Good Afternoon Everybody! 

First of all, a great big thank you to everyone who helped with the 
Pittsburgh trip!  It was a great success!  I think everyone enjoyed 
themselves, and were even asking about doing another one at some 
point.  Start thinking of possibilities, we do have a trip to the 
Byzantine Church in Hawk Run and Latin Mass in Patton to do at some 
point yet. 

This Week, 
we'll be continuing our book discussion.  We're up to Book 2, Chapters 
3 & 4 this week for those reading ahead.  We probably have one-two 
more week until we complete book 2.  So think about whether you want 
to continue onto book 3, or if we want to take a break for a while and 
do something else in the "lesson" time.  I'm always open to 
Suggestions!  Perhaps some of you guys would like to pick a topic and 
run a night....if you're feeling ambitious, I think we could even make 
that work!  Let me know your ideas! 

Fall Schedule 
Very shortly, School will be starting, so we need to decide what we're 
doing for the fall.  I don't think it'll be a good idea to meet on 
Fridays again until football season is over.  So that leaves us a 
couple of options.  We could meet Sundays.  Confirmation will be held 
Sunday evenings in the fall, so that would mean either before or after 
(makes a long night, but also many of you are already here)  Mondays 
are out for me, Tuesday night could work from 8pm-9pm.  or Wed night 
after the 7pm mass (but that's scout night).  Thursday is ADO, and I 
don't want to hold two groups at conflicting times.  So start thinking 
which option you'd prefer.  We'll talk this week and I'll do another 
poll online. 

That time is here again, we're up for helping with Doughnuts on sunday 
the 28th after the 9:30 Mass.  If you're available, please come help. 
Now that the 11:30 is moved to noon, you can come to help set up 
around 10:15, and stay for the noon mass, or come after 9:30 mass and 
help serve & clean up.  Check what you can do, and let me know 

New Website 
Now that the Parish website is finally all working, we're starting to 
do group pages, so you can find our new website at http://ym.ourladyofvictory.com 
If there's ever announcements, permission slips, forms, polls, or 
anything like that to download, I'll make sure it's posted over there 
for reference. 

Movie Night 
The youth room looks great now, so we'll have to schedule our next 
movie night soon.  I'm thinking possibly next week, Aug 26th, before 
school starts up.  Let me know your thoughts!  I do sort of feel 
obligated to make it "Tangled" for all the people who really wanted to 
watch it last time though.... 

That's all I can think of for now! 
See you all on Friday!
