Can the Veggie Tales crew stop the Weed? Join us for snacks, drinks, a movie and a craft to learn that God doesn’t want us to tell stories that can hurt people. God wants us to spread nice words.

These reflections are very inspirational, especially because they come from the future of the Church: our young people.

    To complete an activity review, please follow the directions given on page 25 in the “How To” book you were given at the Opening Meeting. E-mail the reflection in a Word document to alober@stlouisparish.org. I would highly recommend that these reflections be completed on the same day the Mass is attended. In that way, the student is able to remember details from the high school student.
