CCD stuff

For those of my readers who are NOT in my CCD class this year, feel free to skip this post.


Service Hours:

If you need to catch up on your service hours here are two things:

MAGIS is the "more" that St. Ignatius, the founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), stressed from his followers and students. For us, MAGIS is an acronym for Making A Gift In Service.
New MAGIS Project on April 1, 2006.

Painting and Restoration at Gesu Church in Downtown Miami

Join the MAGIS Mob from 10 AM to 4 PM helping clean and paint the lower portion of the outside facade at the Church. All supplies and lunch will be provided.

Do your part to beautify one of the Church's true treasures in Downtown. For information contact MAGIS at or at 3O5.86O.O9OO. (The contact person is A l e j a n d r o M a d e r a l)

For more information on Gesu click:, the address is 118 NE 2nd St, Miami, 33132 - 3O5.379.1424 (the Pastor is Fr. Eduardo Alvarez, SJ)

Please pass this along to anyone with students who might want the opportunity to rack up service hours. If anyone needs a "reference" let them know to use my name--Jose (or Joe) Garcia, Belen class of 1981--for this.


On Holy Saturday (04/15/05), there will be a pre-Easter cleanup of "our" Church. Please contact the CCD office 3O5.44 6. 56 88 and when you hit the menu push #1 for the C CD office or #214 for Sr. R's office, to get more details. Figure that you'll get 4-6 service hours therefor. Mr. Soli man will be in charge, so you may get his contact info from the CCD office or from me. (He hasn't given permission for me to post his information for the WHOLE BLOODY INTERNET to see.

Remember you need FORTY FIVE (45) documented service hours for confirmation. NOT 44 hours. If you don't have the full 45 hours, I'll see you next year. You know who you are.

And, López, do not forget that report next Monday.
