Challenge Girls Volunteer at Kansas Food Bank

On Easter Monday, our CHALLENGE girls gave up a morning of sleeping in on their day off from school to help the poor. Our club assisted the Kansas Foodbank Warehouse with unloading 3 pallets of food into 6 pallets of 12 tubs each . The tubs of food will then be used to fill backpacks for hungry children in our public school system. The backpacks are sent home with children that teachers identify as being in need of food at their homes for the weekend. CHALLENGE girls are awesome! Thank you for your gift of service.

Challenge Modesty Talk

CHALLENGE (R) MODESTY TALK - Friday, February 5, 2016

We had a wonderful turn out of 40 youth from Resurrection and Blessed Sacrament Challenge Clubs for the pizza and Modesty Talk last Friday.

Once again, we were so impressed with the young men that came and spoke with our 7th and 8th grade teams. The speakers requested to give their talks in the sanctuary and it was the perfect setting. The young men spoke often of the girls as 'daughters of the King'. What better place to hear this than in our Lord's house.

Two Modesty handouts are listed in the document files on this page. Both the song and the modesty guidelines were created by former Challenge mothers and used as handouts for past Challenge fashion shows.

Thank you to our Team Leaders for choosing such fine young men to share their views on modesty with our daughters.

2016 Challenge Skating Party Fun Night

Our CHALLENGE girls had a Fun Night on Friday, Jan. 15th at the Ice Skate Center. Over 25 girls were in attendance and they definitely had fun. Some of the photos might be a bit out of focus but we couldn't resist posting some adorable shots.

2015 Challenge Christmas Caroling

Challenge continued our tradition of caroling to College Hill homebound again this year. We had 21 girls attend from our Resurrection Club and then we joined with the Blessed Sacrament Club. We began with a circle of introductions and prayers for the homebound parishioners. The girls' sweet voices were very appreciated by those we visited.

2015-2016 Challenge Girls First Meeting

We began our first meeting of the year with a group sing along of Matt Maher's "Lord, I Need You", some fun circle activities and then we were able to listen to some wonderful talks on virtue by our team leaders.  What a great way to start our year together!  Go Challenge!!!
