High School CYO

Let us pray that this summer is the most relaxing, safe one we have had in a long time!

First of all, please extend a warm welcome to our newest members of CYO!  We want them to feel “at home” with us as quickly as possible.  You are the only ones who can do this.

Here is the tentative schedule for June-July.  Things do change, so be prepared to get a text or email from me anytime.  PLEASE MAKE SURE I HAVE YOUR INFORMATION (email and cell number) SO THIS IS POSSIBLE!.

There will be times when I need chaperones.  Don’t discourage your folks from volunteering because some activities could be canceled if I have no help.  Ask and encourage them!!! 

Here is our schedule. Please post somewhere so you will see it. It’s also on the website (stdominicmobile.org)

NOTE:  ** means deadlines for reservations or a need for money, permission slips, etc.  Pay close attention to these particular details if you are interested in them. 

NOTE:  I have canceled all Memorial Weekend events. I only heard from one of you as to whether you could be here or not.  Obviously, this I just not a good weekend for anything but the beach.

**Friday, June 2nd:  Mini Lock-in from 6 – midnight in the gym. We’ll be doing a lot of everything; games, food, movie, service and spiritual.
