Club: After School Program

Catholic Youth Summer Camp has quite a few full-time Damascus Missionaries! As part of their desire to work with the youth at St. Brendan they have asked to organize and lead an after-school program for Middle Schoolers.

This event will be on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 3:30 – 5 PM.

Dates: October 15, November 19, January 21, February 18, March 17 (Canceled), and April 21

All students are invited to attend. You do not have to attend St. Brendan’s school to participate! If your child will be late due to their school schedule they can still attend just email Susan Nussman.

St. Brendan students must turn in a completed Permission Form to attend. This permission form gives your child permission to attend for the whole year. St. Brendan students will meet by the front office the day of the event and we will all walk over together.


Roots 2019-2020 Printable Schedule


Adults – you are a necessary part of The Roots middle school youth ministry! Research shows that teens who had at least 5 adults invest in their life of faith, were more likely to practice their faith after High School. What if we started investing in their faith now?

  • MIDDLE SCHOOL WEEK 7:  July 19-24, 2020
  • HIGH SCHOOL WEEK 2:  June 14-19, 2020

Also, there is no discount code for camp this year either. The parish wants to focus on giving a discount for families with a greater need. If a family has financial hardship they may apply directly to Fr. Bob for financial support to attend camp. You can either e-mail Fr Bob before October 1 so that the discount is applied before you register, or contact him after registration for assistance.

CYSC is offering a “Winter Camp”. Spots are limited and the middle school weekend of Winter Camp is January 17-19. Follow this link  to find out more information.
