Hey Everyone!So we're getting ready for our first ever Diocesan Youth Rally "Momentum" for grades 6-8 on April 30th at Holy Spirit Parish in Saskatoon! Bishop Donald Bolen will be with us to celebrate mass at 5 PM, and our keynote speaker is Michael Chiasson from Calgary (www.allaccessministries.com).I strongly encourage you to pass this on to your local youth coordinator or volunteer and share this with youth in your church and local schools! The goal is to give youth a day of inspiration while experiencing the church on a larger Diocesan scale. Lets fill the church with hundreds of students! It is my hope that they can be encouraged on their faith journey and an increased desire to serve the world with the gifts God has given them.This has come out of the need spoken after the reordering of sacraments, and a way to acknowledge and support those youth journeying to reaffirm their faith through the Steps in Faith process.Many have asked if High School students can be involved and the answer is YES. We are looking to have a youth conference for high school aged youth next year, but would still like their participation as leaders at Momentum. Therefore we are forming an association of students gr 9-12 called "High School Apostles" going forward. The rally will be the first opportunity for them to serve, grow, and nourish their faith. If you are interested or know someone who wants to become a member please have them contact me!So I encourage you to not miss this opportunity and organize a group of youth grades 6-8 with chaperones to come as a step in faith and build "Momentum"!Check out our Momentum website here for more info and promotional material to use. you can view our first promo video on youtube. You can also register online here and then send in your check and permission form to me or your local youth ministry leader.God Bless, I hope to hear from you soon!
