Hard to believe the YAG is only one month out – if you haven’t registered yet or know of friends who might be interested in coming, make sure you sign yourselves up pronto!
Registration will close at the end of the day on Sunday July 2 so at that point you will have to wait until next year. You snooze, you lose!
If it works out that you absolutely cannot make it to the YAG in person due to insane distances (aka Europe or Australia), evil work or school schedules, financial difficulty, or that you broke your leg when you were run over by a bus, you can send a photo of yourself along with some basic introductory info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This option is FREE.
We will have a board for absentee folks and the regular attendees will be able to get in touch with you and vice versa, but only if you meet the criteria. Here’s roughly how it will work:
Parish: St. Whoever’s in Anywhere, USA
Pastor: Fr. John Doe
Valid Excuse for Non-Attendance: I’m stone broke and unemployed.
I’m a boring person who has no life, no hobbies, and no way do I want to meet any of you. I have no interests, no siblings, and no sense of humor. I’m a convert from the Novus Ordo but I want to get married soon and have 12 children at least.
Criteria for Absentees
Photo Specs: Must be good enough quality to print as either a 4 x 6 or a 5 x 7. A selfie is okay but not great unless it’s a REALLY good selfie!
Excuse must be Valid: “I have military duty this weekend” is legit. “I’m too shy” is baloney.
Age: Must be provided.
Contact Info: Must provide at least a valid phone number and email address. Your parish and regular/mission priest’s name must also be given, unless you have no Mass center. In that case, explain – SGG webcast Masses, etc.
