCYC and did not attend the info meeting, please email or call me!   NCYC Info packet is available on the LT bulletin board located in the LT room.  NCYC is a GREAT opportunity to pray and worship with 20,000 teens!  Don’t let the price scare you…we have ways to help you attend NCYC!!!
  • Mystery Mission Destination Event: During the summer, we will serve the metro Atlanta community for 4 specific days instead of 4 days for one week.  This change will help more teens and adults participate in Mission.  Mystery Mission Destination dates are: (8am-3:30pm each day)
    • Tuesday, June 18, Wednesday, June 19, Tuesday, July 23, Wednesday, July 24* (at the end of this day, we will celebrate with an end of Mission fun event)

Now you are probably thinking…what is the MYSTERY?  Each day that a teen arrives at Mission, the teen will randomly draw for their service destination.  For example, you arrive on 6/18 and you draw helping at a Senior Center, the next time you participate, you may serve at St. Oliver’s or at the Horse Therapy Camp.  Permission slip for Mystery Mission Destination is attached or you can find one on the How Can I Serve board located in the LT room.  The cost of the Mission is $25—that is for volunteering for just one day or all 4.  This fee will pay for your Mission tshirt, mission supplies and our social event following our 7/24 Mission day.  PERMISSION SLIP AND PAYMENT ARE DUE BY JUNE 2, 2019.

  •  Southern Plantation Senior Center Alzheimer’s Charity Car Wash: I have been contacted by Southern Plantation Senior Center about providing teens to help with a charity car wash on SATURDAY, JUNE 22nd.  The Senior Center is looking for help from 10-2.  The Senior Center will provide the supplies, you provide the car washing.  If you are interested, please email me by 6/2/19 and/or sign up on the How Can I Serve board located in the Life Teen room.  I will then send you a permission slip, or you can pick one up from the How Can I Serve board in the LT room. 
  • Eucharistic Congress: The Archdiocese of Atlanta hosts this annual conference on Saturday, June 22nd at the Georgia International Convention Center.   This year there will be a TEEN TRACK at the conference featuring Father Mike Schmitz.  St. Oliver’s is offering FREE bus transportation for this FREE event!  The event time (this is tentative) is 9:30am-5:30pm.  If you are interested in attending the Eucharistic Congress, please email me by 5/15.  LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE!!!!  Here is a link to check out info on the conference: https://congress.archatl.com/
  • St. Oliver Vacation Bible School: July 15-19, 2019.  We are looking for some awesome volunteers to help with VBS this summer.  Please sign up and pick up the required info packet on the How Can I Serve Board located in the Life Teen room.  There is paperwork that needs to be completed in order for you to volunteer!
  • Life Teen Registration: Life Teen is accepting registrations for the upcoming school year. Registration packet (for Life Teen and Confirmation) is available on the Life Teen board located NEXT to the Life Teen Office.  Early bird price till June 30, 2019.  If you completed Year 1 Confirmation, you need to register for Year 2!!!
  • Miscellaneous Items:
    • I will be out of the office beginning May 20, 2019 for surgery.  I will be checking emails (youthministry@stolivers.com) and am accessible via my cellphone at 770-605-7215.
    • Sandy will be in and out of the office throughout the summer.  If you need to get in touch with her, please email as I will be in contact with her in the summer.
    • Life Teen returns on Wednesday, July 31st with our annual Senior Send Off.  Please join us as we say goodbye to our Seniors from 6:30pm-8pm in the Life Teen Room.
