[From Ellyn Siftar, Youth and Young Adult Missioner]
Happy New Year from the Diocese of Bethlehem! I pray that your Christmas and Epiphany were filled with the Holy Spirit. I am writing to invite you and your youth to celebrate a beach party with the Bishop, your friends and neighbors in the diocese on Saturday, January 21st. This is a very special event with a great band, games and activities, time to chill and hang out with friends, dinner and ending with worship. It will be held at the Cathedral Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. Doors will open at 3:00 pm, program begins at 4, and youth should be picked up by 9 pm that evening. I know that this is late in the evening, so if you are coming from the north, please let me know if you’d like to stay overnight at the Cathedral (we have room for up to 15), have breakfast together and then join them for church in the morning. Parents can then pick you up by noon.
The event is open for youth in grades 6- 12. The cost is $20.00 per person; this covers the cost of a T-shirt and dinner. Reduced group rates ARE available, as space permits. Registration is now open on http://www.diobeth.org/Ministries/Youth/youth.html and is filling up fast!! In order to be registered for the event, please also fill in the Diocesan Medical Release form and Youth Covenant.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me directly at esiftardiobeth.org or 610-751-3931.
