Next Wednesday night March 27, 2019 the youth group is extending an invitation for any parishioner to come to a meeting with the youth group. I mentioned this a few weeks ago. We start at 7 p.m. and end at 8p.m. We meet in the parish center. These meetings are not like a bible study. We talk openly about any particular topic. Sometimes it might be about a current event. What we do is tie this into the purpose of our mission. You see our mission is not the trip to Honduras. The trip is of course an important element, it is not however the end result. Some may think this is a service project. The mission is a way of life. Simply put the mission is a straight forward and sometimes difficult approach of persisting in our faith. Building the church in Honduras represents all of us working together so our faith can continue for those who may be lost or for those who are struggling in their faith. Just like ourselves as we struggle sometimes. We all need to keep coming back so we do not lose perspective. I think of the words Father Oscar Romero once said, "we are not Messiahs, we are simply mission workers".
