May the peace of Christ be with you.
We are quickly running out of ordinary time. As we come to our First Sunday of Advent, we are reminded that The days are coming, says the LORD, when I will fulfill the promise. We are encouraged to Be vigilant at all times and pray that you have the strength.
We provide this series so that our ministry might be informed by the signs of our times. It has been a few weeks since our last post in this series, but we are back to providing this weekly series of Catholic youth ministry hyperlinks for you just In Case You Missed It. We resume our Thursday schedule next week.
