Hopeful EXTRA & In-person Activities
We are still hopeful that EXTRA, and in-person activities will resume at some point. To be ready when they do, the youth ministry has scheduled activities that encourage Social Justice, Community Prayer and Relational Ministry. We propose the following activities only if they are happening and are safe to participate in:
Potential Social Justice Opportunities
|Friday Jan 29 (TBD)||Possible Out of the Cold Social Justice Night with the Knights of Columbus (one parent must accompany their youth)|
|April||Bundle Up weekend with the St Vincent de Paul Society (an adult must accompany the youth)|
Potential Prayer Opportunities
- If the First Friday Mass resumes in Feb, May or June, Youth Ministry members will be encouraged to participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass followed by the Sacred Heart Devotional in St Joseph’s church. Families welcome.
- If St Joseph’s Parish is praying the Stations of the Cross on Feb 19, March 5 and March 19 during Lent, Youth Ministry members will be encouraged to participate at 7:30 PM in St Joseph’s church. Families welcome.
- The Lift Jesus Higher Rally is scheduled for Feb 27th, 2021. This Catholic Event includes the Rosary, Reconciliation, Praise and Worship, Adoration, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and testimonies. Youth Ministry
members may be invited to participate IF COVID19 restrictions are lifted and it is safe to go. Details will be shared at that time.
- EDGE CAMP celebrated its 10th year in 2019. The 5 day overnight Catholic Camp was at Camp White Pine, Haliburton, Ontario. Activities included: daily Mass, Adoration, Praise & Worship, catechesis, water activities, climbing challenges, games, fellowship. Due to COVID19, the 2020 camp was cancelled. We still retain hope for its return in August 2021. Details will be communicated as needed.
