Have your discipleship group host an evening or day of raking for the parish.  Invite parents of the members of the group along with the entire parish.  Everyone brings a rake and you can cover a 3-4 block radius around parish going to people’s houses and asking them if you can rake their yard.  Whether or not they say yes, give them a card with an invitation with Mass times and an upcoming event.  Be sure to also line up lawn bags and people to pick up the leaves from the houses you rake.


A great outreach event for the youth in groups, a great opportunity to connect with other youth and families in the parish to invite them in to what you are doing, and a great witness to the parish and community.
