LumenLogo contest winner & December 22nd Christmas Caroling


This is our NEW Lumen Logo!!!!!

Thanks so much to Angie Cowan and the social media committee for sponsoring the design contest! And thanks to all 4 kids who submitted designs! AND….the winner who created this AWESOME design is……our very own 7th grade Lumen member Christian Cohan! Congrats to Christian! Enjoy your $25 Chick-Fil-A gift card!


Look for this logo in the bulletin and on St. Clare social media for all things Lumen related. This will be the newest, easiest way to recognize announcements pertaining to our group! Thank you, Christian for an awesome design!


Mark December 22 on your calendar! It is going to be filled with caroling, probably to some of our parish shut-ins! And with the amazing Marianne Gregory on the trumpet, too!! Yay! I’m so excited!!!

AND….we are starting an AWESOME new series with the kids called “Altaration.” We are SO excited to share this program with the kids—see the trailer video here:  I get so excited every time I watch—I think the kids are going to love it and hopefully it will help them connect with mass in a more meaningful way!

I’ll be in touch soon to get host families on the schedule for the new year and start booking dates for the first quarter of 2018!

See you all soon—have a wonderful, blessed Advent and Christmas season!  As always—if you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know!

PS—The Follis and Hackworth families delivered the Thanksgiving basket goods we collected to a sweet lady in our Acworth community. She was moved to tears and very appreciative, and she texted me afterward to tell me how much she loved everyone’s cards. Thanks to all who contributed to the collection of the food, cards and delivering of the basket. It was a great way for our group to show God’s love to a member of our community!
