The Harvest Festival
On the 7th of September the members of the Fellowship combined their efforts to make the Harvest Festival Games Stall a success. Taking over the games stall as always, the youth managed to raise over Rs. 9000 from the raffle draw, Lucky-dip and other
The raffle draw was a huge success (where people
have to guess the exact number of marbles in the plastic jar) and the winner of the raffle draw was none other than Rev. Neil Van Dort himself who was the person who guessed the nearest to the exact figure (the exact number of marbles were 195 and his guess was 191). Congratulations Rev. Neil!
The girls managed to put together a 'girl's corner' where they sold jewellery and gift items. The St. Paul's Youth t-shirt was also available and many generous parishioners bought t-shirts from the stall. Those of you who would like to purchase a t-shirt please contact a youth member for further details. I would like to thank Rev. Lalith and all those who supported us in various ways to organize the games stall.
The Youth Fellowship is in the process of organizing an one-day trip for the coming month. We hope that the youth interested will join us for a day of fellowship and fun. We also intend to organize a car wash in the parish premises and to take part in the Christ Church and St. Paul's Church joint youth cricket match.
We are searching for avenues to serve God in our own parish and community and thus would be delighted to take advice given by willing parishioners whom we consider our spiritual guides. Any youth who is not a member of the St. Pauls Youth Fellowship is welcome to join us.
