Outdoor Youth Mass—Please join us for a unique and exciting event on Sunday, September 29. It is our pleasure to invite all families of the Pastorate to an outdoor youth mass at 4:00 PM on the ball field behind Seton Catholic School in Farley. With a message that our faith life and “regular life” go hand-in-hand, we will be celebrating youth activities with Mass. Please have your children wear their favorite jersey, uniform or t-shirt that represents an activity that they enjoy or a team that they follow. This will be the first offering of Intergenerational activities for our SUPR Summer program families. After Mass, join us for a free will donation supper of pulled pork in St. Joseph’s Church hall. Mass will be held rain or shine (rain location is St. Joe’s Church). Let’s celebrate the youth and all the places that they take their Catholic spirit!
