Hi everyone! For those of you who have been checking this blog, I apologize for the time delay in my posting for the month of April. Moving forward, I will be updating this blog much more regularly, so please pay attention to it for the most up to date information and announcements regarding Youth Ministry here at St. Bonaventure.

Important Updates: 

The elementary school drop in (Grade's 6-8)program has been a huge success so far and I hope to continue to see it grow as we move towards the end of the school year and into the summer. As the weather gets better I hope to move towards mixing in some outdoor activities in addition to the current indoor ones. Also, as the numbers for this drop in continue to grow I will be requiring more and more volunteers to assist me with set up and execution of activities. If you are a parent reading this and would be wiling to assist me please send me an email: pdosman@st-bonaventure.ca where I can begin the volunteer process. In addition, if you have any teenage children in high school who are looking for some volunteer hours, this drop in or assisting me with some of my Saturday events, would be a great way to satisfy that requirement.

The high school drop in program is not doing so great. I have had a few people interested in it, but have not had anything materialize really in the last four weeks running it. I am hoping to garner some more attraction in the coming weeks by going into a few high schools and speaking to some of the students there. This drop in program runs from 1pm to 2:15pm immediately following the 12pm mass on Sundays. It will be running this weekend for sure, so if you are interested please come check it out!

Well, thats it for updates for now, but please check the blog regularly as I will be updating it frequently in future!

God Bless,

Pete!

Introduction:
Hi eveyone! Some of you in the Parish may know me already, and some of you may not have met me. My name is Peter Dosman and I am the Youth Animator at St. Bonaventure Parish, I have been in this role since April 2016.
I grew up as member of the Parish, having received all of my sacraments here, as well as having attended elementary school at St. Bonaventure’s too. I left in Grade 6 to attend St. Michael’s College School and graduated from there in 2009. I was a member of various sports teams and clubs while in high school and regularly attended the lunch mass at least once a week.
After graduating in 2009, I went off to the University of Ottawa knowing I wanted to pursue a career in education. I graduated in 2013 with my undergrad, and was accepted to Niagara University in Ontario. I began teachers college there within a few months of graduating from Ottawa U. I finished up my B.P.S. (Bachelor of Professional Studies, equivalent to a B.Ed.), graduating January, 2015. Sinc…

Hi Everyone! I Hope you all have had a fabulous week so far and have been enjoying the last few days or Mother Mary's month of May. With June right around the corner, and the St. Bonaventure Baseball League's annual BBQ and Finals Day coming up on the 24th, I would like to have some of the Youth Group be present at the BBQ with me. I think it would be great if we could have some t-shirts made up to represent our group. So this week, we will be spending some time designing logo's in the first hour of the drop in before we go outside to play any sports or setting up any activities inside. I look forward to seeing all of you on Friday after school!
