St. Andrew Youth Ministry & Faith Formation
There is EDGE this Wednesday, January 22nd. It was a day we had previously said was an "off" day and was built into the calendar for justt this reason. It's much easier to make the days up now, versus at the end of the year. SO:
January 22 - EDGE

Bishop Boyea has announced that he will be coming to St. Andrew on Wednesday October 30th to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation. The liturgy is scheduled for 7:00 PM.
Take advantage of the slower pace of summer to get caught up on any missing Confirmation Prep tasks or assignments. Completed work can be dropped off in the drop-box outside the Parish Office when you are here for Sunday Mass. Updated Progress Reports are being emailed out this month.
If Saline Area Schools are cancelled due to bad weather, EDGE on that day will be cancelled. If the children are sent home early due to inclement weather, EDGE will be cancelled. If school is not cancelled, and the weather situation worsens, the director will make the decision to cancel classes. EDGE Team Leaders will attempt to notify parents: however, sometimes this is impossible. If class is cancelled, a message will be placed on the youth office phone by 4:00 PM. The number to call is 429-8467. Please do not call the front office or Mrs. Carter's cell phone. We make every effort to ensure the safety of all of our youth and families.
CREDO will be cancelled if the weather on Sunday becomes a hazardous for travel. A notification of cancellation will appear on Facebook and on the youth office answering machine (734-429-8467) by 4:00 PM. It will also be announced at the 5:30 PM Mass, if possible. Please do not call Mrs. Carter's cell phone or the main office. We will make every effort to ensure the safety of our youth.
This summer, St. Andrew Youth Group will once again be participating in a Mission Trip. We will be joining other Catholic Youth at a Catholic Heart Work Camp in St. Ann’s Bay, Jamaica. CHWC is an organization who shares in the love of Christ and serves the neglected, brokenhearted, and marginalized in any way needed. This camp inspires participants to live as Disciples of Christ through serving others and fosters the spiritual growth of each participant through the sacraments, Catholic faith sharing and prayer. We went to a CHWC two years ago, in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. It was AMAZING!
The international camps are a slightly different experience than the U.S. Catholic Heart Work Camps. They are simple in programming (no stage or lights, Carpenter Commandos, or lots of media presentation) yet rich in learning and deep in a spiritual journey.
We will repair homes, participate in children’s ministry and projects that arise through partnering with leaders in the local community. The people of the island offer a relaxed spirit despite the stress of great poverty.
Participants will be inspired as they serve the poor of St. Ann’s Bay, Jamaica in partnership with IsleGo Missions.
Be prepared to work tirelessly, think deeply, celebrate daily mass, and of course it would not be CHWC without some fun, incredible music, an amazing free day and a few surprises.
COST: Cost for the camp is $875. Airfare is NOT included. At this time, we have an estimated cost of airfare of $650 (all taxes and fees included). So a total estimated total cost of $1525. We have a definitive cost by May 1st.
Iteniary and Information, Registration Form
St. Andrew Credo's goal is for high schoolers to better Know, Serve, Love, and Celebrate our Lord, Jesus Christ. Each month will feature all four of these characteristics of youth faith formation, using the guidelines put out by the USCCB and following the format supplied by Life Teen International. Credo meets on Sunday nights from 6:30-8:45.
The St. Andrew Confirmation Preparation program begins in the Fall and concludes in the Fall of the following year. Confirmation Prep I (September-June) is open to youth in the 9th grade or older. Sessions occur roughly 3 Wednesdays per month, from 7:00-8:30 PM. Confirmation Prep II (September �November of the second year) involves an internship, occasional Sunday night (6:45-8:30 PM) sessions, and the Confirmation liturgy.
