April events for Tri-Parish Youth
This month brings with it words like, hope, salvation, resurrection, and joy. We are a hopeful people because we have a God who conquered death. We celebrate and rejoice as we gather as God’s young Church fully alive. Please join us in this month’s activities and let’s see where this risen God takes us!
We begin the month with an invitation to join in the Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter celebrations. Times and locations are in the bulletin and are posted on the Church doors. Please consider joining in this sacred journey as we too enter with Jesus in his passion and death. It is truly one of the most holy times of our Church season. May God bless you all during these holy days! Also, just a reminder that we have two teen youth, Eli and Levi Hinds coming into the Church on Holy Saturday night and as a young person I highly encourage you to attend this Mass as a means of support. Standing with them in your Catholic identity is such a gift to them as they begin to walk their Catholic journey through the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation.
No youth group during Spring Break. Please enjoy your time with friends and family!
On April 11th, the Confirmation youth will be meeting at St. Mary’s Church along with their sponsors for breakfast and class at 10:00 a.m. The breakfast will be made by the Knights of Columbus.
