MHOC Youth Ministry
Youth Ministry Update 01/11
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a beautiful and blessed time with your family!
Youth group will begin this
Sunday, January 14th from 5-7pm
. Both the EDGE (Middle school) and LIFETEEN (high school) will meet in the church courtyard for a pizza dinner.
We are inviting the EDGE (Middle school) parents to please stay for an evening that requires your presence. After dinner, the EDGE and their parents will head to the garden for a bonfire.
LIFETEEN (High school) will remain in the church.
In other news, our new pastor, Fr. Ireneusz (Pronounced: EAR- IN- A- US) has appointed Mrs. Julizza Licardie (P.E. teacher at MHOC school) to be a part-time youth minister. Please give Julizza a warm welcome! I look forward to introducing her to all of you on Sunday. She is a beautiful person inside and who radiates Christ's love! With her help, we know we will be able to regain organization and structure in the ministry.
I will be transitioning Julizza into her role of communicating with you all so that future notifications will come from her. I will still be involved in the ministry, however, I am passing many of the youth group responsibilities to Julizza. You are in great hands.
Also, Fr. Ireneusz would like to begin a youth Mass on Sunday evenings at 6pm. This Mass will start off to take place once a month, beginning the end of February. We will be speaking to your children on Sunday to see how they can be involved.
Finally, some of you may know that I am getting married very soon. Several of your children who have gotten to know me have expressed interest in attending my wedding Mass, so I would love to share the church details with you and welcome your teens and family to witness my sacramental marriage.
The wedding Mass will be on Saturday, January 20th at 3:00pm in St. Andrew Catholic Church located at 9950 N.W.29th Street, Coral Springs, FL 33065.
It has been a pleasure serving your children these past few crazy months in our parish. Please pray for me as I embark into the married life. You and your children are all always in my prayers.
Yours in Christ,
Director of Faith Formation
