EDGE/Youth Group Families and Friends,

Thank you for wonderful year of ministry!  Despite our winter weather that hampered our Wednesday gatherings and 8th Grade Retreat, we were still able to have a pretty good S.T.O.R.M year. We had an amazing group of young people and adults who participated in our sessions and activities of EDGE & Youth Group this past year.  We got to know some very interesting facts about Saints, studied more about he Holy Spirit and learned about the importance of being part of a community of faith. We made care packages for soldiers and decorated valentines for our homebound parishioners and friends. We hosted Trunk or Treat, Christmas and Mardi Gras parties for the young people of our parish and community.  We led our congregation in praying by putting on our Silhouette Stations of the Cross and through all of these opportunities we grew closer as a young church.  With all these experiences we have also grown in our relationships with Christ!  Andrea and I look forward to what summer and next school year will bring. Please watch the bulletin, social media, emails and SM-HC website for summer activities and fundraisers for the teens. Thank you parents for your continued support of S.T.O.R.M. and for encouraging your teens in their faith journey.    

Blessings,     Andrea & Melissa, 7th-12th Youth Ministry Coordinators
