Ministry to Youth - the Family and the Church

May 12th, 9 am-3 pm at St. Mark's Church

On May 12th, we will welcome 2 speakers/teachers to help us begin to think through these questions and more (The Reverend Brian Foos, Headmaster of St. Andrew's Academy, Lake Almanor, Ca) and The Reverend John Boonzaaijer (Rector of the Chapel of the Cross, Dallas, and Headmaster of The St. Timothy School).

You need not have children at home to attend - the body of Christ is an inter-generational family and all of you are invited to play a role in the instruction, care and formation of the children and young adults of our parish. If you are interested in "the next generation" of Christian disciples - please consider joining us.

Our day will begin at 9 am with Holy Communion and end at 3 pm with Evening Prayer. A more detailed agenda will be available in coming weeks. Lunch will be provided and onsite childcare is available - if you let us know ahead of time.

RSVP by May 5th to Fr. Patterson (jsspatterson@gmail.com or 215-884-7660).
