GOD SQUAD 2015: A WORD FROM CARL BARNES, YOUTH MINISTER

Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

AND NOW A WORD FROM CARL BARNES OF THE HOLY NAME OF MARY'S GOD SQUAD:


The mission of God Squad is to offer our young adults fulfillment in the areas of spirituality, continued education of their faith and community service. Through our outreach to the community, we have tried to evangelize various groups of people including younger children, seniors, and the homeless. Our Annual Homeless Awareness Sleep-out is now in its 11th year.

God Squad has an operating budget of approximately $10,000 that comes from the parish. This covers personnel costs for me and Lindsay, our CYFM Youth Partner. In addition, we have some incidentalexpenses associated with the events that we host. In an effort to be self-sustaining, we were able to raise approximately $6,000 of our operating budget through our annual appeal last year. I am askingfor your financial support so that we can continue to offset the youth ministry’s expense to the parish.

We do this rather than charge a fee for the teens to participate in God Squad. If you would like to make a contribution, you may do so by writing a check to Name of Mary, marked “God Squad”, and drop your donation at the Parish Office Center, Monday–Friday between the hours of 9:00am - 5:00pm.
