October 18, 2012 Vol. 1, No. 13

In this edition, you are invited to take just two minutes: -> to catch the bullying webinar today! -> to learn of young stars in our midst -> to check on some upcoming events -> to check out hyperlinks

Bullying builds character like nuclear waste creates superheroes.
It’s a rare occurrence and often does much more damage than endowment.

Zack W. Van

Today is our first scheduled webinar. Dr. John Mojzisek will be leading us on Pastoral Care Regarding Bullies, Bystanders, & Victims at 12:30 — 1:30 pm for this live on-line training. RSVP to clip_image004Susan Smith for the access codes if you want to join us.

NCYC’S GOT TALENT
Today is the release date of NCYC’S Top Talent volume one. The album features Catholic young people singing of their faith. It includes the ArchBalt’s own Jourdan Richard (Mathias Michael, winner of last year’s competition and now a student at the Mount is also featured!)

-> There will be an Evangelization Department Resource Day on Living the Eucharist on October 29 at St. Pius X, Baltimore from 10:00am – 12:00pm and St. Joseph-on-Carrollton Manor from 2:00 – 4:00pm
-> There are some upcoming Year of Faith Study Days available to you. Catechism of the Catholic Church (Part 1) on Creed and Sacraments will be October 31 at St. Mary Seminary and November 13 at Mt. Saint Mary. Catechism of the Catholic Church (Part 2) on Moral Life and Prayer on November 28 at St. Mary Seminary and December 4 at Mt. Saint Mary. Contact Dr. Lauri Przybysz for more info.

HYPERLINKS WORTH CHECKING
-> The Synod on the New Evangelization continues in Rome. Cardinal Wuerl, yesterday, offered this report synopsizing the questions being posed after the early days’ worth of interventions from the Synol members.

-> On September 25th, we held our first ever Catholic High School Conference on the New Evangelization. Elements from the day are now available on-line.
-> Mark Oestricher recently asked youth ministers how they understood their ministry. It’s a good question and he really contextualizes the question.

If we had an album of ArchBalt’s Got Talent, it would celebrate all the harmonizing already occurring across the Premier See. Keep singing the songs of young people and faith (even if they do involve hand-motions!)
