upcoming school year
- Hello everyone hope your all enjoying your summer!
Due to the busyness of the summer, the board has made a preliminary calendar. Please note the days we picked are mostly Wednesdays and a few Thursdays. Please let me know if those days are completely bad for you. Also all are welcome to email me with suggestions or activities and the board can review and hopefully add them to the calendar, it would be awesome however if you have a suggestions or activity that you would like to head it up and organize it.
Please note some of the calendars activities will ask for volunteers for running parts of or the whole activity, if you feel called please email me.
There are a few changes I would like to bring to everyone's attention: if all members would please log onto our yahoo site and on the first page you will find the St. Gabriel's Mission Statement if everyone could look that over it would be appreciated, thank you.
DUES; due to rapid inflation we regret to say we have to raise dues to 15$ a year. If anyone has a hard time with this please, please let us know and we can work something out. Also if anyone feels called to make anymore of a donation that would also be greatly appreciated, we ran out of money before the end of last year.
ANNOUNCEMENT; Vicky and I (Julia) are starting a new group in our parish for kids 1st grade through 5th grade it is called Faith Filled Kids For Christ. We are holding meetings once a month starting in September (tentatively) the 10th from 1:30 to 3:30. Kids will be diving deeper into our catholic faith through music, fun activities and snacks. Please email me if you're interested.
