Kayak Trip  - August 26th

Youth Ministry sponsored a Kayaking event at Narrow River Kayaks located at 94 Middlebridge Road, Narragansett, RI 02882. The event was attended by 10 members of our Compass community.  We kayaked for a few hours to the local beach where they had a lunch on the beach and swam.  A great time was had by all.



Good Luck and our collective prayers to our members of our Compass Family who are starting or continuing their post-secondary education. They include Alexandria Beliveau, Ariana Beliveau, Adam Denault, Ailsa Ferland, Paige Gaboury, Haley Jasper, Gian Perrotta, John Perez, and Peter Offiong

We also would like to extend our thanks, prayers and support to those Compass members who will be serving in the U.S. Armed Forces this year, Joy Kowalski and Wilson Ramos.




Don’t discard those winter coats, sweatshirts or hoodies. Compass will be holding our annual drive starting in October. These items bring some comfort and warmth to those less fortunate.  A war, dry coat or hoosie could make the difference in one's ability to withsatnd the elments of the harsh New England Winters.
