Throughout this holiday week, we offer praise to our Lord in Thanksgiving for a wonderful BYCC weekend!
There were so many memories… the laughter at the antics of APeX mixed in with a solid message; the multitude of voices joining Joia Farmer and Paul Hood and band singing Don’t Stop Believing; the deep quiet during Eucharistic Adoration and Lectio Divina; the powerful witnesses offered by young people; the ocean-stilled, moon-illuminated rosary on the beach; and, the joy of being “youngchurch” together again!
Following-up on the weekend…
>> The participants generously donated over $1300 to Catholic Relief Services in support of Peace in the Sudan.
