Please check your inbox and RSVP to attend your regional E&C meetings. Remember to read Eric Sammon's article, "The Heresy of Low Expectations." Don't worry, it's pretty short ;-) See you soon!
CCF Spiritual Impact Forum - Millenials
Deacon Mike recently attended a Catholic Community Foundation forum focusing on Millenials. Download his notes by clicking the button below. This would be a good topic of conversation at our upcoming E&C meetings as well. Perhaps those of us who can sing the Fresh Prince theme song by heart could give some insight about this age group as well!
The Broom Tree Retreat was a great success! The youth had not only a restful, but a profound retreat experience. I was encouraged by the concrete resolutions that came from the retreat: going to daily Mass, deleting apps from phones because they get in the way of prayer, praying a daily Rosary, and many many more great resolutions to live more for Jesus. If you are interested in accompanying a group of youth to next year's retreat, please talk to me (Kevin). Every evening provides an opportunity for adult leaders to meet with the youth from their parish, allowing for fruitful conversations about faith and discipleship.
Space is filling up for Totus Tuus this summer, but there is still room to sign up to host a team! You can find more information here.
