See you on Monday, May 13 at the Catholic Pastoral Center (1421 6th St. N) in New Ulm! We will begin at 10am with a special program by St. Paul Evangelization Institute, followed by lunch with Bishop LeVoir. Please RSVP to Cindy (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you plan to attend.
Summer diocesan youth opportunities
Diocesan Youth Council
The DYC is a great way for youth in grades 10-12 to develop a life of prayer, fellowship with other like-minded youth, and a heart for service. If you know someone that would be interested, please pass along an application, which can be found here.
Rome Youth Pilgrimage
Please say a prayer for the 25 youth and their chaperones attending the Rome Youth Pilgrimage from June 9-20!
I am excited that we have 12 parishes/AFCs signed up for Totus Tuus. Go here to see the summer tour and perhaps go check out a program if you are not hosting one yourself.
Camp Beloved and Camp Greatness
Once again we will be hosting Camp Beloved and Camp Greatness at Schoenstatt in Sleepy Eye. These are such wonderful camps, staffed by the Handmaids (for Camp Beloved), our seminarians (for Camp Greatness), and the Totus Tuus missionaries. These camps are a blessing for our diocese and I only wish more parishes would avail themselves of the opportunity to send youth to them. You simply cannot find another youth event like it, nor can you replicate the diocesan culture it builds among the youth. Oh, and they are half the price (at least) of most other camps out there. Camp Beloved - July 20-24 ($200) Camp Greatness (Middle School) - July 25-28 ($150) Camp Greatness (High School) - July 30 - August 2 ($200)
