Early in April, our popular weekly middle school, high school, college and parent zoom gatherings brought people together
for prayer, discussion and support.  The strange 2020 summer saw many cancellations but CYM was able to host 3 retreats,
safe food pantry service days, regular zoom gatherings, and more.

Faith Formation

Although no virtual program matches face to face interactions, and although we will reassess after the fall semester, our very dedicated volunteers and staff will share the Head, Heart and Hands of Jesus with the young church in a mostly virtual process. While there will be some opportunities to meet in person, these will be few and far between, and will have a virtual option for those who are not comfortable with in person.   Please make sure to check all the option at https://www.stlouisparish.org/reled/youth/

Resources

Marathon Youth Ministry: Created an eight-day devotional focused on “Healing and Love” for young people. It takes youth through Scripture to engage them in how to “consider,” “hope,” “pray,” and “apply” the insights from the Bible to their lives. https://drive.google.com/open?id=18BwXEITHkO9AxS4ahEfPrdOyg5wxyQHW
