THURSDAY, October 1 Youth Night @ the Parish Center 7-9pm
Theme - Living the Gospel of Life
Abortion gets a lot of attention but as we begin Respect Life Month, we will do an activity and have a discussion on where our Catholic faith and personal passions call us on various life issues from abortion, to racial justice, to healthcare, to how we care for the elderly, to death penalty, and immigration. How are we upholding life in how we talk to and treat others in our day to day lives as teens? Following that we will have games, snacks, and hang out. Bring a pumpkin for Family Promise Shelter!
