NEW LENT PROJECT FOR THE YOUTH
“Go to meet Jesus, be with Him in prayer, entrust yourselves to Him,give your whole life over to His merciful love”
Message from Pope Francis to all Canadian youth, 2017
This call is FOR ALL YOUNG PEOPLE: Catholics, non-Catholics, agnostics, atheists, or the lukewarm in faith.
The Youth Ministry of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Saskatoon invites young people of all ages, regardless of religion and culture, to show their active initiative in this new Lenten project.
Are you willing to experience an encounter with Christ?
Follow these three steps:
STEP 1: Go to the youth forum on saltandlighttv.org/ypfdforum2017 .Listen carefully to the voices of the young people and the message from Pope Francis to all Canadian youth on the occasion of upcoming Synod dedicated to “Young people, the faith, and Vocational Discernment”, which will be held at the Vatican in October of this year.
STEP 2: Reflect on one or more of the Stations of the Cross in the light of the Pope’s message. Write down your reflections and prayers and send them to us (firstname.lastname@example.org, please write in Subject: NEW LENTEN PROJECT). Do not forget to include your full name, age, and contact info (phone number or e-mail). The deadline is April 1, 2018. The Stations of the Cross are listed on the poster below.
STEP 3: Come and participate in the Youth Stations of the Cross, where you will have the opportunity to read your reflections together with lots of other young people and to experience an encounter with Jesus Christ by following Him to His resurrection. This youth “journey” with Jesus through the Stations of the Cross will take place in Saskatoon this year. You will receive the invitation in May.
We also are excited to invite any young people, who decide not to go through the two above-mentioned Steps, to join us in this journey to the cross with Jesus. The information about the day and the time of the Youth Stations of the Cross will be posted in May.
