Permission slips for the Fall Retreat can be turned in and are due by September 25. The Fall Retreat will take place at Our Lady of the Angels Retreat Center in Lemont from Saturday, October 22 until Sunday, October 23. This Retreat gives teens the opportunity to better get to know the other participants and adults, and to get away from the stresses of life for the weekend. The theme of the retreat is “Jesus Calls Us” and our teen leaders will be sharing how they have felt the call of Jesus in their own lives.  There will be great discussions and, of course, great fun. We have lots of free time to get to know one another. The retreat will include a ticket to the Purified Event at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on Sunday night. We will attend the event and then parents will pick up from there. We hope parents will buy their own ticket and join us at the event. The permission slips are BRIGHT PINK and are available on the rack in the back of church and in the Parish Office. They can be turned in to the S.T.O.R.M. Meeting, or dropped off at the Parish Office. The retreat is open to all 8th Graders and High School students!

Permission slips for the Haunted Corn Maze and Moonlight Hayride and Bonfire can also be turned in. The event will take place on Sunday, October 9 and the permission slips are bright orange. This is open to middle and high school teens. They are DUE by October 2.

Purified Event with Jason Evert will take place on Sunday, October 23 from 6-8 pm at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Darien.

STORM will be participating in a Mission Trip to Jerusalem Farm in Kansas City, Missouri June 18 - June 24, 2023. This is an amazing trip, that gives teens the opportunity to serve those in need for a week in the summer and spend time together for fun activities and prayer.  They learn about why we do service and will learn about the Jerusalem Farm Cornerstones of Prayer, Service, Community, and Simplicity. Most kids go in thinking they will be giving so much, but they end up getting more than they give!  It's open to 8th Graders & High School Teens! The application and deposit is DUE October 30!
