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

It was a great feeling to help the little ones from St. Peter and St. Joseph's Children's home have some fun

The kids were cutting out angels for the angel tree in the Church foyer 

and 

learning about the Sacraments

We prepared for the Outdoor Youth Rosary behind the hall

to be held on October 29th following the 5:00 Youth Mass 

The kids are excited about participating and practiced praying the prayers of the Rosary

Then we watched a couple movies, did a craft, and and asked for intercessory prayers from the Saints since November 1 is

All Saints' Day

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

Here are a few moments from our 2017 Vacation Bible School.

dance with the videos; read the Scripture; learn about Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati;  and enjoy the pictures.
