These Kids Have it Together

Kudos to the Youth Team of Our Lady at St. Joseph's in Fergus!

About one dozen teenagers organized and all night Adoration (prayer vigil) last Friday to usher in Holy Week. We've been helping this youth group over the past 4 years, and it's been an honour. This isn't your run of the mill youth group where a bunch of church kids get together to chill, eat pizza, or go bowling. These young people meet to pray, study, and support each other in discerning their vocations. One of the recent Alumni is already in the seminary and will no doubt become an excellent priest.

It's always a pleasure to meet with the group and hear how mature and wise these young people can be, but, this Friday night and Saturday morning was truly special. I'm very thankful that God has blessed my family and our parish with such special kids. If you feel called, please join me in praying for them, and specifically that God will call them deeper into His service.
