Back At It!

Our Theme/Mission Codename For the Year: Conquest 2020

What is up Conquest fam!

I am writing first to say how excited the last meeting (01/18/2019) got me for the revamp we are going to accomplish this year! And secondly, I want to share some of the notes that we gathered last Friday.

Meeting Notes:

What are some of the things you (the boys) think we should do this year to get Conquest Brighton back on the map?

- Invite more friends (heavy recruiting)
- More service projects (and document)
- Skits "we loved the skits"
- "Squad Up!" (re-introducing competition is a must)
- Field trips (let's plan some)
- Life lessons/training for men (I would like to incorporate some guest speakers to come and share their lessons/stories with the boys)
- Apostalic work (let's do some)
- Restore equipment os past
- Build a zip-line
- Recruit some priests to come be a part of some meetings
- JP II tournament
- Recruit other young men/Conquest alums to help with the group
- End of Year video recap (Conquest 2020)
- Contact Conquest organization and find out where we stand

Let me know if there are any areas that interest some more than others and where you think you can be of the best assistance! I am taking ownership of the communications responsibilities so I can reach out to our Conquest Organization, find out where we stand, and I can also reach out to some priests and some potential guest speakers to plan some meetings around them in the coming months.

Hope everyone has a great start to the week and God Bless!!

Another Virtuous Meeting!

We had a lot of fun at Saint Mary in Pinckney on the evening of November 20th. The gym was abuzz with activities such as multi-ball crab soccer and accordion relays. 

The boys wrapped up the evening with marvelous skits to demonstrate their understanding of the virtue of KINDNESS.
