IMPORTANT INFO: We are not a group where you have to sign up and officially join – you can come at any time, or every time - we just ask that you  honor the honor any RSVP and paperwork deadlines - and remember that you are always welcome to bring a friend and they don’t have to be Catholic!  You may find it easier to fill out and hand-in paperwork if the FIRST time you do it, you copy the Media Form and Medical Form, and submit copies for future events rather than filling out all those forms again. J

 

 

Friday, Dec. 6, – Movie Night in the Youth Room!   “Miracle on 34th Street!” – What a classic! Popcorn! Gatorade! Candy!

Sunday, Dec. 8, Gift Sorting in the Church for the Giving Tree, after the 5:30 p.m. Mass. For service hours from MTS, you must register with Marilyn, so that she knows you are coming. You may write tags, and not sort gifts, or sort gifts and not write tags. Call 248 536-1235. High School teens need to have taken Called to Serve. The  event is over in about 1.5 hours.

Friday, Dec. 20 – High School and junior high come right after school at 3:40 p.m., meet at the statue of the Blessed Mother in the school lobby, and we will make our way to the Y&YA Room to hang out, do homework, eat dinner, change into jeans and Sorrows’ Spirit wear, until we gear up to leave in adult –driven vans, arriving by 5:45 p.m. at Detroit Metropolitan Airport to sing Christmas Carols to folks waiting to depart! We sing from 6-8 p.m., and return to Sorrows by 8:30 p.m. Wear Sorrows’ Spirit Wear and jeans or a solid white shirt—and blue jeans! We’ll hand out Goodie Grabs to passersby! You don’t have to sing well—or even think you have a good voice! God made you who you are and God is pleased with the voice he gave you! We just sing together and have fun! But you must come prepared to sing! You should have a general understanding of how our Catholic Christmas Carols go and sound. You will be given the words and songs in a small “book.” RSVP with your PS/MF/MF by Dec. 13 so I can line up drivers and so the airport can vet you and credential you!  Service Hours for all!  ENCOUNTER   GROW   WITNESS

Dinner work times are generally sometime between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. and will be known specifically by Saturday, when camp staff arrives. Service Hours for those who need them. Call MTS at 248 536-1235 to sign up or get answers to your questions. High School teens must have taken Called to Serve. All volunteers entering the 8th-grade THIS fall, through college, are welcome!
