MOST WANTED LIST: TEENS

St. Sebastian has a weekly youth group meeting called BRICK. They want you to know that if you are in high school and do not have a weekly youth group to attend that YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME to meet with them. Their first BRICK meeting this semester will be on Monday, October 15th at 7 to 8:30 PM.

Other exciting BRICK news: Every other Monday that BRICK meets, they will be presenting a program for Catholic teenagers based on St. John Paul II’s revolutionary Theology of the Body that helps Teens understand more profoundly the significance of their sexuality, its purpose and how this complements their call to greatness.

This program is entitled You: Live, Love, and the Theology of the Body. This dynamic program will give teens the answers and the tools they need to successfully and safely navigate life. A parent information night will be held on Monday, October 22nd. Contact St. Sebastian’s Youth Minister Giovanni Vitale at gvitaleii@gmail.com or call 313.969-7750 or St. Kateri’s Dn.

OUR FRENCH CANADIAN AUTUMN TRIP REPORT

Our Autumn Trip was a great success! There were 42 travelers that experienced Quebec City, Montreal and Niagara Falls. One of the highlights was the visit to the St. Francis Mission and the tomb of St. Kateri. It was a moving experience and one that we won’t soon forget. We enjoyed great food, wonderful sights, made new friends and deepened the friendship of those we knew. We shared many laughs, and had both a phenomenal bus driver, Antonio, and Tour Director, JoAnn. Think about joining us on our next trip. Stay tuned to the bulletin.
