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, we extend a warm welcome to our newest members of CYO! We hope you put us first on your list of “things to do” this summer. What better way to start high school than to already have friends in place before you get there. As you make new friends, bring them along to CYO with you.
Here is the tentative and incomplete schedule for the summer. I’ll be adding movies, Bible study, afternoon games, videos, etc. a little later. Things do change, so be prepared to get a text or email from me anytime. PLEASE MAKE SURE I HAVE YOUR INFORMATION SHEET SO THIS IS POSSIBLE!.

Vacation Bible School is June 11-15. Ms. Brenda always needs high school students to help (great way to get your service hours before school even starts) but she needs to know ASAP if you are interested. The volunteer form is on the parish website.

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.

Friday, June 1st: Mini Lock-in from 6 – midnight in the gym. We’ll be doing a lot of everything; games, food, movie, service and spiritual. It’s a blast! This is designed so everyone can get to know each other. Bring a friend if you’d like.

Tuesday, June 5th: CY Bros from 7 – 8:30 at the Spirit House. This is a sub-group of CYO, designed for our gentlemen. They meet twice a month for fellowship, faith-sharing, service and fun. More will be explained at the lock-in.

Week of June 4th- 8th: I am in charge of building the set for VBS. If you sign up through Ms. Brenda, we will be working on this starting Monday at 9am. I will call all who sign up as to details.

** Sunday, July 1st: Meet at Univ. of S. Alabama’s intramural field for a great game of beach volleyball at 6pm. Bring something to share for dinner (I’ll have the fried chicken) and your permission slip (on our website). We’ll be there until around 8:15. (If it’s bad weather, we’ll reschedule.)

Sunday, July 8th: Slip N Slide Kickball- Jr. vs Sr. CYO, from 6:30 – 8:30 on the field. Wear a bathing suit UNDER your clothes, and bring a towel. If you want, you can bring your shampoo and get real clean afterwards.

Monday, July, 9th – Friday, July 13th: Life Skills Classes from 6:30 – 8 each night for ALL teens. This is designed to teach you skills needed in everyday life that aren’t taught in a classroom. Examples- simple hand sewing, car maintenance, budgets and checking accounts, simple cooking. A schedule will be sent out later that shows which skills will be taught each night. If any parent has a special request or skill they want to teach, let me know.

Chaperones are needed for this trip (don’t have to pay)! Families are welcome, too. We will meet at the church parking lot and follow each other to Sunshine Canoe’s pick-up spot. You are responsible for your own transportation but I can take 4 with me. Bring: a lunch (in a Ziploc bag), 2 drinks, towel, sunscreen. DON’T BRING ANYTHING VALUABLE!

**Thursday, August 1: Pump it Up or Lazer Tag – we’ll decide later,

Sunday, August 5th: Our 14th annual Battle of the Sexes, a crazy time playing all sorts of kids’ games vs. the other gender. There’s a trophy involved, so it’s very competitive. Bring your friends and plan to get wet and/or messy. Bring a towel, too. This is at the pavilion from 2 – 4.

Weds., August 8th: Our End of the Summer Party from 6 – 8:30 in the Spirit House.

So, you see we have no fun at all together!! One of my converts to the group recently said, “I wish I had started coming here earlier because I really missed out!” Please don’t regret it yourself.
