OLGC Parish School Seeks Science Fair Judges
particularly those with a science, education, or engineering background, to
judge and score our Middle School Science Fair. This volunteer opportunity
may take 2-4 hours. If you or someone you know (work associate, family
member, etc.) would like to participate, please contact me as soon as
possible. Due to concerns over conflict of interest we would prefer that
parents of students in grades 7-8 NOT participate in judging.

Time: 8:30 AM – 1:30 PM
Where: 1151 William Street, Plymouth MI
Interested volunteers are asked to contact Terry Zimmerman ASAP.
Programs for Girls - A Recommendation from Fr. John
Among those groups are American Heritage Girls and The Little Flowers/Roses of St. Therese, which together make up a ministry for our daughters that puts Jesus at its core and focuses on building young women who do the same. AHG’s mission is “to foster our girls’ relationship with Jesus, and develop them into women of integrity who serve God, their families, and their communities.” Little Flowers/Roses’ mission is “to teach the virtues through Scripture, the lives of the Saints, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.” Both groups are similar to Girl Scouts, for whom I am deeply grateful as they have served our parish well for many years, but with a more Jesus-centric approach and Catholic alignment. This ministry has everything we look for when giving our blessing as parish priests.
That being said, I strongly urge you and your families to consider joining one or both of these outstanding groups. As one of my colleagues said recently, “Jesus is alive in these programs, and He is waiting to meet your daughters.” Bring them to Him. To learn more about American Heritage Girls, contact Jennifer Brunner, or visit their website. And stay tuned for more information about a come and see kickoff meeting early next year. To learn more about Little Flowers/Roses (program levels are divided by age and grade), contact Teresa Grumm or check the parish calendar for their various meetings and events.
May the peace and joy found only in a close relationship with Jesus light your heart through this Christmas season.
In His Love,
