Special Olympics Awareness Day is Sunday, October 21


The third Sunday of October, October 21, 2012 is Special Olympics Awareness Day (SOAD) across the Antiochian Archdiocese. On Sunday, October 21st, your local teen group will seek financial help from Antiochian parishioners in funding the 2013 Special Olympics Sports Camp to be held at the Antiochian Village August 9-17, 2013. Next summer we will be celebrating our 32nd Annual Special Olympics Sports Camp. This ministry is sponsored by the North American Council of Teen SOYO. Our teens work very hard for this ministry and rely on the generosity and support of the faithful of our Archdiocese and the Order of St. Ignatius.

We Need YOUR HELP!

Please publicize this day. Special Olympics Awareness Day bulletin inserts are attached below, one set for October 14th and the other for October 21st. Please include these inserts in your bulletin. Also attached are a letter to Antiochian clergy and an address to be delivered in church by teens on Special Olympics Awareness day. Your enthusiastic promotion of such a worthwhile ministry will go a long way in producing fruitful results from our faithful.
