Thank you to the students who came to the “inaugural” (course-setting) Youth Ministry Meeting! The excitement and anticipation were great, plans were made, a course was set, and we’re sailing! (and the pizza was good, too!) See you May 29, with friends! God bless and protect you!

We have a meeting tonight (sorry about the short notice!) in the Tipitina’s area upstairs at 6pm for those interested in Youth Ministry. It’s mostly a discussion of where we want to go, and how we might get there! We would love to see you!

I got a call from Erica Asso over at San Juan Bautista about a bowling party that their youth group is having right here at St. Joseph Catholic Club. Youth from St. Mary’s will also be there. Anyone from St. Joseph who is high-school age has been invited, out of their hospitality. Please see the flyer…

There are plans in the works to get together in April for an evening of connecting, reflection, food, and ideas about where we want to go with Youth Ministry in the near future–especially over the summer. Details will be announced. The gathering is likely to be a Sunday evening. Thank you to those of you who have really been pushing to get this going!
