Another Opportunity for those in 8th Grade….

Looking for a service opportunity….

Leaf Raking Service Project

Saturday, November 18

This service opportunity is open to all 8th-12 grades.  Service hours will be given to those who actively work!  This is a chance to give back to some of the families right here in Newtown who for one reason or another cannot tackle the mountain of leaves in their yard.  Many of these families cannot afford to hire someone and really depend on our help.

Please click here for the liability form: Leaf Raking Liability Form

Please turn in this form no later than November 12 so that we can reserve the right number of buses!  Forms can be turned into the Rectory, Youth Group mailbox, or St Rose School with Attn: Jenna Donovan, leaf raking on the envelope.

Would you like to Donate or volunteer?

We need many volunteers to make this night happen!  If you are virtus trained and would like to help please email Jenna Donovan at jdonovanym@gmail.com.

Many of you have been extremely generous donating your time, food, and drinks to these nights.  If you would also like a monetary donation to help with supplies for the year, please feel free!  We thank you in advance for all of your contributions in making the youth ministry at St Rose possible.

Questions?  Please email Jenna Donovan at jdonovanym@gmail.com

A Note on Edge Nights:

Edge Nights are for all 7-8 Grade youth who are sitting on the Edge of their seats, waiting to get to know Jesus, King of the Universe a little better and hangout with their friends on a Friday Night!  We welcome all youth in this age group to attend!  (You do not have to come to previous nights to be a part of the following month.)

The Edge program builds on the Excite Nights, further sharing in the main goal of the Youth Ministry of St. Rose, to experience lived Faith by encountering the person of Jesus Christ.  An evening may include games, spiritual activities geared to social issues the youth face today, small group discussion, and prayer/reflection time.  As with Excite the goal is help these youth make their Catholic Faith their own, as well as build relationships with Christ, their peers, and strong young adult Catholic witnesses.

Edge Nights will continue roughly on the Third Friday of Every Month throughout the school year, please see the schedule for exact dates.  This program is run by a core of adults and also members of our SYG (Senior Youth Group).

Each meeting will take place from 6:30-8:30pm, the meeting place TBD.  For more information or any questions please contact Jenna Donovan, the Middle School Youth Minister, at jdonovanym@gmail.com.


As always, please pray for all the youth at St. Rose as they grow in faith and friendship while learning all that our amazing Catholic faith has to offer.
