This year we are celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Scripture Safari, and we are inviting all adults who have gone on Safari, and those who have never gone before, to go on Safari with us! We will be offering several opportunities for YOU to connect to Safari through social media and service opportunities.
1) A daily newsletter will be e-mailed to participants and parents. It will contain the daily scriptures, reflections, and home connections as well as reminders. This newsletter will be available on our parish Facebook page and website (www.josephraphael.org).
2) We will be sharing photos and memories of past Safaris on both the Facebook page and website. You are encouraged to share your own photos and memories.
3) On Wednesday, July 13, the 4th, 5th, and 6th graders and Safari Gold will be preparing a meal for the Springfield Soup Kitchen, and Safari Gold and teen helpers will be serving the meal at the soup kitchen that evening. Because the time for the kids to cook is limited, YOU are needed to prepare dessert. Bake your favorite pie or summer cobbler (in a disposable pan) and drop it off at the parish office between 8:00-4:00 on Wednesday. Many pies are needed to serve 200 people. Can’t bake? Donate a tub of vanilla ice cream to go with the pie.
4) Look for other opportunities to connect to Safari in the bulletin and on our Facebook page and website.
