Youth conferences are great events for Catholic youth to attend. Kids get to be in a fun, vibrant, exciting place with lots of other kids where they don’t need to be shy of expressing their faith, or desire for faith. It’s like a Catholic rock concert with lots of prayer and wisdom included. THIS conference is right here in Des Moines, and THIS year it will be in a much larger venue (Iowa Events Center, Sunday Oct. 22nd) with a very well-known keynote speaker: Chris Padgett! For a taste of Chris’s style and humor, here’s a plug for the conference he just put out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4hL29_5peY
This is the most convenient, least expensive youth conference your child will ever have access to! Please take advantage of this great event and register your 7th-12 grade kids now! Return the attached form (fillable without printing!) to me and I’ll get our group registered with the diocese.
By the way, I can personally chaperone up to 8 students. If we get more than 8 (and I hope we do!) please consider being a chaperone for our St. Augustin kids. Thank you!
OPEN During The 10:00 AM Sunday Mass
Located in the lower level of the Parish Hall. To enter go to the east hallway entrance of the church and turn right at the end of the hallway. Door to downstairs is located there.
COME TO MYSTAGOGY
St. Augustin parish conference room
9:00 a.m. on Sunday, July 9, 2017,
and then on the second Sunday of the
month until next Easter.
There you will join with and support our neophytes who entered the Church last Easter in keeping with the plan set forth in the Rite of Christian Initiation for participation by the assembly. We will be discussing our experience of the Mass and the sacraments. In sharing our faith experience, we will deepen the faith of the neophytes and our own faith. The July 9th session begins our ongoing discussion of the Mass with our examination of the Entrance Rites of the Mass and the symbols and liturgical impact that come with them. The sessions begin right after the 8:00 a.m. Mass and end before the 10:00 a.m. Mass to serve the convenience of those who attend. You are invited to attend any and all of the sessions that you can.
All are invited to join!
