Often times once you are confirmed in the church, you may struggle with a reason to attend Mass anymore. You feel as though you have learned enough through Religious Education, and that attending Mass will not provide any real benefit to your life. That is simply not true. As we mature, our minds widen. That is why it is important to attend Mass and allow our minds to develop with Catholic teachings. Youth Ministry (YM) allows us to do so.
This week we thought we’d try something a bit different. Instead of writing an article about what we do, we thought we’d showcase one of our parishes, and what they do in their community. For our first one, we thought we’d shine the light on St. Andrew Parish in Newtown and their HOPE program.
