Youth October activities
As the days grow shorter and the leaves speak their change of color, we start to see and feel a difference around us. It is in this spirit of change we invite the youth of our parishes and communities into the dance of transformation through engaging in the opportunities in our October youth ministry process. It is only through an open response that change can come about!
