Youth in Action

Greetings to All,

In the midst of one of the coldest, snowiest Chicago winters on record, I’m pleased to make an announcement that will warm your hearts: St. Pius V has a new young adult group called Jóvenes en Acción por un Mundo Mejor, or, Youth in Action for a Better World.

A core-group of young people from the parish have been trained for leadership through the Group Leadership Training program sponsored by the Archdiocese of Chicago.

These enthusiastic young people are beginning their ministry to the parish by offering two events that should be of interest to their peers and to families in the parish.

They have planned a free movie night on February 21, 2014, in the church hall. This is a great family event and the movie looks like a lot of fun! Check it out! Inexpensive snacks will be available and there is also a raffle for a Play Station 3 and other prizes. You can find more details here.

The next event is an overnight retreat for young adults scheduled for March 1-2, 2014. Details on that will follow soon, so watch for them!

I’m proud of our parish young people and encourage you to support them in their new ministry to our parish!
