Good Evening guys,

After I checked the schedule, it ended up that there the schedule only really worked one way, so here's what's up for the next couple weeks.

Haunted House - You guys wanted to do a haunted house, so for those interested, We'll meet this Friday (10/21) at 6pm at the Centre County Public Safety Training Center (CCPSTC) Haunted House that you guys suggested.  A cautionary warning, due to the nature of Haunted's not exactly something I can preview before we go, so please be aware of that.  They do caution that it can be scary and not to bring little kids along.  The address is 391 North Harrison Road, Pleasant Gap, PA, 16823 So it's basically just north of the mall.  Try to meet outside towards the beginning and hopefully we can find each other to go through together.

Candle-Light Saints Tour - This will be NEXT week, FRIDAY Oct 28th.  We will need a permission slip for this, they're available at  If you have already turned in the general form, then you just need the bottom half of the trip form.  If you haven't turned in the general form yet, then you need both!  All the information about the trip is on the "saintstour" PDF. It's a great trip! Come join us!  Also, remember this trip is open to Fort/ADO/Lil. Fort and families!  So if your siblings want to go, they're welcome, but remember that it is walking and can be a little scary.  PLEASE shoot me an email if you can go so I know who to expect, you can just bring the form that day.  Also, PLEASE let me know if you can carpool.

Teen Mass - The next teen Mass will be 5:30pm Sat Nov 5th at the K of C hall. This is open to ALL teens, not just the 10th graders on retreat.  Here's a link to the Facebook event

SWING DANCE!!!! - We finally have a date!  It's going to be Sat Nov 12th.  More info to follow!

Halloween Costume Drive - I know we talked about it and liked the idea.  I have everything approved.  In the next week or so, I'll have posters for you to print and hang up around town asking people to take any Halloween costumes for kids 12 and under to the SvDP store.  They've agreed to collect the costumes for us.  Then we'll ask each of you to take some home, wash, fold and pack them so we can put them in storage and have a store next fall.  

I'm also working on a potentially very special event for Sat Nov 6th....more info to follow.

God Bless,
Fr. Matt
