UPGRADE is a simple lifestyle change that can have lasting health benefits through healthy eating and active living (HEAL) by connecting the church and individuals to the community.
We will be offering a 9-week session on simple lifestyles changes beginning Sunday, January 21 following the 10:30 am Mass in the Father Niehaus Room. Here is an overview of the lessons:

It is strongly encouraged that you attend all sessions as each session builds upon the previous week. Each week we will be giving away incentives for each participant: dry and liquid measuring cups, measuring spoons, shopping pad, cutting boards, water bottles, and after the program is complete a cookbook. Door prizes will be each week: homemade microwave zappers, bowl pot holders, and coasters. If you attend the first three sessions, your name will be put in a drawer for a bigger incentive during weeks four through 8 such as a blender, mixer, etc.
It is not too late to join the program, just contact the Parish Office and join us in the Father Niehaus Room directly after 10:30 a.m. Mass.
