Trunk or Treating Sign Up


SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2016 between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. in St. Mary, Cause of Our Joy Parking Lot! We would like to invite your family to dress up and join us for some ghoulish games, freaky fun, and frightening good food.

What is Trunk-or-Treat?

Trunk-or-Treat is a fun-for-the-whole family Halloween Alternative Event. Families are invited to come to the parish parking lot between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 29th with your children to trick-or-treat. Our wonderful parishioners will be decorating their car or van trunks and passing out treats for all the trick-or-treaters who stop by (or you can team up with other parishioners or neighbors to decorate your car).

After you trunk-or-treat, please come inside the Social Hall and participate in games and crafts and enjoy some food. There will be prizes for the best decorated trunks and children’s costumes.


Complete the form below and return it to the Parish Office or in the collection basket at the weekend Masses by October 25th. Sign up as soon as you can!!

Event is hosted by St. Mary, Cause of our Joy High School Youth Group (Teens & Parents) and Young Adults. Questions, please contact, Carol Nelius, Coordinator of Youth Ministry by e-mail at or phone: 734-765-5525 or here:
