Good Afternoon everyone,

Sorry for the late notice on this one, there's been a LOT going on this week.  Last week we looked at a bit of a secular world's view of bullying, and now it's time to take a look at the Church's view.  So with that in mind, we'll be watching a video on Maria Goretti and discussing it, and comparing it to the video we watched last week.  I'm sure there'll be lots of thoughts and ideas.  PLEASE note there'll be a middle school dance going on upstairs, do NOT disrupt them, just head straight down to the youth room when you arrive.  (for those asking, I think this series should run for about 2-3 weeks after not including Friday)

Then, as always, there's some other events coming up....

Swing Dance! Don't forget the swing dance next week! Saturday, Feb. 18th 2012. There will be a beginner's lesson from 6:30 till 7:30, the dance will be from 7:30 till 10:30. There will be a $5 Admission fee, the proceeds will be going toward the Mission Trip to Arizona this June. Then of course it'll be in our activities center.

Nursing Home Visit - as a service project, Maria and I are working on finding a time for us to stop by one of the nursing homes in town to play bingo with the residents, and just visit a little bit.  Many of these people have very few visitors and really appreciate any they do get.  Part of our responsibility as Christians it to visit the sick, and so we'll be trying to put something together sometime soon.

Praise and Worship Night with Bishop Mark - If anyone is interested in going to the diocesan Praise and Worship day on Feb 25th, please let Eva know, all the information is available on the website.  http://ym.ourladyofvictory.com/special-events/DAJPW

See you Friday Night 8pm-10pm!
