Mini Missions: Summer Immersion Experiences for Families and Small Groups
May 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDTFree
Presented by Joan Weber, Teri Iverson and Vince Lujan and moderated by Jane Angha
This webinar will introduce three powerful outreach and service days for youth, young adults or families to use throughout the summer. Team members who created the project will talk about the title – Resound and the themes of Solidarity, Dignity and Environment. The team will share why now more than ever it’s good to have young people serving, connecting faith to life, learning a bit of Catholic social tradition, Scripture and prayer that mark our lives as missionary disciples. The hope is for the young church to be agents of change and make a bit of noise that will resound in communities to make an impact on themselves and those they encounter!
