Summer Stretch Highlights
This program is held Wednesdays during the month of July.
Summer Stretch is an exciting summer program that combines service and fun. Our goal is to give the students a sense of service, ownership and a missionary spirit of working hard for those who are in need.
The typical day of Summer Stretch starts with Mass at 8 a.m. followed by snacks and reflection for the day. Then we begin our service which might include working at the Options for Women East, or even helping around the church or the school.
We have people in our community that are in need and we can help them. It is not hard to find those in need, but sometimes it is hard to get out of our comfortable paces and do something about it.
Summer Stretch is open to middle school and high school students. We need good high school students to be role models for the middle school kids and lead them in service and fun games. Summer Stretch ends with an all day trip to Valleyfair.
