COR JESU CARMELITE YOUTH MINISTRY

 

Our next COR JESU NIGHT will be Friday, January 17 (“Becoming Missionary Disciples of Jesus: St. Elizabeth of the Trinity & Bl. Titus Brandsma” (Envy vs. Gratitude), and will include viewing the five-minute film, "The Veil Removed" (produced by St. Therese’s R.D. Delgado). Note: We had the privilege of viewing it at the December Cor Jesu Night; in all, it has had over 600,000 views on YouTube.  

Our next SERVICE events will be the two PRO LIFE EVENTS, OneLifeLA on January 18 and the Walk for Life in San Francisco (see the articles on this page).

THANK YOU to all those who donated blankets and LOTS of warm clothing for those in need; to John “Fun Coordinator” Wrot and all the participating youth (Anna, Elizabeth, James, Gianna, and Aliya) for the hilarious skit; to Mauricio Guardado for his powerful testimonial about his time in El Salvador as a former Communist turned devout Catholic dad; to Sr. Mary Joseph, Sr. Pia, and Fr. David for sharing stories about the Carmelite Saints; to the Gomez Family for picking up the pizza; and to JESUS, for forgiving our sins and working in us!
