COR JESU CARMELITE YOUTH MINISTRY

 

Cor Jesu will have its "kick-off" on September 21st! 

Dear YOUTH & PARENTS, 

Praised be Jesus Christ! The 2018-2019 COR JESU year is "kicking off" on Friday, September 21. You may REGISTER by clicking here X or by picking up the form in the office.  Return the form to the office, along with any fees. 

What's New? Monthly "DISCIPLESHIP NIGHTS"! Like a RETREAT rolled into one evening a month, DISCIPLESHIP NIGHTS combine a teen social, relevant group studies, and deep prayer.  After going deeper into age-appropriate, retreat-like (non-classroom) study & reflection on St. John Paul II's "The Theology of the Body," the youth will end the evening connecting with the Risen Jesus in a dynamic Holy Hour (opportunity for Confession!).  The next day, we will go out to serve.  The schedule for DISCIPLESHIP NIGHTS will be as follows: 

  • 6:30 p.m. in the Hall: Social, including light food, music, games, ping pong, etc. 

  • 7:00 p.m.: Meeting of DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS:

    • High School Group (ice breakers, prayer, a presentation, dynamic videos, and brotherhood/sisterhood small group discussions);

    • Middle School Group (ice breakers, prayer, age-appropriate teaching/videos, energy activities, small group discussion); 

    • Parent Study Group (by Cor Jesu parents in leadership): Using Catholic studies through "Formed.org," we will go deeper into the Faith. (Please note that we will have a CHILDREN'S ACTIVITY COORDINATOR so that the whole family can be involved!)

  • 8:30 p.m.: HOLY HOUR and Confessions to help youth and families to encounter Jesus. This will be a traditional Exposition/Benediction service, with chants, praise music, Scriptural reflection, and compline prayers. All are welcome!

 

HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH: From September through June, there will be 10 sessions of the new study, "YOU:  Life, Love, and The Theology of the Body."  Soon-to-be Father Matthias will be the Director, along with Coordinator Catherine Contreras (President of Vox Vitae-www.voxvitae.org).
