Churches reach out to youth and communities for Halloween
Welcoming each other with God’s love… through crafts, candy, and costumes! That was the scene around the Diocese in the last few weeks, all in celebration of the kid favorite holiday, Halloween!
As we go into Convention weekend, let us take with us these pictures of family and parish fun, youth, and outreach and remember the many reasons why we are Christians. Spreading the Gospel and the love of Jesus happens in many ways. This last month it just so happens that it was delivered with lots of sugar!
In the above photo, members of St. Paul’s, Endicott opened their doors and served treats to 130 goblins in the community around their church.
Below, parishioners at St. Paul’s in Owego put on a Halloween Spooktacular on Saturday, October 28th. It was a free and open event for the community that had 60 people participate. A great fun time was had by all with crafts, costumes, and games!
The week before Halloween, St. Matthew’s Liverpool celebrated with a coffee hour Halloween bash! Lunch was served and the treats were plenty. The kids had a great time wearing their costumes to church and playing games afterwards.
