All Night Lock In!

Dear St Thomas Village Teens,

I hope all is well with you! I can't believe the summer is almost over. I also can't believe school supplies cost only $9 at Walmart! Seems like a bit of a stretch, no? At any rate, the approach of school does mean that weekly Village Meetings will soon be returning to our Sunday nights!!

To celebrate the advent of school and the return of Village Meetings, we're having a Fall Kickoff event- an All Night Lock In at Paradise Park in Novi, Michigan. Join us next Saturday August 22nd and you’ll enjoy unlimited go-karts, laser-tag, mini golf, trampolines, soccer cages, a climbing wall, video games, and movies! AND, we’ll be having a pizza party at midnight, an ice cream social at 3am, and a continental breakfast at 6am! If you think that sounds sweet, it gets better. This event only costs $25. Return payment and attached permission slip by next Wednesday, August 19th to get in on the action!

Sunday Mass will not be offered during this event, and it is not recommended that you plan to attend Mass Sunday morning, as you will be exhausted! Please attend Mass before arriving, or make plans to attend Sunday evening after a good long nap.
  • Saturday there is a 4:30pm Mass at St Thomas and a 5pm Mass at St Francis
  • Sunday there is a 5pm Mass at St Mary’s
Stay tuned for more information on our first Village Meeting, Sunday September 13th! Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

God Bless, Beth
