Father Joseph Purpura, chairman of SOYO and of the Department of Youth and Parish Ministry, writes:
Help us reach the $55,000 goal NAC SOYO needs to raise for the 2013 SOYO/PASO Special Olympics Sports Camp  at Antiochian Village! We are 80% there, and we thank the 152 parishes that have sent in their 2012 Special Olympics Awareness Day Collection money. The total we have received as of December 1, 2012, is $44,128.80.
If your parish did not take the collection please consider making a donation, and if your parish has collected a donation but hasn't submitted it yet, please send in your check for the full amount collected as soon as possible. Checks should be made payable to "NAC Teen SOYO Special Olympics" and mailed to:

We thank you for your help with this ministry of NAC Teen SOYO!
