Weekly Updates for Oct 10: Classes resume Sunday, Prayers Needed for Isabella, Service Opportunities, DYC Save the Date, and more.
We hope you had a wonderful fall break this past Sunday! Many families joined us at Busch Gardens. Many other families said they were going to spend the “extra hour” in a special way.
PREK-HS programming resumes this Sunday.
All programs will meet from 10:05 to 10:55. Middle & High School Youth Groups - come to the Parish Hall.
Our Youth Group and Cathedral families had a great trip to Busch Gardens. Along with all the fun rides, we went to Mass together with many other parishes from the diocese in the park. Bishop Knestout was the celebrant and said he had not been to an amusement park in 25 years - but he still remembers the feeling of being on a roller coaster! Thanks to the chaperones / drivers for making sure our Cathedral youth were safe and had lots of fun too!
Please keep Isabella Daye, Agnus Dei Catechist, altar server, and high school junior, and the Daye Family in your prayers. Isabella has been experiencing severe headaches and eye pressure. She was in the hospital over the weekend and the family is working with specialists on the next steps.
We have service opportunities throughout the year for middle and high school youth and parents too!
