Happy New Year to everyone! St. Joseph’s will begin in January to offer an exciting new program on the 2nd Thursdays of each month from 7-9pm.
“Were not our hearts burning within us” Luke 24:32
If you would like to introduce the teens and young adults (or anyone of any age) of your parish or continue to share in the amazing grace of Adoration, please try and join us. It is free and will be held for the time being at St. Joseph’s in Charlton until it grows enough to be able to move it more central w/in the diocese. It is open to everyone, young and old! So spread the word!
We know the benefits of Adoration to our Catholic community are enormous…increased vocations, deeper prayer lives, teenagers who stay connected after Confirmation and thru college, etc.
The evening will have great praise and worship music, talk/witness, reconciliation, and of course…Adoration complete with Benediction and Divine Praises. Young adult, Dan the Man from Leicester, will speak on Thurs. 1/10 and then Father Gomez on Feb. 14th. We will soon post the speakers for 3/13, 4/10, and 5/8. Let us know if you have any suggestions.
Our neighboring dioceses offer LIFT and Extreme East monthly. It is wonderful that the choices to express our faith and help one another (teens to adults) to enrich our prayer lives are increasing. And we know that it is great for the kids around the diocese to witness the greater church as they did with Youth Day here in our diocese. So we hope you will make the decision to try and experience for yourself and your teens, one of these wonderful opportunities to continue to praise our AWESOME GOD and keep His energy, passion, and desire to be more intimate with us growing!
