Hi Everyone,

UPDATES: This Friday I will be at St. Mike's teaching during the day, so I will be arriving to the church for approximately 3:30pm, but my parents (Mike and Jill) will be graciously helping me once again, so they will be there to help with the set-up and the beginning portion of the drop in until I can get there from school. Once I arrive, if the weather is nice, I would like to organize a pick-up soccer game or soccer-baseball game, for all of us to play and enjoy the nice weather together. Also, I am still working on a combination St. Bonnie's Youth Group Poster with all of the drawings that you all did for me during Lent and will hopefully have that completed for the drop in next Friday. Once again, if there are any parents or older youth who are willing to step forward and assist me with this programming or any of my other programming please do not hesitate to get in touch with me via my parish email: pdosman@st-bonaventure.ca.

God Bless!

-Pete

Hi everyone! For those of you who have been checking this blog, I apologize for the time delay in my posting for the month of April. Moving forward, I will be updating this blog much more regularly, so please pay attention to it for the most up to date information and announcements regarding Youth Ministry here at St. Bonaventure.

Important Updates: 

The elementary school drop in (Grade's 6-8)program has been a huge success so far and I hope to continue to see it grow as we move towards the end of the school year and into the summer. As the weather gets better I hope to move towards mixing in some outdoor activities in addition to the current indoor ones. Also, as the numbers for this drop in continue to grow I will be requiring more and more volunteers to assist me with set up and execution of activities. If you are a parent reading this and would be wiling to assist me please send me an email: pdosman@st-bonaventure.ca where I can begin the volunteer process. In addition, if you have any teenage children in high school who are looking for some volunteer hours, this drop in or assisting me with some of my Saturday events, would be a great way to satisfy that requirement.

The high school drop in program is not doing so great. I have had a few people interested in it, but have not had anything materialize really in the last four weeks running it. I am hoping to garner some more attraction in the coming weeks by going into a few high schools and speaking to some of the students there. This drop in program runs from 1pm to 2:15pm immediately following the 12pm mass on Sundays. It will be running this weekend for sure, so if you are interested please come check it out!

Well, thats it for updates for now, but please check the blog regularly as I will be updating it frequently in future!

God Bless,

Pete!
