Tween Mission Trip: July 15-19, 2013
Pre-teens ages 10-12 are invited to take part in Group Mission Trips’ Week of Hope in Orlando, Florida. At Week of Hope, students will be challenged to live as Jesus, did as they serve the needs of people through local ministries and non-profit organizations. Campers descend upon a community and provide helping hands by serving meals to the homeless, working with disabled children, sharing stories with an elderly person, and much more. Contact Mtr. Kelsey Hutto at email@example.com for more information.
Youth Sunday Service and Parish Picnic: May 19, 10:30 a.m.
A special Sunday service honoring our youth is set for May 19 at 10:30 a.m. Our annual celebration of Sunday School, YOSH (Youth of Saint Hilary’s), and all the children and teens of St. Hilary’s will take place after church on May 19 in the grassy area in front of the sanctuary. Join us for lunch, water fun, bouncing, music, and more. All are welcome!
YOSH (Youth of St Hilary’s)
YOSH is an active group of middle and high schoolers which meets every other Wednesday for youth group and has regular outings throughout the year around our community and throughout the state. In addition to summer mission work, youth are involved in missions right here at home, whether that is a Saturday serving lunch at the Soup Kitchen or cleaning a parishioner’s yard. Youth are also a very visible and integral part of our worship as Acolytes, Lectors, Intercessors, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers, and Greeters. Youth are welcome to participate in any ministry that interests them! Contact Mother Kelsey Hutto for more information. Check our parish calendar for YOSH meeting times and dates.
Middle schoolers and high schoolers meet in the YOSH House to explore what it means to be loved by God, to build relationships with other teens and to have a safe place to share their doubts, thoughts and experiences, to ask questions, and to support one another. Sometimes the groups meet together. Sometimes they are separate. Sometimes we watch videos. Sometimes we have skits. Sometimes we play games. Sometimes we share and listen to one another. We always experience the love God has for us through the people we meet. Join us Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m.
Help with Youth Dinners
Have you ever wanted to help with the Youth Group but didn’t know how? How about providing food for our weekly meetings? It is a well-known fact that if you feed them they will come. We are in need of dinners (either home-cooked or bought) for our Youth. There will be a sign-up sheet in Browning Hall on the bulletin board for those who would like to sign up for specific weeks. If you would like to give money for a week or cook, the choice is yours! Please take a look and see if you could feed our youth for a night!
