Hello everyone!
Please let me know if you will be able to come together as a group on Sunday, May 17th immediately following
the Noon Mass in the church hall. I thought a Pot-Luck would be a great beginning for the group. Something simple
to share with the other families ~ would be great! I will ask the teens in the Confirmation Classes to come and help
watch the children after the lunch, so that the adults can discuss where you see this group going and when you want
to meet again. Sky is the limit ~ remember it is your group ~ you can decide. I am only here to help get it started!

RSVP would be helpful for setting up the room and figuring out how many children will need babysitters.
I am looking forward to seeing you on May 17th.

Enjoy this beautiful day!
