Youth Activities Week

John Paul II Youth Group will be sponsoring an “Activities Week” during the week of June 15-19th.  Each night this week we will host a different activity.  This is a way for us to celebrate the end of the year, and to recruit new students into our youth group.  Anyone who has just finished grades 6-12 at any area school are welcome to the events.  Pre-Registration is highly recommended.  (We need pretty accurate numbers to run these events well)  All events will begin at 6pm.  (Except Paintball - 5pm)  More Information about each event will be available at our website, http://jpii.stbenedictchurch.org  We use volunteerspot for our online sign-ups.  It’s pretty easy, just put in your email and click how many from your family will attend each event.  Sign-ups are online for Monday/Wed/Friday.  Tuesday and Thursday require paper forms and money which can be dropped off at St. Benedict Church Office. REGISTRATION FOR COAL TUBING AND PAINTBALL ARE DUE JUNE 12TH – WE CAN TAKE LIMITED WALK-UP REGISTRATIONS FOR BOTH EVENTS, BUT PLEASE REGISTER SO WE KNOW NUMBERS!!!
