Greetings Youth Leaders!
I hope this message finds you well and HOPEFULLY we’re finally going to enjoy some Fall weather, although I hear it’s going to get hot again. Today I want to share with you some resources for our PYM Sr. High Weekend which is a little less than 2 weeks away (November 3rd-5th @ Shrine Mont). The committee has been very active planning and getting organized for our first retreat and we’re really excited about everything lined up including our keynote speaker this year, Connor Gwin! Connor is no stranger to our Diocese and served our camps as staff chaplain several summers ago. He also has extensive camp and youth experience (Diocese of SWVA & Kanuga) and really knows the nature of our group well. We’re very excited to have him back on the mountain!
The weekend promises to be a big success and we hope you can bring a group from your church, and to help with that recruiting effort we have some resources to share:
- The first resource is the registration packet itself here. Please note that pages 3 and 4 are information about the weekend and can be helpful for explaining what exactly the weekend might look and feel like.
- You can also go to our blog’s “PYM 101” page for more information about PYM and our weekends. Click here to learn more.
- The committee also created a flyer that would be perfect for a bulletin board in your parishes or however you see fit. Here’s the YouTube video they made a couple months ago…… you can tell they’re excited :).
Registration is NOW OPEN and we’ve already had a few groups sign up. Registration is $150 per participant and that’s all inclusive (room, board, programming). We do have some scholarship money available if needed, please inquire with me directly. Let me know if you have any questions or if there’s anything I can do. Thank you again so much for all your support, see you all at Shrine Mont in a few weeks!
