Dear Youth in Christ
As one season turns into another we reflect on the blessings both past and present. It’s a time to be grateful for all that God has given us. Our response is important; therefore you are invited to join us this month in our November youth activities as we focus on being thankful through prayer, fun, retreat, service, catechesis, and socials. We always look forward to seeing what God has in store for us we come together to celebrate who we are as a young church.
