All teens entering grades 8-12 are invited to be part of the “Friends of the Poor Walk” on Saturday, September 30 at Fairhaven Park. Registration is at 8:30 a.m. and the walk will take place from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. Walkers are needed as are other volunteers to help with the event. Help the poor while you earn service hours!

Teens are also invited to “Faith Afloat” aboard the Gateway Clipper’s Empress on Sunday, October 15 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. This cruise is an opportunity for high schoolers to delve into their deepest identity as a son or daughter of God and learn how to witness their Catholic faith to the culture. The cruise will include dinner, a talk by Fr. Tom Sparacino, a witness by Theresa Sullivan, and praise and worship led by Dave Belkowski. Cost is only $10 per person. To sign up, contact Steven Swank at 412-771-7480 or by October 1.

Attention young people entering Fifth to Eighth Grade: “412” is coming! This new program for middle schoolers gets its name from 1 Timothy 4:12, “Let no one have contempt for your youth, but set an example for those who believe, in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity.” More information will be announced in coming weeks so stay tuned!
