Teen BLAST - Belonging, Learning and Serving Together
with Christ and His church.”
In August of 2013 we embarked on a journey with the youth of our Parish. Teen BLAST was the result of our effort. A way to Belong, Learn and Server Together - having fun, making friends, making a difference in the world and growing in faith. Our Parish is blessed with some extraordinary young people.
Please take some time to read the list of activities from our first year. You will see that we accomplished a great deal in the areas of Faith, Fun & Service with the help of many individuals. We're looking for dynamic teens from Confirmation age thru High School to share their great ideas and be an integral part of planning activities for next year. After all, this is YOUR group! We're also recruiting parents and adult role models willing to commit their time and talent to this effort.
Keep an eye on the bulletin and the parish youth group web page: www.moremercy.org/youthgroup.html for sign-up information for our next exciting year of BLAST. Belonging, Learning and Serving Together.
