Ministry Activities for July
July brings with it barbeques, family vacations and lazy days in the sun. It also invites us to reflect on God’s presence through the use of our time. It’s here that all youth are encouraged to grow in faith through an invitation to join us in the Tri-Parish youth activities for July.
