July & August 2017 HTYouth Newsletter

Happy summer to our parishioners! Our parish’s youth have made it to summer vacation, with all of its adventures and fun. Holy Trinity Parish will have summer ministry activities throughout July and the beginning of August for youth and young adults.

Teens will have many things to look forward to this summer. We’ll be playing Ultimate Frisbee at Jubilee Park from 6:30-8:30pm on Wednesdays. We will also have some social afternoons for teens on Sundays (with the totally snazzy and non-lame title of “Sunday Fundays”). These Sunday Fundays will be on July 9, 16, and 30, beginning at 3pm and ending at 5pm. We will have an afternoon of capture the flag , titled “Googa Mooga”, some community building games involving blindfolds, and a huge water fight with water guns and balloons! Youth who will be going into grades 9 to 12, along with recent graduates, are welcome to attend!

We will also be continuing our HT Young Adults group through the summer. There will be three meetings: Thursday July 6 and 20, and August 3 at 7pm. Young adults are invited to watch a video or teaching and discuss a topic each meeting. We are also currently planning a trip to Jasper for our young adults from July 21-23. We’ll be heading out on Friday afternoon or evening, and coming back in time for the 6pm Mass at Holy Trinity. The trip will be an opportunity for young adults to build community, pray together, and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation! Interested young adults should contact the youth office!

This summer also marks the beginning of Holy Trinity Parish’s preparation for World Youth Day Panama in January 2019.

We will be having a preliminary information meeting for youth and young adults interested in joining our WYD group on Monday July 10 at 6:30pm in the youth office. Young adults and youth who will be 18 years old in time for WYD are welcome to attend!

Join us for any of these youth events! The youth office will be taking it’s own break in August, but will be back soon afterward for planning and conniving for the youth activities in the fall!

After our two-week series on pornography, our teens asked, and so we are making a t-shirt order from Fight The New Drug. There is a sign up sheet, and a cost of $25 per shirt. If you’re interested in getting a t-shirt with an anti-porn message, contact the office.
