Original Invitation

Woohoo!   The Catholic Gators are coming!!! All youth, 7th graders through high school seniors are enthusiastically invited to spend the day November 5th 10am-5pm with our Catholic GATORS. Of course everyone is also welcome to attend the 5pm Mass. Please, encourage your teen to participate. RSVP replies to this email are deeply appreciated.
Here is a copy of their invitation:

My name is Anna Gugliemino, and Iím the campus ministry assistant for the Catholic Gators at the University of Florida. I wanted to write to invite all of the middle and high school youth at St. Madeleineís to come out on November 5th for a day-long retreat hosted by a group of college students from Catholic Gators called the Parish Evangelization Team (PET for short). The theme of the retreat is ďJesus, I Trust in YouĒ and itís going to be a day full of talks, food, games, small groups, praise and worship, and so much more! It starts at 10am and ends with the vigil Mass at 5pm.
Some of you might already be hooked and ready to show up, and thatís awesome! But for those of you that arenít, I genuinely encourage you to come! This day will be an amazing chance to explore your faith, find answers for your questions, and see that you really can be Catholic in a world thatís constantly telling us otherwise. And at the very least, itís a day-long excuse to not think about school!
We would love the chance to get to know each and every one of you, and I hope that we will see you there! Weíre praying for you already!

God bless,

The Parish Evangelization Team"

With the joy of Christ Jesus,
Sussette Webster
