World Youth Day Bulletin Needs Your Input

Calling all St. Thomas young people…

We would like your creativity to grace our bulletin for World Youth Day weekend, October 26-27. You can submit an original artistic design (picture, word art, etc.) or something in writing (an original poem, your own prayer, etc.) for the bulletin. From the submissions, one will be displayed on the bulletin cover, and as many as possible will be featured throughout the bulletin. However, ALL submissions will be displayed in the Gathering Area the weekend of October 26-27 as a way of celebrating the gifts of our young people.

To submit your creation:

1. Think about how much God loves you and the many ways you show God’s love to others. Or, you can reflect on the Gospel reading for World Youth Day weekend (Luke 18:9-14). How can you show that in your picture or in your writing?

2. Once you have an idea, use an 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of white paper for your submission (and one submission per person, please). Be sure to include your name and age in the bottom right-hand corner of your original ‘masterpiece’! Submitting your ‘masterpiece’ in black and white will make it easier to print in the bulletin. However, colorful artwork will be wonderful for the Gathering Area display.

3. Submit your ‘masterpiece’ to the Religious Education office by Sunday, October 20.
