Update from Wade Lovell – January 12, 2023

Youth Group parents,

There is a plan in place for the youth group for the spring semester.  I am working with a couple of high schoolers who will be leading the group, Paul Folz and Sarah Church.  We are going to try and change the meeting date to Saturday after Mass.  We’ll meet in the gym (except the Jan meeting will be in the cafeteria).  We’ll eat pizza, play some games and have a short discussion about a Saint and how to live like them.  The night will conclude at 7 pm.
We plan to meet on Jan 28, Feb 25, April 15, and May 13.  Attached is a flyer.

We can always use chaperones, so if you are interested you can email or text me (812) 549-9562.

Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well,

Wade Lovell

Indiana State March for Life
120 high school youth & adult chaperones went to Indianapolis for the Indiana State March for Life on January 23. We attended Mass at St. John the Evangelist, had a quick lunch at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, and marched through downtown Indianapolis with well over 1,000 of our pro-life friends. Thank you to Bishop Siegel, Fr. Jason Gries, Fr. Garrett Braun, and Dcn. Dan Niemeier for making the trip with us!
