Welcome to St. Patrick Youth Ministry! St. Patrick Youth Group is a service and social group. We follow the goals of Renewing the Vision as set forth by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. (1) Empowerment – To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today. (2) Participation – To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community. (3) Growth – To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
February 28 – March 1. COR stands for the Christ in Others Retreat. CORE is also the Latin word for heart. On this retreat you will get to the heart of the important things in life: self, God, and others. C.O.R. is for all high school students in 9th—12th grades. St. Patrick joins with 4 other parishes each year for this once in a lifetime retreat. Information pamphlets and permission slips are available in the Gathering Space. ALL ARE WELCOME! The deadline to sign up for COR is Wednesday, February 12th.
Lunch for the Open Door homeless will be prepared every other Wednesday at 5:45 pm unless otherwise noted in the bulletin.
Join us at 4:45 pm each day and lift your prayers as one:
Needed— Men and Women of Character
The world needs men and women …who cannot be bought;
whose word is their bond; who put character above wealth;
who possess opinions and a strong will;
who are larger than their vocations;
who do not hesitate to take risks;
who will not lose their individuality in a crowd;
who will be as honest in small affairs as in greater;
who will make no compromise with wrong;
whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires;
who will not say they do it “because everybody else does it;”
who are true to their friends through good and bad,
in adversity as well as in prosperity;
who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning,
and hardheadedness are the best qualities for winning success;
who are not ashamed or afraid to stand for the truth when it is unpopular;
who can say “no” with emphasis, although all the rest of the world says “yes.”
And who can say “yes” to answering the call of Christ.
