Survey for Youth & Young Adults

Attention all those ages 14-39!  You have a voice in the Catholic Church and we want to hear it.  The Diocesan Office of Youth, Young Adult & Campus Ministry is conducting an area wide survey of all Youth & Young Adults to help understand your spiritual and social needs. This includes all those in middle, high school, college students, young singles, young families, etc.  We are interested in the responses of those who regularly attend Mass, occasionally attend, and those who may have left the Catholic Church or are no longer practicing. If you are a Teen or Young Adult, or if you have Teenagers or Young Adults in your family, please visit http://www.camdendiocese.org/synod-2018/.  It only takes 5-12 minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous. The results will be shared with pastors and church leaders to help reach your needs. The more responses the better, so share with your Teenage and Young Adult family and friends.  The survey will be live through the end of May. 

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

"The greatness of the love which Jesus has for every soul in the state of grace is something that no tongue coule adequately express. When He wished to depart this life, this sweet Spouse of souls, lest His absence might cause them to forget Him, left to them as a memorial the Blessed Sacrament, in which He Himself remained. His own self was the only pledge He wished should remain between these souls and Himself, that they might always remember Him." - St. Peter of Alcantara

Love Him, praise Him, thank Him, beg Him for mercy and forgiveness, tell Him what you want. He is waiting for you in the Blessed Sacrament. Go and spend some time with Him.

Weekly Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament: Thursdays from 4 pm - 10 pm, and Fridays from 5 am - 4 pm  in Holy Family Chapel, Our Lady of Lourdes Church. Weekly Holy Hour on Fridays from 3 pm - 4 pm.

"Take advantage of your short time on earth. Do those things that will lead you to eternal life."

Something to think about...questions for this week

How do you show others that you truly believe in the resurrection of Jesus? What do you do when you encounter people who doubt His resurrection? What can you do to better share your belief?

(Remember - though it varies from person to person, it generally takes no less than 21 days to develop a new habit. It also takes discipline, courage and determination on a daily basis.)
