Youth Ministry Newsletter

August is here and would you believe that the current Youth Ministry has been going strong for six months?  I can’t believe how fast time has gone!  We have really done some great stuff this summer and I know God will continue to bless us as we grow our ministry.  With school starting, we will begin a rotating schedule of events to keep things consistent during the school year and to help us better serve you, our parish and the community.

  • Moving forward into the fall, the first Sunday of the month we will show  films. This fall, the films will focus on  social justice, martyrs and faith .
  • The Second Sunday will be for prayer and scripture.
  • The third Sunday for service
  • The 4th Sunday will be for High School age students only (small faith group, activities etc.)
  • On months when there is a 5th Sunday we will return to the Humane Society to volunteer.
  • Information for these things will be detailed individually in the newsletter and on our calendar.
  • Of course I always welcome feedback and ideas from you!  This is YOUR ministry and I want to hear what you need from me and/or your parish to help you grow as disciples of Jesus.
  • For those of you reading this who haven’t come to ChrisTeens Youth Ministry yet, please take a look at our calendar!  Pick a Sunday to join us and be a part of this growing ministry!  All Are Welcome!
  • Also, We are beginning our fundraising efforts to send youth to the Nation Catholic Youth Conference.  We have 4 youth currently committed to going.  Ashlee Velasquez, Bianca Reyes, Isabella Bennett,  Elizabeth Ladnier and a chaperone.  The cost is $495 per person plus meals.  We are hoping to raise $3000 to cover all costs.
  • We will begin with hosting Coffee & Donuts on August 13th.  All donations will go to NCYC trip fund.
  • We are also going to be selling t-shirts.  These shirts will have the name of our church on the front and scripture on the back.  They will be available in English and Spanish.
  • On September 10th we will be hosting a pancake breakfast for the entire parish.
