The third Sunday of October, October 20, 2013 is Special Olympics Awareness Day (SOAD) across our Archdiocese. On Sunday, October 20th, your teen group, or if you have none, your designated representatives, are asked to seek the financial help of your parishioners in funding the 2014 Special Olympics Sports Camp to be held at the Antiochian Village August 8‐16, 2014. Next summer we will be celebrating our 33rd Annual Special Olympics Sports Camp. This ministry is run by and 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. We have enclosed two bulletin inserts, one for October 13th and the other for October 20th. Please include these inserts in your bulletin and share this cause from the pulpit. Your enthusiastic promotion of such a worthwhile ministry will go a long way in producing fruitful results from our faithful.
