Hello OYMT Members,
Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever!
Hope everyone is enjoying a good start to their Lenten journey.
It’s time to focus on our stock sales—our biggest fundraiser for our mission trip to Alaska. At this point all letters have been mailed (for the few of you who were not at the meeting you should have received your materials in the mail and if you haven’t already, please mail out on Monday). Now to our parish sales: I have sent an email to all of your parish priests. Please remember to coordinate with your priest as you plan your coffee hour stock sales. It is essential that everyone participate in this fundraiser. Beth included sheets in the stock kit for sign-ups for each of the Sundays during lent. Every youth and adult leader should take a turn or work as a group. Hitting our goal of $20,000 is necessary to make it possible to fund our trip.
Our next mandatory training session will be Sunday March 12th from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at St. Barbara (480 Racebrook Rd, Orange, CT 06477). We will be doing some specific training for our work in Alaska and will also go over the schedule and details for the weekend training session on April 29-30.
Please bring any stock sales that you have received, $5 for dinner and, if you have not already paid it, the final $150 volunteer fee.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at St. Barbara.
