Upcoming Youth Ministry Events:
Sundays: Join Project YM ONLINE
Thousands of teenagers from across the country are gathering on Sunday nights for the BIGGEST YOUTH NIGHT EVER. It’s called ProjectYM Live and each week it’ll feature some of the biggest speakers and worship leaders in the Catholic youth ministry world – last week they had OVER 10,000 students participate. Our parish is signed up to participate – all your teenager has to do is head to PROJECTYM.COM/WATCH Sundays at 7pm Central.
Two quick notes: The broadcast starts at 7pm CDT, but plan to have your student log in a few minutes early to make sure they’re on when it starts. They can access the event on any device with a web browser – but the faster the connection, the better. PS. Though this event is geared at teenagers, you are invited to watch along with them!
Summer Youth Camps
Jr. High School students…we hope you’ll consider CAMP ROCK! Click here to access an informational brochure.
|We’d like to try to keep in better contact with our graduated seniors, and are very interested in reaching out to them. So we need the help of parents! If you have a child who is away at college, trade school, or in the service or workforce, AND you’d like them to consider SKD their parish home, please let us know where they are.|
About our Team…
John N. Lamperis from Joyful Hope presentations joins us as he consults on evangelization of our youth ministry, religious education and other parish programs. John is the father of 8 children ranging in age from 10 to 33 and enjoys riding motorcycles, playing the drums and parties. John and his wife Stephanie live in Batavia. John is the co-founder of Camp WOW and founder of Camp Rock which are now in their 22nd year. He provides talks and retreats in three local dioceses.
Joyful Hope is what John is about. Many of our parishioners can testify to that from his presentations during Mass. John sees JOY as one of the many results of the Sacrifice of Christ and understands how it motivates our youth into a deeper journey with Jesus and a steady participation at RE classes, Youth Group and Mass. The best way to sum up his goals and purpose here is “How do we make it more fun!” and in this way, everyone will know we are Believers.
