Where Jesus Walked – IMPACT Scripture Meditation
Imagine being part of an event that happened 2,000 years ago! Teens in grades 9 -12 are invited to join a new IMPACT Scripture Meditation called Where Jesus Walked on Sundays from 5 – 6 p.m. prior to the Lifeteen Mass. Scripture Meditation is a prayer form bringing members to a loving awareness of God with a calm, relaxing state of mind. Participants will be invited to become part of a gospel scene that places them within a biblical event. Each prayer service has an opening activity to set the tone, introduction, scripture reading or dramatization and closing prayer. Our next session is Sunday, November 2 in the Youth Room in the Parish Center. For more information, contact Donna Vazquez, assistant youth director, at email@example.com.
Bishop Malone will celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation with our parish on Sunday, May 31 at 3 p.m. in church. A mandatory rehearsal will be held for all confirmation candidates and their sponsors (or a parent if the sponsor cannot attend) on Sunday, May 17 at 6:30 p.m. also in church. Specific details have been e-mailed to all those families with a confirmation candidate. If you have not received this e-mail, please contact Holly Hooton(688-0599) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
