NOTE: All World Youth Day Bottle $ Can Collections were scheduled into the calendar, because it’s easier to take them out – than to put them in after the fact. As of this printing, the Portuguese Bishops have not given us dates for the 2022 World Youth Day. When they do, we’ll make our pitch for signup with costs, itinerary, etc. If you want to get on a non-obligatory reminder list about that meeting, call 248 536-1235.

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!
