|March events for Tri-Parish Youth
Dear Youth in Christ,
The call to surrender, prayer, and joyful sacrifice is the theme for the month of March. This season of Lent gives us a chance to respond with intentionality to our God who so graciously gives of himself daily. As a young person this beautiful season is an invitation to grow in faith and action through opportunities provided throughout the parish community. Look and see what God may be calling you to do this Lent and respond with a “yes” as you move closer to him over these 4o days.
