ICC NEWSLETTER - August 9, 2019
August 9th? Already? Many of you reading this will have been "there and back again" like Bilbo Baggins. Others of you have been watching all there friends go and come from their vacations, waiting for their chance at a much less crowded highway or plane. Regardless of whether you've gone, or are about to, here is the latest and the greatest.
What happens to a CCD Program when you don't have enough Catechists to teach? We don't know, and we don't want to find out!
What we do know is that Adrienne Lauer needs wonderful parishioners, like you, to help teach our students! We need a Catechist, or back up Catechist, for 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. These are
we are talking about, which makes them great! Just ask our CYO Coaches. Plus, there is a big tuition discount for parents who sign up to teach. The more your commitment, the more the tuition reduction. Call Adrienne at 591-7740 to find out.
A GREAT BIG THANKS
Speaking of active parents, this week the ICC CYO presented the parish with a
donation of $20,000
. And in addition to this wonderful show of generosity, our CYO also funded the repair and refinishing of the school basketball court. (Wait 'til you see it!)
Did you know that
of the work that goes into running the program, registrations, coaching, concession sales, team parenting, cleanup, setup and more is
?! This season, make certain to thank them for their support of ICC by
rooting them on
at their games. Keep your eye on upcoming ICC Newsletter emails to learn more about their game schedule, and make sure to pick up a snack or two while you're there to support the teams!
It's all about spirit... and
. In just a little over 5 weeks, ICC will be holding its 4th Annual Parish Council BBQ! There will be hamburgers, hot dogs, vegetarian vittles, salads, and much, much more!
this year, Adrienne Lauer, CRE, wants there to be
a lot of kids
because it is also
, the kick off to the REP year which will start that following Wednesday! So she is planning games and more fun.
Let's fill the yard with "heaps o' young 'uns", proud parents, smiling solos, fab food, and lots of laughter!
