We are excited that we can send some of our SMA youth on a mission trip to Costa Rica this July. Our youth missionaries, in collaboration with the Diocese of Easton, will help to build a church and participate in vision screening.
Last month, the group hosted a Costa Rican Dinner in our Parish Hall. Those in attendance learned a little bit about the trip and the goals of the mission team, and tasted delicious Costa Rican food prepared by the youth and a few parents. Funds from the dinner went toward the mission trip fundraising goals.
During the Garden Market, pretzels were sold along with chances to win a “money tree”. These two additional fundraising opportunities helped, but more fundraising is needed so our youth can participate in this worthwhile experience.
Here are some additional opportunities to help support our youth:
- Envelope Drive will be conducted on Sunday, May 8th during the two church services.
- Yard sale at North East Middle School on Saturday, May 14, from 7-1. If you have any items to donate to our yard sale please bring them to church with you next Sunday or drop them off at Debbie and Dana Cain’s house.
- Benefit dinner at Pier 1 Restaurant on Wednesday, May 18th. We picked this date because it is chicken and dumpling night and the night of the next vestry meeting. You will need to get a coupon from the back of the church to hand to your server, so the Youth Group will receive 10% of all sales from 4-7 p.m. on May 18th. Also, please sign up in the desired time slot on the chart at the back of the church the preliminary count is due to Pier 1 on Monday, May 16.
- Premier Jewelry party in the St.Mary Anne’s parish house from 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, June 11. We will also be having a catalog sales between the services on Sunday, June 12. For added fun we will be raffling off the hostess free jewelry for a dollar a chance or 6 chances for 5 dollars.
Thanks for your participation in advance!
