SYCAMORE--As warmer days approach, it means garage sale season is right around the corner. But you don’t have to wait for a nice day or drive all over for some good finds! Stop by St. Mary’s in Sycamore Flea Market on Saturday, April 7. Not only will you find some treasures you will be supporting a wonderful cause. Proceeds from this event will go towards St. Mary’s Youth Ministry 2018 Summer Mission trip.
“We would like to invite you to join our teens and our vendors for a day of shopping fun! The Parish Activity Center will be filled with antiques, housewares, unique gadgets, holiday decor, baked goods, and much more,” explained Carolyne Schoen, St. Mary’s Youth Minister.

About 20 students will be going to New Orleans as part of a Catholic Heart Work Camp (CHWC) in June. CHWC is an organization that offers quality service camps, serves people in need, and spiritually enriches the lives of Workcamp participants. Examples of work projects include painting, home maintenance and repairs, neighborhood revitalization, indoor/outdoor clean-up, helping with children in daycare centers for low income families, helping at centers that distribute food for the needy, and above all restoring hope to those who have none.
