ChrisTeen In the Know
Three billion people around the world live in poverty and face hunger on a daily basis. The Catechism reminds us that “the Eucharist commits us to the poor” (ccc 1397), so this year we will kick off the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s Eucharistic Congress with a Friday morning meal packing event – STARVE WARS!
Please click HERE for the permission slip if you would like your 6-12th grader to attend with volunteer drivers. If you are attending as a family - you do not need to fill out the form, we will meet at the event. We are attending the 2nd session.
We are seeking 650 volunteers of all ages to help pack 100,000 meals to go to the impoverished developing country of Burkina Faso in Africa. The event will take place Friday, June 1st at the Georgia International Convention Center in College Park. There will be two sessions, 9:00-10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m., both taking place in Hall A of the Convention Center. The organizers are encouraging ordained clergy and clergy in formation to join us for either or both sessions.
In order to be more inclusive, the both sessions will have Spanish interpreters and the second session will be set up to accommodate those living with disabilities. Space is limited and registration is required to participate.
STARVE WARS! is a collaborative effort between the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s Justice and Peace Ministries, Catholic Relief Services, Helping Hands and the people of the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
All current 6th, 7th, and 8th graders... it is time to register for our summer mission trip!!!!
June 5-8, 2018
It is a “mini-mission tour” because there are no overnight stays.
We serve our community from the inside - our Transfiguration home - out to our local counties, and then reach out even further to help other countries around the world. We will learn to “Show Our Jesus” in all we do and to everyone we encounter.
Oh yes, and we will have tons of fun too!
Please join me in changing the world this summer by signing up for the Mighty Middle School Mini- Mission Tour (M4 Tour).
Registration Forms are due by Sunday, May16 th. Click HERE or find them on the FORMS tab above.
The kids will be transported to all of our service locations by volunteer drivers, please let me know if you can help chaperone for any portion of the week or day, or be a volunteer driver. It will take the Transfiguration family to make this amazing week possible, so all help is so appreciated!!
