On behalf of the United YMS of R, along with the parishes from Dickson City, Dupont, Duryea and Scranton, we would like to invite you participate in the 73rd Annual YMS of R / PNCC Bowling Tournament. We are excited to be hosting this year’s tournament.  We look forward to reuniting with old friends and making new ones.  This event is one of the longest running events in our church and we are blessed that we are able to host the event.  This year, we are combining efforts with parishioners from Dickson City, Dupont, Duryea, Scranton and parishioners throughout the Central Diocese. We are making plans to utilize the scenic and beautiful Bishop Hodur Retreat and Recreation Center as our tournament headquarters.  So, save the dates of June 8th, 9th and 10th and come to the Bowling Tournament. We hope to see bowlers and non-bowlers who want to come out for a summer startup vacation and anyone else who is looking for a fun and spiritual weekend. Respectfully, Nick Kazinetz, Andrew Humphreys, Art Golembeski Jr. Any questions, please email me at artbowl@msn.com or call at 570-575-5231. Participation forms are in the vestibule.
