The Churches of St. Joseph & St. Stephen the King

The Churches of St. Joseph & St. Stephen the King donated $50 and 300 swag bag gifts to the OHS Post-Prom Party planned by the S.A.D.D. Club. It is expected that approximately 300 students will attend the event during the early hours of Sunday, May 20, at the Lighthouse Lanes. Cosmic bowling along with other activities such as a prize room, inflatables, a video game trailer, karaoke, henna tattoos, food and beverage stations, and more will be offered at the party! The goal is to provide a safe, substance-free and fun environment for the prom goers. The St. Joseph's Church rectory staff along with Megan Vivlemore designed, purchased, and assembled the gifts to be included in a swag bag, one for each student. Each plastic bag included a business card advertising church Mass times with inspirational Bible verses on the back side and an LED finger light with cross imprint... sure to be a hit under the cosmic bowling black lights! ...
