Summer Update

Good Afternoon LT families!

As I prepare for my upcoming knee surgery, I want to remind you all of some upcoming Life Teen summer activities.  Please check your email every now and then as we are hoping to plan a few social activities during the summer too!  Email is the best way for us to get info to you!!

Life Nights:

Life Nights resume on Sunday, August 11th.  Registration packet for 2019-2020 is available on the LT Info Bulletin Board located next to the LT office.

Life Teen Events:

  • 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 date that you participate, you may serve at St. Oliver’s or at the Horse Therapy Camp.  Permission slip for Mission is available at (click on the forms tab) 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.
  • 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!!!

Parish Events:

  • Respect Life Ministry:  Members of the St. Oliver Plunkett Respect Life Ministry invite our Life Teen families to join them in prayer at the Planned Parenthood facility (798 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road in Lawrenceville every Saturday.  The Ministry is in front of the facility from 8:30am to 4:30pm.  The Ministry prays the rosary and hold signs with information to help the women going inside for an abortion.

 Miscellaneous Items:

  • I will be out of the office beginning May 20, 2019 for surgery.  I will be checking emails ( and am accessible via my cellphone at 770-605-7215.
  • With summer quickly approaching, lots of our LT families will be out of town on various weeks.  With folks going out of town, this causes chaos with scheduling all the roles at the Life Teen Mass.  If you are attending the Life Teen Mass, please stop by and check in with Katie or me to see if we need help at that Mass.  Remember to dress appropriately for serving and we appreciate the help!
  • 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.
  • RE Round Up is after all Masses the weekend of August 3rd-4th.  Please make sure you stop by the Family Center to pick up the latest info and calendar.
  • Our Fall Retreat is scheduled for October 4-6, 2019 at Covecrest!
  • Check out this link for the Archdiocese of Atlanta “The Mark” magazine for Catholic youth:  3 of our teens, Emily Koschella, Madeleine Tran and Lucy Tolmich have articles in the magazine!!!
