Child: How can you help another person do the right thing? Reprinted with persission from Heritage of Faith, Published by Twenty-Third Publications.

YOUTH CORNER Congrats to the Wall football teams, Freshman, JV and Varsity who

Adoration Chapel

came out on top last Friday night. The boy‟s and girl‟s CC teams last Saturday competed well considering that they were competing against some of the top 5A teams in the state. A job well done and a great start for the year for our high school athletes. We need to clarify the date for the upcoming Pancake Breakfast/Brunch.. It will be held on September 25th from 7:00 am-1:00 pm along with the Ministry Fair. Before or after eating, we can check out what ministries are available to help with. Be watching for more details on this fundraiser. Also, don‟t forget to “like” our St. Ambrose Youth Group Page on face book. This is a vessel for us to keep students and parents informed on upcoming events. Also, be sure to „friend‟ Phyllis if you have not done so. “Phyllis Shannahan” can be found on face book and needs the youth group members (and parents) as friends for communication purposes. As always, give us a call if you have questions or comments. Peace be with you all. ~Dcn Dan and Phyllis
