Good Morning everyone!

First of all, I hope everyone enjoyed movie night last week.  I think our wall-painting adventure really paid off!  Also, I'd like to make sure to wish everyone a great new school year!  As we all know, the beginning of the year brings lots of changes to the town and to our group.  So here's a few things to keep in mind for the next few weeks.

1. As I'm sure most of you know we've chosen our new times for football season.  We'll now be meeting Saturdays at 6:30pm-8:30pm (after the 5pm Mass.)

2. We'll be wrapping up Book 2, Chapter 5 of Mere Christianity this week.  Then we'll move onto a new topic.  I have some ideas, we'll talk about some this week, and probably use next week to brainstorm about where we'd like to go next.  I'd like to see us move into some things where each of you can take turns being the group leader, so think of some Catholic ideas you might like to go through together.

3. TEEN MASS - Msgr's Youth Council will be sponsoring a Teen Mass on Saturday Sept 17th at 5:30pm in the Social Hall.  This falls a week after the start of CCD and just before our meeting, so it would be a great time to try to recruit some new people to join us.  A facebook event about the Teen Mass will go up shortly, and I'll see that it gets sent out to everyone here on facebook.  Please come and invite friends.

4.  Other Stuff - Since we've moved to Saturday night, and I know many of you have mentioned to me about doing some "other" activities, ex: bowling, outdoor hikes, lasertag, corn maze, etc.  I'm going to put this out there for everyone.  especially during the fall, if we'd like to take a week to go do one of those things, just let me know.  If it's something the group seems to think is a good idea, I'll give you the go-ahead to find out all the information and plan things out.  Then maybe we can make them happen.

See you this Saturday!
