Dear Youth in Christ,
All of creation is waiting in great anticipation of all the beauty that Spring holds. We too have this longing inside for a blooming and a becoming, as the season invites us to change and a enter into a new of being. It is in this blossoming that you are invited, especially during this time of lent to be open to a newness through engaging in our March youth activities.
The Confirmation class will kick off the month through meeting at the Church during the normal class time, 7:00 p.m. to practice for the “shadow stations”. Please bring your books as we will go through the lesson and then practice the stations. This activity is a great way in engaging in the walk with Christ to the cross and into the hope of the resurrection. Please show up at St. Mary’s Church at 7:00 p.m. instead of the CEC building.
