youth activities for January
Dear Youth in Christ,
As we enter into a new year the youth of our communities are invited to join us as we grow and learn about our Catholic faith. We will be planning for our mission trip, preparing for the Idaho Catholic Youth Convention, facilitating a faith night and social opportunity for the Junior High youth, celebrating a Youth Mass, engaging in a local retreat, and learning through prayer, fun, and education in small and large group activities. Please come and see where God may be calling you this year. You may be surprised!
