Fr. Wilson and Fr. Chad are challenging each other to some serious (and strenuous!) activity in an effort to raise funds to reduce costs and make scholarships available for our youth to attend impactful faith events in 2019-2020.
• Fr. Chad will be running a 10K and hopes to raise $10,000.
• Fr. Wilson will be hiking Mt. Bierstadt in Colorado and hopes to raise $15K for his 14K+ climb.
You can donate online or with a scholarship form in the Gathering Space or the Parish Office. For more information visit www.allsaintschurch.com/soles/.
