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

First Puppet Meeting of the Year: Wednesday, Sept.9, 2020 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Meet in the school lobby by the statue of the Blessed Mother. Pickup will be in the Family Center. Marilyn’s GREAT food will be served!  Bring what you know of your fall schedule! This is the day we pick what day we will practice, based on everyone’s schedule (some of you will not be able to participate because of the day that is picked), we choose our scripts and decide who wants to be a puppeteer, do props, or both! And one person is the sound master! We practice from September thru half of December, then God willing this year will take our show on the road from January thru early March, ending with a party! SERVICE HOURS!  RSVP to Marilyn Trumper-Samra, Coordinator of Youth Ministry, at 248 536-1235 so she knows who to look for and how to best plan.
