January 6 – February 8, 2019 - 33 days leading up to and including the Annual Membership Meeting
Beginning with Epiphany Sunday on January 6th, 2019, the youth ministry community in the United States will spend 33 days in prayer and deep reflection preparing for a renewed commitment to the mission of bringing young people to Jesus Christ through the Blessed Mother. The 33 days will conclude with a nine-day Novena which would lead up to and including the membership meeting. (This 33-day period includes World Youth Day (Jan 21-28), the March for Life (Jan 18), Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan 21), the feast of St. John Bosco (Jan 31), Anti-Human Trafficking Day (Feb 8).)
