Sunday Night Live is an evening of fun and faith for middle school students,
held every other week, this summer at St. Dominic parish. We’ll begin in the
PAAC, before heading outside to play an active, fun game like kickball,
polish baseball, kick the can, or water-balloon toss. Then, we’ll move back
inside and have popsicles or ice cream to cool off, while listening to and
discussing the Sunday Gospel reading for 20 minutes. All current incoming
6th through graduating 8th graders can attend. Upcoming Dates: June 11 & 25,
July 9 & 23, August 6 & 20.
