Youth Faith Formation (YFF) Big Thank You!: We have finished out our first YFF Parish Missions for this school year! We had a rough start of it, but we had to make some quick decisions and changes in Sacred Heart Parish with a restart, and so, for some consistency between parishes and my messaging, we made some changes in St. Pius X Parish also. Some people said they didn’t need any changes, but based on my experience in several parishes, if I make some changes in one parish that parishioners from other linked parishes like, they will complain that their other parish is neglected. This all was a challenge, but overall, our YFF Missions were a greatsuccess. We eventually filled all of our catechist and other volunteer positions. Also, we had over 80 percent attendance in both parishes with many compliments. Of course, we have more time for better planning now and based on requests for changes, more time to work on making some adjustments. With all of this, I owe a very big thank you to ourstaff, our volunteer catechists and theirsubstitutes, YFF coordinators and other volunteers, parents, grandparents, and young disciples for making the adjustments or at least trying to. It really was a great year. We look forward to an even better one next year. Please consider your involvement for next year as an opportunity to serve our Lord by serving His children! Our YFF Parish Missions continue with Summer YFF (formerly VBS) May 31st - June 3 rd . Sacred Heart Parish volunteers are taking the lead while welcoming volunteers and children from St. Pius X Parish. New this year will be Youth Nights on the same dates!
