Tuesday, Oct 4 – Parent meeting for Catholic teens in Evanston parishes (grades 8-12)
- Come for a discussion with local pastors and youth ministers to see how our local Catholic parishes in Evanston are collaborating to provide faith-related opportunities for our teens preparing for Confirmation through high school age. Although they may belong to separate parishes, they may attend high school together. This combined youth ministry is a great way to make new friends and take their faith beyond parish boundaries.
- NOTE: This is the same night as the SJA Confirmation Parent meeting, so our 8th grade parents and Fr. Dan will not be able to attend.
Sunday, Oct 9 – Evanston Youth Ministry Fall Kickoff – 12:15 Teen Mass and Barbecue for grades 8-12 (and families) at St. Mary’s
- Mary’s regularly holds a “Teen Mass” throughout the year. Come and see.
Saturday, October 15 for 6th-9th grade students at UIC Pavilion – HOLY FIRE!!
See the teaser videos and program line-up at https://www.formedcatholic.com/holyfire
- Think of this Archdiocesan event as a mini “World Youth Day” just for Chicago-land. The Evanston Youth Ministry is sponsoring a bus that will go down on Saturday, leaving at 7:30am, and returning at 5pm. See the attached flyers and permission forms or https://evanstonyouthministry.wordpress.com/2016/09/01/holy-fire/
- Many parishes are encouraging their students preparing for confirmation to attend as a class.
- NOTE that the price has been updated to $35 for registration and $25 for the bus.
