Fundraiser set for St. Peter teen youth mission trip

By on January 26, 2012

GENEVA—Bring a hungry appetite to the Knights of Columbus hall on Thursday, Jan. 26, to help raise funds for St. Peter Youth Ministry’s high school spring mission trip. Teens and their mentors will serve all the delicious spaghetti, salad, bread and dessert you can eat.

Dinner will be served from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall (Riverview Banquets and Catering), 1117 N. Washington Ave., Batavia.

Tickets are $10 for those 10 years of age and older, $5 for children 3 to 9 years old, and free for children 2 and younger.

Last year, teens of St. Peter Church in Geneva spent their spring break doing mission work in Mingo County in West Virginia. They worked with school children, helped move and organize furniture to be given away, painted a house for a woman who taught school into her 80s, helped write thank you notes to kind donors who contributed to the helping organizations, did indoor cleaning of buildings, and performed a myriad of other service projects. The group worked through the Christian Help and the A.B.L.E. Families, who work to serve the needs in the area. In 2012 during spring break, another group of St. Peter Church high school youth ministry group will head south to Vanceburg, Ken., to lend helping hands and hearts.

Tickets for the dinner can be purchased at the St. Peter Parish Center, 1891 Kaneville Road, Geneva, from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Call (630) 232-9026 or e-mail
