Updates and Changes - Encounter Nights
Education Night name change! We have decided to change the name of our Youth Ministry Education Nights to "Encounter Nights." We are following the mission and goals of our Parish Leadership Team and the Archdiocesan Synod - Encounter * Grow * Witness. It may just be a name change, but this will help our teens move towards being joyful missionary disciples!
This year, Encounter Nights begin at 5pm. We start with a light meal before the meeting. We are looking for adults who would love to give the gift of a simple meal to our teens. The meals don’t have to be elaborate just simple and quick for example chili, sandwiches, or even just offering to order pizza for everyone.
We offer the meal until 5:30pm and then start our regular meeting, which lasts until 6:45pm. Then we can transition to our nightly monthly Mass. We are inviting the entire parish to this Mass as another Sunday option. As with all Masses, we are starting to greet and welcome people as they enter the church and offer fellowship after Mass. We need teen volunteers to help make this happen! This is a great opportunity for us to engage parishioners and welcome new people. Mass will start promptly at 7pm and following mass Fellowship will be offered until 8:30pm.
Along with the greeters and teens for fellowship, we need teens to help with liturgical ministries. If you have ever wanted to help during Mass but were too intimidated, this Mass will be a great opportunity. Training will be provided. We want the teens to be front and center serving the community at the liturgy.
