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!

Hello everyone! My apologies for no confirmation blog posting last week regarding the drop-in. We are on for the drop-in this week, and we will begin at 3:00pm and run until 5:00pm. If there are any parents who are willing to assist and volunteer their time to be with me this week that would be fantastic. As we, prepare for Easter and are approaching the end of Lent, I would like to begin this week's drop-in program by taking the group through the Stations of the Cross in the Church. We will meet as we usually do in the Parish Hall and go as a group together over to the Church. If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out and get in touch with me at: pdosman@st-bonaventure.ca. Hope to see all the same faces and some more new ones this week :)! God Bless!
