YOUTH GROUP FROM PHILADELPHIA
On Thursday, August 8th, a Catholic youth group from Philadelphia came through the Renovo area on their way to Ole Bull State Park as part of their summer pilgrimage. They called last week to see if Saint Joseph’s Parish could feed them, as they were low on funds this year. With the help of Matthew 25/Parish Life, we were able to quickly organize and fund a meal for them. There were over 60 students along with chaperones that came through to take a quick rest stop and have a hot meal. They had a great time playing the piano and playing volleyball in our parking lot. It was such a rewarding experience to see so many young people excited to be a part of our Faith and willing to enjoy time away to experience all that God has to offer. We would like to thank Judy Kurutz, Barb Fedele, Angie Lavelle, Vicky Penton, Lisa Houser, Terry Buranosky, Dorothy Costulas, Sarah Rathmell, Ben Probert, and Kayla Probert for all of their help on such short notice! We would not have been able to do it without you!
