Advent Service Project
Once again for the advent season we will be gathering supplies for Rare Breed and Laura House. The first weekend of Advent you can expect to see our "Giving Tree" in the Gathering Area. On the tree will be leaves with different items needed by the Rare Breed and Ambassadors for Children organizations. Last year we were so blessed and thankful for all the gracious and abundance of donations. Every year we set our goal to top the past year.  I think we can do it!  
Items still needed: 
gift cards to: McDonalds, Taco Bell, Sonic etc….
gift card to: Target, Wal Mart, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Gordmans, Payless Shoes etc
gift card to: Hollywood Theater, Springfield 11 
Buss Passes,  Blankets,  Nail Polish and Manicure sets,  Perfume or cologne,  lotion,  shampoo and soap,  socks and shoes,   sweat shirts and pants,   good winter coats
Anything you can do will be most helpful. 
DON’T FORGET…..Fri.  Dec. 8th @ 6:30 & 8:30 am and 6:30 pm- Holy Day of Obligation- Immaculate Conception
Sunday, December 17th- Christmas Program and Dinner
We will not have an official youth group meeting that night but I do need Youth to come and help out with tear down of the gym after the program and help the younger kids and the carol sing before. Please meet at 4:30 in the youth center and we will stay for the program, help take down the gym and then go over for dinner in the Parish Hall.
Mon. Dec. 19th- Parish Penance Service 7pm
CREED-TUESDAY, JAN. 2ND Ronald McDonald House
Both groups CREED and ROC have also adopted a Family Dinner Night at the Ronald McDonald House in Dec. The High School Youth Group-CREED will be cooking on Jan. 2nd and the Jr. High School- ROC will be cooking on the Nov.29th. We will be cooking and serving dinner to the families at the Ronald McDonald House. This project not only allows the kids to do something outstanding to help others in need, but also gives them a fun and rewarding volunteer experience.
Other Stuff…..
Of course don’t forget DYC (Diocesan Youth Conference) and Steubenville Mid America Conferences….We are always planning and getting prepared for these two conferences throughout the year. Even though these conferences are a few months ahead… we are raising funds, finding chaperones to go with us and compiling a roster of attendees.  DYC is in March and Steubenville is in July. Registration for Steubenville begins in Feb. and it’s really hard and competitive to get in. I have begun filling up a roster and will be also speaking to Confirmation and 8th grade PSR classes as well. Pray for our Youth to have open hearts to come with us for a weekend of prayer, retreat and good fellowship.
Youth Group Meetings
Of course conferences are not the only thing SEAS Youth Ministry focuses on. We meet on Sunday nights (6-8) in the Youth center and are always sharing and growing in our faith. Please pray for the continued spiritual growth of all our teens. They live in a very complicated world and many times are conflicted with the choices they are forced with.  We are always here for them no matter what. Please encourage any youth you know to get involved in Youth Ministry. I will do the same.  Dec. dates for CREED are 3rd, 10th and 17th. With Jan. 2nd our Ronald McDonald House night. 
Please put all of these dates on your calendar.
