We’re Starting a Youth Club from October 2019
Please, do not forget, that from this October 2019 we’ll start our YOUTH CLUB for the young children and teenagers. The aim is to gather enthusiastic young people with a good will to grow up in God’s Wisdom through His Truth and Love. These young people will be prepared through the next years to take part on another time with the youth from all around the world, who will come to Lisbon in 2022 to meet with the Pope Francis to celebrate WORLD YOUT DAY there. The meetings will be held on Tuesday from 4.00pm to 6.00pm. BE READY!!!
Children would you like to go on a Pilgrim’s Walk around Jersey? 22nd July – 26th July 2019
With a huge joy I would like to inform all of You, that we have a plan to establish a solid YOUTH CLUB in our Parish. The idea is based on our wonderful altar servers who will go for their annual trip to my first Parish in Great Britain – to Jersey. But, this trip will have a huge heart (‘Lion’s Heart’), because it is going to be organised in the way of a sponsor walk, dedicated to our ministry towards the local homeless. Because from the next Pastoral Year (from September) we would like to increase our ministry to the prisoners, as we have found out that many homeless people go there, or some of them become homeless after leaving the prison.
First of all, I would like to ask You do not be upset by my look during this Lent, even if I will look a little bit like a barbarian. It will be something to shock our children for the Easter Mass.
Second, the message for those who would like to join us for our SPONSORED WALK AROUND JERSEY ISLAND this Summer (from 22nd July – 26th July 2019). I will cover the costs for our altar servers from your generous Christmas collection for me, and the costs of this trip for other children or teenagers I will cover with The Easter collection, which is also dedicated to the priest. Our children very soon will be given a special sheet to collect their sponsors, and the special letter will be send to their school asking for Lenten support for them. All the money collected will be dedicated for our spread ministry for the homeless and those who are in the prison now, and those who are coming out. We will walk 34 miles in 5 days, visiting the most special, beautiful places in Jersey.
Preparing for World Youth Day in Lisbon 2022.
It will be also our preparation to the World Youth Day in Lisbon (2022) and making a dream real to manage a walking Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostella (Spain 2020). More info will be share in the next Newsletters. Please, all the children in age from 9 to 15 are very welcome, if You only see that YOUTH CLUB. in the church is something You would like to belong, create and identify with.
