This weekend the Holy Cross Youth Group will open its membership for the coming year. Mssrs. Mike Feerst and Mat Butler will speak at all the masses to explain the many new opportunities for prayer, service and growing in faith that the group will offer this year.
For the 2012-2013 season, We will again be offering our Youth Program for teens of the Parish. Young people in grades 9-12 are encouraged to participate! Our staff has worked out a great program to benefit this age group in many ways.
Speaking of staff, we are excited to announce that our staff has expanded! Matt Butler, CBA religion teacher and coach, and Greer McCarthy, Holy Cross 5th grade teacher will be teaming up with Amy Evans , Linda Delaney and myself. We are excited for a year of great food, good fun, super service projects, and “an enlightening experience.”
Most young people desire a relationship with God, but struggle with how to get started and keep it going. Holy Cross Youth Ministry is an excellent way to keep young people thinking about their faith while acting on Catholic social teaching. The program will include prayer, service to those less fortunate, social gathering and, of course, a lot of fun! Participating in our Youth Ministry is something positive to add to college applications and job applications. Today’s world is so competitive, and youth ministry can provide a spiritual edge to help our teens develop a smooth transition into growing older.
We hope you will join us! Please fill out the registration form and return it to the Holy Cross Parish or School office. Questions? Call me at 732-842-0348, extension 1140.
