Fr. Joseph Purpura, Chair of the Department of Youth Ministry, reports that through the diligent efforts of SOYO members, nearly $33,000.00 has been collected since October for the Special Olympics Sports Camp at Antiochian Village. Every summer, hundreds of Special Olympic campers and SOYO counselors convene for a unique week of activity and growth.
Fr. Joseph notes, "We are very grateful to the many parishes that have contributed to the NAC SOYO / PASO Special Olympics. Browse the list of contributions here . If your parish is missing from this first list and is on the second list, please ask your parish treasurer to send in a check for the money they collected on the third Sunday of October for Special Olympics.
Additionally, SOYO teens are also encouraging individuals to donate as well.
Checks may be made out to "NAC SOYO Special Olympics" and mailed to:
