Hello friends!  I apologize for my inability to participate in youth activities so far this winter.  COVID 19 has had such an impact on our families and our communities.  I hope and pray for better days ahead.  I will be putting Adoration, hiking and Steubenville Atlanta on our upcoming schedule, so please watch emails, Instagram and the St. Paul bulletin.

Cassidy Hayes and Isabella have worked on the creation of a youth ministry sweatshirt.  Please see attached for design and the link below for color choices.  We can order some of the colors with black writing, and some with white writing.  I am pretty sure I can keep the cost to $20 each shirt.  We must place a minimum order of 12 shirts.  There is an extra charge for anything above XL.

So look through the color choices, and let me know what you want, and which color of ink you want.  Mostly lighter colors and gray will need the black ink.
