608 DAYS until WORLD YOUTH DAY 2016 KRAKOW
Our next fundraising event for World Youth Day will be at the Christmas Stroll
on Friday, Nov 28. The students and chaperones will be offering “a taco in a bag”
and a drink for $5. Please plan to stop by, the table will be located by the PO News.
The Knights of Columbus and the CCW will also have a table at this location and
will have chili, soups and gift baskets available for sale. Proceeds from the chili and
soups sold will also go toward World Youth Day. Thank you for your support!
YDisciple: Youth Ministry
For our teens in grades 8-12 we have begun a program called YDisciple.
The “Y” stands for youth and this is a process in which we are
teaching our youth to be Disciples of Jesus Christ. As recom-
mended by the teachers/developers of YDisicple at the Augustine
Institute in Denver, we began with a very small core group.
It’s going very well and our groups are growing as teens
currently participating continue to invite friends to join their
small groups. This is the way Jesus did it, mentoring to a
small group of people who then went out to share their faith and
spread the Word. The small groups work best if member size stays
between 6-8 teens. Each group is led by two faith-filled adults from our
parish. We invite all teens to participate and are also looking for adults who feel they
would like the role of an adult leader for one of the small groups.
Groups meet once a week at a time that works well for all.
For more information go to ydisciple.org to learn how
this program can change the lives of our teens.
To participate, contact Stacy Preszler at 751-4922.
This trip is scheduled for July 18-Aug 3 2016 and will include experiences in
Lithuania, Auschwitz, Krakow and other areas of interest. The cost is $4595
per person and we currently have 2 students signed up to go.

Young Adults Participate in Mass
Thank you to all our young adults who have been participating in the Sunday 5:30PM Mass! All youth are invited to participate. There are many different ways to be involved: altar serving, presentation of the gifts, ushers, greeters, singers, and lectors. We would like this particular Mass to have as much youth participation as possible, starting with the elementary children all the way up to our teens. Altar serving and lectoring require special training, however for the other duties it’s just a matter of wanting to be involved. Any youth interested in singing can meet by the choir area after religious education classes. For children not attending religious ed classes, there will be a practice every Sunday at 4:45PM. Familiar songs will be chosen so the students who are not able to be at the full practice time can still participate in the choir. Please contact Stacy Preszler at 751-4922 with any questions, concerns, or ideas. Thank you!
