MYSTERY TRIP – CONFIRMATION RETREAT – Nov 1, 2018.  Students are out of school this day, so it’s a perfect time for a Confirmation Retreat!  And this one is a TOTAL MYSTERY!  Planned especially for all of St. Mary’s Confirmation students, participants will have NO IDEA about the plans for this day retreat, except that it begins with Mass at St. Mary’s at 7:00 a.m. and will end at approximately 6:30 p.m.  Dress is casual, but suitable for Mass.  Meals will be provided.  Cost is $30, but if cost creates difficulties for anyone, scholarships are available.  Parents, if you would like to know the itinerary, we will be happy to share with you, but PLEASE help us keep this a mystery for the students.  Let’s see how many of our students are brave enough to sign up, and simply trust, when the future is unknown.  Isn’t that what God asks us ALL to do?  Do you dare?  Click here to download more information including registration paperwork
