A Special Event for Brady Faith Children

Some of our high school youth and youth from the St. Charles-St. Ann’s parish will be teaming up from July 23rd through July 25th to provide a Vacation Bible School for the Brady Faith Center’s neighborhood children.  The Brady Center will be transporting 25+ children over to St. Charles-St. Ann’s in Taunton where we will share our faith, our love and have a great time with all of the children.

We provide a bible story time & lesson, a craft, along with a snack/lunch and of course lots of fun activities.  Terri Condon, the Youth Minister at St. Charles-St. Ann’s and I have been busy planning and preparing for this terrific experience.  We absolutely LOVE working together with our high school youth and how wonderful it is to bring 2 parishes together; having our youth work side by side sharing our gifts, our blessings and our talents with the children of Brady.  What a message it sends to all!!

We are cutting back a bit this year but we do need a little help to make this happen.  Below is a list of items if you’d like to help us out with this great event.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

All items should be dropped off to the parish office by Thursday, July 11th:

individual snack size bags of chips, individual snack size pretzel sticks, Capri sun drink bags, Goldfish, marsh mellows (large and small), jars of mayonnaise, individually wrapped slices of American cheese, individual size fruit cups, fruit snacks, small apples, grapes, clementine’s, and monetary donations are always so appreciated!!

Thanks again St. Joe’s for always supporting these valuable outreach projects.  This is an incredible event for both the children of the south side of Syracuse AND for our young adults!!  Happy Summer!!
