May the Peace of Christ be with you. Please take just two minutes to review the following:
Habemus Papam! We live in historic times. In our prayers – both personal as well as with young people – please pray for our Holy Father Francis as well as for Benedict XVI, our Pope Emeritus.
There will be a celebration Mass with Archbishop Lori this Sunday at the Cathedral of Mary our Queen at 11am. Consider inviting young people and families to attend.
Pilgrimage The ten-day forecast (yes, we do watch that as seriously as the conclave chimney pipe!) for the Archbishop’s Youth and Young Adult Pilgrimage is calling for a minimal chance of precipitation and temperatures in the 60’s. Looking forward to walking with you and the youngchurch the weekend after this one!
ReBuid My Church The on-line youth ministry conference runs live both today (Thursday) at 1:30 and tonight at 8:30. Best news of all is it costs you nothing and there is no commute.
Mid-Atlantic Thanks The Catholic Review offered a recap of last weekend’s conference. Thanks and many blessings to the youth and campus ministry folks who vitally played a role with the making the conference happen.
Hyperlinks to Use: Lots of folks are quickly doing research on our new pope, trying to understand his background more and how that might impact our future… Here’s one take on all that.
