What I am looking forward to this month is our youth confirmation outreach project. Last spring, the youth confirmation class had a pancake breakfast to benefit the Fuse Project. That event was a success, thanks to all of you in the Cathedral Family. This year the youth confirmands want to help the young men of the Kappa League by having a brunch following the church service on October 18. The Kappa League is a group that helps approximately eighty Mobile County African–American young men develop life skills so they can become “successful gifts to the world.” Their website www.mobilekappaleague.org tells the whole story. The goal of our youth project is to raise funds for the Kappa League members to prepare for and take college entrance exams such as the ACT and SAT. The Cathedral’s own, Carl Cunningham, Jr., works with these young men. The stories that he has related are amazing. I hope that you will get to hear some of the stories and spend some time with these young men on October 18.
I hope that some of our junior and senior high students will ask you all to support this event by purchasing $8 tickets. They will be out at church making sales. They will also be the ones serving that Sunday. Sponsorships are available, and if you are interested in supporting in that capacity, please contact me at your convenience.
Have a great October everyone, and I will see you at church!
