December events for Tri-Parish Youth Group
Happy Advent! You are invited into the beautiful season of Advent where wonder and awe fill the air as preparations are made for coming of a tiny baby in a manger who will change the world. During the month of December, we will gather together to get our hearts set for the beautiful season of Christmas. I would love for you to join us as we pray, plan, write, confess, sing, decorate, learn, and celebrate.
We will start the month off with an invitation to Adoration on Friday, December 3rd at St. Mary’s Church. This time with Jesus is a perfect way to begin your Advent season, and a reminder to the Confirmation youth this is an invitation to complete your challenge points before class on Dec. 5th.
