All students are encouraged to attend the Sunday, August 29, 2021, Teen Summer Mass at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral. The monthly themed Mass, at 11 a.m., is followed by food, fellowship, and fun in the cathedral’s plaza.
Senior Anthony Schena, Jr., who spearheaded the effort to create a monthly teen Mass, said participation has grown, and he is seeing “more youth than I am used to seeing at Masses.”
Attendants are encouraged to bring a donation of canned goods to benefit local food pantries, and to dress in the day’s theme: Detroit Sports teams.
Students should RSVP to Schena at firstname.lastname@example.org
Schena notes the Tigers have a home game Sunday afternoon to round out the day in the downtown Detroit area.
Various companies have sponsored the summer events, including Schena Roofing and Young Catholic Professionals. One of the sponsors for the August 29 event is the Star of the Sea Knights of Columbus.
