IMPORTANT YOUTH MINISTRY UPDATES
Due to the guidance and most recent directives coming from the Archdiocese and the state/city surrounding the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have been required to cancel all Youth Ministry events until further notice. There are a couple of events that we are looking to reschedule, but only time will tell if we are able to reschedule them. Please be sure to check back in the bulletin and on the website for more updates. Many prayers for all those affected by the Coronavirus, both directly and indirectly. Stay safe and healthy, all!
Youth Ministry Zoom Calls
While we have had to cancel all in-person events for the remainder of the school year, we have now moved all Youth Ministry events to the Zoom Calls. These calls are strictly just for check-ins to see how everyone is doing. I don't have a specific lesson or goal of the call, other than checking in with our teens to see how they're handling the current situation. It has been so much fun to see the faces of the teens that have taken advantage of the calls so far!
Middle School - Join us every Wednesday from 3:00pm-3:30pm
High School - Join us every Thursday from 3:00pm-3:30pm.
While we don't have any updates on the date for our Rite of Confirmation, we are still in discipleship mode! We are hard at work making sure all of the candidates receive all the necessary content to be prepared to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, whenever that ends up happening. Please keep all of our candidates and catechists in your prayers during this challenging time.
