Youth Group returns after successful Mission Trip

Thanks to all who supported our efforts in fundraising for our Mission Trip to St. Louis, MO.  Our trip was July 9-16th.  While in St. Louis, one of our  groups worked with the Griffin Center at a summer camp for children in East St. Louis and our other group helped at North Grand Community Services, a lower income parish.  At North Grand, the group did various manual tasks such as building a stone retaining wall.

We hope to see everyone at our Welcome Home Event, this Sunday, July 31st at 7pm at St. Andrew in the Church basement.  We will be sharing our experiences along with a picture slideshow.
