YouthServe - February 15th and 16th 2019
Gave the kids a fun, faith-filled way to explore your important role in making this a better world;
gave an opportunity to look beyond their own experiences and reach out to others
helped to learn that we are always to reach out to the most vulnerable among us
and discover that we all have great power, through God, to love others and experience love

PLAYED BOX TAG WITH
OLD FRIENDS . . .
MADE NEW FRIENDS . . .

We prepared for the Outdoor Youth Rosary behind the hall

The year started with lots of glow-in-the-dark fun and exploring how we think God sees us.
