Become a Prayer and Shareholder
This July, forty-seven youth, nine chaperones, one college youth leader, and the associate pastor from SVdP will have an opportunity to attend the Steubenville Mid-AmericaConference. This is a record number for us. The Conference is a high-energy youth conference where thousands of teens are invited to encounter Jesus Christ through dynamic speakers, engaging music, the Sacraments, small group discussions, and fellowship with other teens. The conference is an outreach of Franciscan University in partnership with the St. Louis Archdiocesan Office of Youth Ministry. We will be travelling with hundreds of other youth from the Omaha Archdiocese.
Our young people are very excited to attend and we would like to ask your help. This year we are again offering the opportunity to become a Prayer and Shareholder. There will be young people in the Narthex after Mass the weekend of April 29-30 available to speak with you and sign you up as a Prayer and Shareholder. In exchange for your financial support, you will receive a prayer card which we ask you to use to pray for our group as we prepare for this experience, as well as updates from our group as we travel to the Conference and a link to an electronic brochure with pictures and participant quotes.
If you don’t catch us that weekend, you can participate in the Prayer and Shareholder Program by printing off and completing this response card and sending it to the Youth Ministry Office with a check made payable to St. Vincent de Paul for $20 per share.
We greatly appreciate your support and your helping our youth continue to grow in their relationship with Christ.
L.I.F.E. (Living in Faith Everyday)
L.I.F.E. meets Sundays from 6 to 8 pm in the St. Vincent de Paul Room where we share a meal, discuss issues, celebrate our faith, and have fun. Each L.I.F.E Night will end by 8:00 pm so there will be time to get to that last minute homework.
No matter which of the dozen different Public or Catholic High Schools youth attend, all 9th
through 12th graders are are invited to come be a part of this amazing group of youth and adults. It is never too late in the year to join us and you can bring your friends. To registration for L.I.F.E, complete the registration form found here, however you don't need to pre-register to come check us out some Sunday evening.
