As Lent continues and we focus on our faith with inward reflection, we can't lose sight of each other. This is at the heart of the last week and next couple of weeks within the youth ministries of the Diocese. As part of the plan to have a Diocesan wide youth event every month.
In February we had an event called "30 Hour Famine" in which youth and adults in attendance deliberately fast for approximately 30 hours, in order to raise awareness in ourselves about what it means to be hungry, and to raise money and awareness in the community about world hunger. There were around 40 people in attendance, and everyone had a lot of fun together, even if they were hungry.
Simultaneously, the staff for Happening #69, met for training. Happening is a high school lock-in/retreat that focuses on faith, Jesus, and refection. On March 13-15 they will be meeting, and sharing, and there is an outpouring of love that goes into a Happening. Caritas, is one way for us as a community to share the love with those participating. If you are a Happener (have participated in Happening) or if you are part of the Cursillo community you have experienced this kind of love.
As our Lent continues, perhaps you would like to take a couple of moments and share the love with each other. If you would like to learn how to participate with Happening in this way, please contact Nick or the Office, and they can give you more details.
