SMYG usually dedicates one SMYG meeting a year as a “bracket” meeting, which pays homage to the NCAA tournament.  Each year we determine which part of the Living Stations script should reside on the back cover of the program by using this method.  This year SMYG has chosen the following lines for the back of our program “We each have a unique cross to bear, the cross of our individual lives.  And it is this cross which is the way to heaven.  To be without a cross is the absolute worst thing that could happen to anyone.”

Please put the Living Stations of the Cross on your calendar on Friday, April 14, 2017 from 7 –7:45 PM.  I’ve placed a couple picture from our 1st practice on the right hand column of this article.

Request for the week:  Let’s pray for the strength to live out our 40 day challenges as presented in our homilies throughout Lent.

Some steps to stay connected to SMYG:

√ Sign up to Remind to receive text messages on SMYG activities for the week. You can sign up by texting @57d6b to 81010.   If 81010 does not work, you can text @57d6b to (620) 412-4053. This is a great way for YOUTH to stay connected to all of SMYG’s happenings.

√ Sign-up to the weekly SMYG e-mail by e-mailing Chris Kozlowski . Please use SMYG e-mail sign-up in the subject line. Weekly e-mails include the Gospel reading for the week, a reflection (usually taken from a 3rd party source such as the lectionary workbook), an inspirational quote for the week, and a (corny) joke of the week. Additionally, the e-mail will include attachments for permission slips, information on events, etc. The e-mail is a great way for PARENTS and youth to stay connected to all of SMYG’s happenings.

√ Read the bulletin article every week. The bulletin articles explain what transpired at past SMYG meetings, it also explains upcoming opportunities.

√ Text me (Chris Kozlowski) on my cell phone (248) 821-8686 with any questions about our program and the opportunities that are available.

√ E-mail Chris Kozlowski  with any questions about our program and the opportunities that are available for youth.

√ Attend YPT meetings, usually 1 hour prior to SMYG meetings on Wednesday nights. All are welcome to attend these meetings, YPT stands for Youth Planning Team, and this group helps provide direction for events and meeting topics.

I look forward to meeting you, nd joining you on your faith journey. Attend SMYG and I promise that your faith life will change for the better. ~Chris
