STORM Youth Ministry is continuing a fundraiser to raise money for our Youth Ministry Mission Trips this summer. Participants are available to do odd jobs for a donation to our trips. This could include raking leaves, landscaping work, mowing the lawn, painting or shoveling snow. It could be a one time work project or ongoing. If you can give us at least one week notice that would be appreciated, or if it is ongoing, try to set it up ahead of time. All donations are then made payable to the St. Scholastica STORM Youth Ministry. Please contact Jennifer at youthministry@stscholasticaparish.org or 630-885-6439 to set up work projects.

We are going on a trip to Six Flags Great America on Wednesday, June 19. We will go for the whole day and you will have time on your own in the park. The fee includes the ticket and bus, but if you have a season pass, there is a lower fee for just the bus. You do need to bring money for food.

GO MAD (Go Out & Make A Difference) Middle School Mission Experience will take place Tuesday, July 18 and is open to current 6th, 7th & 8th Graders. It is a one day event this year.

 

This is a short term local service experience that we introduced several years ago and it has been a huge success. The high school teens help to run the experience by leading games, prayer, music, skits and witness talks. We have adults as group leaders and we have served in many different places: at church, at Feed My Starving Children, at the Northern Illinois Food Bank, at nursing homes, at the food pantry, doing yardwork at a shelter or for medically fragile kids, at a homeless shelter and much more. Serving others was fun and eye opening. We hope to have a great group of teens again this summer. This also counts as service projects for Confirmation. Permission Forms are Due by May 19.

I am attaching the brochure, application and the outline of what we talked about at the Info Meetings.  If you weren't at the meetings and want more specific info, please call me.  The cost is included in the brochure, but we are considering running the trip ourselves which will reduce the cost significantly. We will also be fundraising and had many teens and young adults that were able to fundraise a large part of their trip the last time we went to WYD and our Italy Pilgrimage. We will do some group and individual fundraising. We need to start fundraising soon, which is why we need to know who is going! We need to know who is going by May 15 so we can make reservations and start fundraising. 

 

The Jubilee for Youth will be a lifechanging trip that will include going through the Holy Doors of the Pilgrim Churches in Rome, seeing the Pope and having Mass with him, spending time learning more about our faith, and pilgrimages to Assisi and Medjugorje. In Medjugorje, there will be a Youth Festival as well and we will learn about the appearances of Mary and hear from the visionaries. We will also travel to Dubrovnik at the end for some relaxation. The Jubilee for Youth is a pilgrimage of faith when the Holy Father calls his youth to himself for six days of prayer, meditation, and instruction.  With this are also much sightseeing, cultural experiences, and the opportunity to interact with Catholic youth from all over the world.  The Jubilee will bring together Catholic youth from over 150 countries to learn about their faith and celebrate it.  It is characterized by the happiness of youth being with the Pope and with each other.  At Jubilee 2025, participants will learn how Italian Catholics live their faith and also experience life in their country.  Although this trip should be fun for the participants, please be aware that it is a Pilgrimage, not a vacation.  The main focus of the trip is the spiritual aspect.  is a pilgrimage of faith when the Holy Father calls his youth to himself for six days of prayer, meditation, and instruction.  With this are also much sightseeing, cultural experiences, and the opportunity to interact with Catholic youth from all over the world.  The Jubilee will bring together Catholic youth from over 150 countries to learn about their faith and celebrate it.  It is characterized by the happiness of youth being with the Pope and with each other.  At Jubilee 2025, participants will learn how Italian Catholics live their faith and also experience life in their country.  Although this trip should be fun for the participants, please be aware that it is a Pilgrimage, not a vacation.  The main focus of the trip is the spiritual aspect.
