Recently, Pope Benedict released a Message of His Holiness Benedict XVI for the Twenty-Eighth World Youth Day which will occur during this upcoming summer.
Our second Annual John Bosco Day will occur January 31, Father James Greenfield will facilitate conversation regarding Doing Youth Ministry Like a Saint as well as addressing some of the Healthy Tensions in our ministry. The day runs from 9:30 to 2:45 at St. Michael, Mt. Airy.
We have not yet received tickets from Washington DC, but have obtained reservations on 1300 tickets. If you would like tickets to the Youth Rally and Mass for Life, you can still contact the office, but we will be placing you on a waiting list. If you have tickets reserved, but do not believe you will be able to use all of them, please let our office know so these seats do not go un-used.
IN THE NEW YEAR:
► Following his own advice about reaching out to the "digital continent" in his WYD Message mentioned above, the Pope showed up on Twitter yesterday!
►The NCCYM conference is over, but hand-outs and powerpoints can be found attached to the workshop listings. (Look through all the sessions) Also, Popple did a great job of mashing-up sacred and secular music.
Our offices will be closed throughout the entire week of Christmas and will reopen on January 2. Please have a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year celebration.
