Saint Benedict at Auburndale Target REDcard SBA Annual Fund Great News! We received a check from Target’s Take Charge of Education Program for $2,095.38. This is such a great and easy way to beef up our Annual Fund each year. We are thrilled with this gift, but out of curiosity, looked in on our school’s progress using Target’s user-friendly website. Guess what? We only have 79 Target credit cards out there that over a period of time have totaled over $20,000 in donations over the years. CAN YOU IMAGINE IF WE ALL DESIGNATED SBA ON OUR TARGET CARDS AS OUR SCHOOL OF CHOICE? Who doesn’t go to Target? We are getting settled into the new school year, and are kicking off our Annual Fund drive. If you have a quick second, there are a few scenarios below. What a GREAT way to give to the school, and after the initial sign up, it is effortless. Please consider this super-easy way for SBA to receive a percentage of the amount of each Target purchase you make with your card. If you do not have a Target REDcard, you can go to Target.com to download the application, or pick one up in the store. If you already have a Target REDcard, you can go to their website to designate Saint Benedict as your school of choice. It is easy to search for by city and state. To see the progress report on our school and how much we have received from the Take Charge of Education program, check back to Target.com periodically. You will be amazed at how it adds up!

Thank you so much for supporting SBA!

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2012 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. Saint Francis Hospital Auditorium 5959 Park Avenue The Father/Son Program explores God’s special gifts of human sexuality and fertility as well as the goodness and wonder of His plan for growing up and becoming a man of integrity. Topics include: the physical changes in a young man’s body as it prepares for fatherhood; emotional changes; acceptance of responsibility; the functions of the male and female reproductive systems; the sacredness of human life; appreciation and reverence for the gift of sexuality; the virtue of chastity; and a question and answer segment. Healthy dating relationships with a strong emphasis on friendship, respect and chastity are also discussed. The purpose of the program is to provide an atmosphere of love and learning to discuss the important topic of growing up and to establish a foundation for continued communication between parent and child. The program is presented primarily by male NFP Center volunteers who have set high moral standards for themselves. They will emphasize respect, strong character, integrity, understanding and appreciation for God’s gifts.
