SCAVENGER HUNT DETAILS:
This year’s Faith Formation theme is Team Catholic, and we’re inviting you to kick-off the year and connect with your Catholic teammates from the past and present in this Midland-wide scavenger hunt!
HOW TO PLAY:
1) Create your team, and choose a team name!
2) Like the Blessed Sacrament Facebook page and follow Blessed Sacrament on Twitter and Instagram.
3) Each Friday, starting on August 9 and lasting five weeks, a clue will be posted on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and in the bulletin. The answer to the clue can be found on the Blessed Sacrament website and will be a location in Midland.
4) Once you find the answer to the clue, go to that location (Friday through Tuesday) and find the Team Catholic flag to collect your Team Catholic trading card. The card will give you a little history of the location, its Catholic connection, and an action to complete at the site.
5) To prove that you completed the action, post a photo of your team at the site and tag Blessed Sacrament. Don’t forget to include your team name!
6) Take your trading card home. If you are unable to post a photo to social media, you may submit your cards at the end of the hunt to prove you found each location.
All teams who are able to post a photo at a minimum of four of the five locations (or submit at least four of the five trading cards) will be eligible to win a prize!
EFPN Thanks Blessed Sacrament for Their Support of the Mobile Food Pantry
Blessed Sacrament hosted and funded a Midland County Emergency Food Pantry Network (EFPN) Mobile Food Pantry on June 19. We served 222 families. Thank you to the staff for their support and to Father Kevin for the opening prayer. Thank you to the maintenance staff who helped with set up and clean up. We are grateful to all who donated personal care items. We collected around 1000 items allowing us to give each family 4 items. We are the only mobile that provides personal care items for which the recipients are very thankful for. We appreciate very much the set up volunteers who moved over 14,000 lbs. of food from the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. Thank you to those who distributed food, pushed the carts to gather the food, loaded cars and did all the other numerous jobs needed to make this a success. Over 120 volunteers were involved in this effort. Having enough volunteers allowed us to run two lines of carts at once. The first recipients arrived the day before and spent the night in their car. Besides giving your time, you made the recipients feel very welcomed in our parish. One recipient commented that she loved the way we run our mobile. As the volunteers worked and recipients and volunteers interacted, we were reminded of the Gospel’s words “Whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do it for me”
