BACK TO SCHOOL

The larger the island of knowledge,
the longer the shoreline of wonder.

Our prayers are with all teachers and students as they return to school in pursuit of longer shorelines of wonder.

YOUTH RALLY AND MASS FOR LIFE
Please review the process for requesting tickets for the DC events that is on January 25 as well as noting the events in Arlington.

PARENT/FAMILY NEWS
> Please be advised that another edition of our parent e-newsletter, which is designed for you to add additional information and use as your own publication, will be released next Thursday.

> The Search Institute has long been a leader in identifying assets which advance the development and health of young people. They have just released their American Family Assets Study which identifies 21 unique family assets… The more a family has, the more likely family members display healthy behaviors and express higher satisfaction within their family dynamic. See this introduction, and then check out the definition of the assets and review this discussion guide.

D. Scott Miller

D. Scott Miller is the dean of Catholic Youth Ministry bloggers which is a polite way of either saying that he is just plain old or has been blogging for a long time (since 2004.)

Scott recently married the lovely Anne and together they have five adult young people and also grandparent three delightful kids (so, maybe he is just plain old!) Scott presently serves at Saint John the Evangelist in Columbia, MD as the director of youth and young adult ministry.

He has previously served on the parish, regional, diocesan, and national levels as well as having taught within a catholic high school. He is one of the founders of RebuildMyChurch and has returned to posting regularly (keeping regular is important to old guys) at ProjectYM.
