We hope your student had a great start back to school whether it was in person or virtual! We look forward to resuming weekly CYM meetings with your student on Sunday, September 13th at 4:00 pm. Please see our plan below and register your student for the 2020-20201 CYM year here: https://forms.gle/g6FqSH8GUQxjimmp8. 

2020-2021 Catholic Youth Ministry Plan


St. Mary CYM will meet on Sunday afternoons from 4:00-5:00 pm starting September 13. These meetings will be held outside (in the grassy area of the St. Mary Playground), weather permitting, where proper physical distancing can be best maintained. Your student is invited to bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. If the weather does not allow for an outdoor meeting, we will meet inside the Parish Hall. We will sit one family group per table. When physical distancing cannot be maintained all students and adult volunteers will wear masks in accordance with diocesan and parish practices.   
Facebook will continue to be our primary form of communication. If you are not currently a member of our private group you can request to join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/320163861463720. We will be posting additional faith base content to our page on Wednesdays that you can utilize at home.
We will utilize the Remind app to communicate with students this year. Please have your student join our CYM Remind “class” using this code: @stmarycym.
 
 
All Fall Diocesan programming has been cancelled. They are continuing to monitor the situation and hope to resume programming in the Spring.

 

If you do not plan for your student to immediately attend in person CYM meetings, and would like additional materials to use with your student at home please email us. We are happy to suggest and provide materials to support you and your student on their faith journey. 

 

If you have further questions or concerns please call (Julia 870-450-3984 / Ben 716-939-0016) or email us (julia.kueter@gmail.com).

 

Sincerely,
