OUR SIGN UP HAS CLOSED. WE UNFORTUNATELY CANNOT ACCOMODATE ANY ADDITIONAL PARTICIPANTS. THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!
We invite high school rising freshmen to graduated seniors to join us for our Summer Mission Day 2022.
YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 13 YEARS OF AGE TO PARTICIPATE!
Serving as the Catholic Service Corps, we will come together from different parishes to
PRAY, SERVE & LOVE!
We will gather at St. Matthew Church, located at 216 Scribner Avenue in Norwalk at 10am. Our day will begin with ice breakers and Mass. We will have lunch together and then will take a bus to Filling in the Blanks where we will be packing food bags. After a snack break, we will hop back on the bus to Malta House, where we will set up a mini carnival with games, crafts and a BBQ and engage with the single mothers of Malta, the alumni Partnering Success moms and their children. We will end our day with reflection and an evening prayer service and the bus will take us back to St. Matthews for pick up by parents at 8pm.
There is a fee of $25 per student to help to cover the costs of the day. We also need some donations, if you are able to help. You may sign up for them on the sign up genius. If you need assistance with the fee, please reach out to your parish youth minister/coordinator. Participating parishes will be collecting fees - please see your youth minister/coordinator for instructions.
We will do our best to accomodate your t-shirt size -- we had to place our order in advance due to longer shipping delivery times.
All attendees must fill out the diocesean liability form, which can be done online or hard copy. We ask that parish youth ministers/coordinators collect all of the liabilty forms.
