Encouraging the Growth of Our High School Students
Next Meeting: November 18
Teen Outreach is a great way to contribute to the community in a fun and meaningful way and to develop skills that will help at school, in future careers, and in life.
Recent projects include stuffing and donating backpacks for Apostles’ House and Philip’s Academy, making quick-release safety bracelets for deployed service people overseas, cleaning up the Woodcliff Lake Reservoir in canoes, and helping organize food for the Social Services annual Thanksgiving Drive.

The YPF (Young People's Fellowship) is a youth group for grades 6 and 7 that encourages growth in two ways. First, its monthly parties give sixth and seventh graders social gatherings where they can enjoy fellowship while practicing consideration for others, social skills, and leadership skills. Second, the parties allow them to build the type of caring community that will make their experience in the eighth grade Confirmation program especially rewarding. They develop friendships not only with one another, but also with the Adult Advisors including the Rev. Joan Conley, who is in regular attendance. Each one is welcome to bring a guest to any YPF party. All YPF parties will require rsvp.
Six YPF “dinner ‘n games” parties are planned for Sunday nights from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall. The next party is a Nutty November Dinner ‘n Games Party on Sunday, November 18 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall. All sixth and seventh graders are invited to have some have some good, nutty fun! Don’t let shyness keep you at home. Be gutsy and come! Regrets are not necessary, but email acceptances are required no later than Friday, November 16. Guests are welcome; every guest must bring the filled-out Participant's Registration Form
