ENVELOPE DONATION BOARD Teen WorkCampers, sign up on our website to man the donation board over the next few weeks after Masses. This is our largest WorkCamp fundraiser, and EVERY camper is expected to participate! Parishioners are encouraged to support our WorkCamp mission by taking an envelope from the large board in the narthex and returning it with a donation of their choosing. 100% of the money collected goes towards lodging, meals, van rentals, tools, and building materials.


All high school teens are invited to retreat to the mountains at the NOVA 4-H Center in Front Royal, VA April 5-7th.  Jesus invites us to “Remain in Me”.  We’ll play, talk, pray, sing, worship, eat, laugh, and learn how we can be still, be nourished, and be fruitful disciples of Christ. Check out the FLYER and return PERMISSION FORM and payment ($110) to the Youth or Parish Office by March 25th.
