We look forward to meet together again!!!
November 20, 2015
On Tuesday, November 17, 2015 Father Mykhaylo invited all the young parishioners of Russell St. Mary’s Church and Area to meet and discuss the future of our church and the importance the youth play in our church.
We discussed a lot of ideas on how to bring the youth together. Some ideas were Christmas caroling, hosting a fish and chips dinner during lent, getting together at the Assessippi Ski Hill and enjoying a fun day of tubing, having a movie night, and inviting a Winnipeg Youth Group to visit our parish to make a presentation on what they have done as a youth group.
We also discussed having a Sunday Service for the youth once a month in our church where the children would sing several songs and Father’s homily would be directed towards the youth. It was also suggested we could have a catechism class during that Sunday Divine Liturgy.
A Youth Committee was then formed. This group, along with anyone else interested, will meet on a regular basis to discuss ideas for the youth of the church and will carry out these ideas.
In closing we enjoyed tea, juice, and delicious poppy seed bread specially made by Mrs. Iryna. It was nice to pray and visit together.
We look forward to meeting together again soon. Thank you Father Mykhaylo and God bless you for your efforts to bring us all together.
