Well, we had another wonderful Pancake Brunch followed by a great retreat for the St. Gregory's Youth.
This year our second annual fundraiser, the Pancake Brunch, washed 313 dishes! We had a large group of volunteers that made it happen. Thank you to all the adults and youth who participated!
Our youth retreat was on March 3 and 4. We went to Christ Campus and Spiritual center with 13 of the youth. In addition to small group activities, prayer and worship, we were able to play games and have fun together as a group. This year we stumbled upon basketball goal in a large barn with heaters, which was the hit of the retreat!
Youth Group continues on Sunday March 11. I will be out of town that weekend, but Barb Schaper and Bill Foltz will be leading the Middle School and Judy McCann and Sarah Snyder will be leading High School.
February is a month filled with special events for the Youth Group. On Feb 5, we had our annual Fuddruckers meeting which consisted of eating large burgers, playing games, and having fun together as an alternative to the super bowl.
Feb. 10 and 12 was our Lock In and Bowling weekend. On Feb. 10 the middle school had its Lock In, which began at EsKape for bowling and laser tag and ended with an all-nighter at the church, that included fun games, worship, and movies. Our bowling night was for the Sr. High. We all were a bit rusty, but seemed to improve in the end—after some pizza…
The festivities continue with the Pancake Brunch/Rent-A-Priest annual youth fundraiser on Sunday Feb. 19. The youth need to sign up for shifts for this event!

The Claremont Crew
Last Sunday the St. Gregory’s Youth went to the Claremont to decorate the doors for the Holiday season. We had a great experience meeting with the residents and sharing in the joy of the Holiday season with others. Some of the doors were really quite lavish, peppered with falling snowflakes, Merry Christmas spelled out in wrapping paper, with lintel made candy canes, and some covered with giant snowmen. Needless to say, we had a great time being creative and being together as we shared the Holiday spirit with others!
