OPEN TO LIGHT
to Seminarians at World Youth Day
August 20, 2011
As we enter into the interview stages for our next coordinator for young adult ministry and Hispanic youth ministry, may we all take a moment to pray for discernment of the Spirit’s will not only in the office but within our own lives as well.
> Our Youth Contact meetings are set for September 8 and 15. Please remember that you are strongly encouraged to bring your core team adults and young adults (no high school teens, however) It is our goal to have the Youth Contact serve as the curator of the experience for their team. Towards that end, we will be releasing information in advance to begin to prepare you for this experience. Check out an outline of the core presentations of the day.
St Louis CYM and the ACTS Ministry at St. Louis are co-sponsoring a youth retreat this August 2-5, called Teen ACTS (Adoration, Community, Theology, Service). It is geared it toward our post-Confirmation young people. For more info, contact Maggie.
> Registration information is now available here.
