Hi everyone,

Happy Easter! I hope you had a nice weekend with family and friends!

Some news to share with you this week…

World Youth Day

  • WYD @ Home 2012 wrap-up.

Thank you to all who attended on Saturday, March 31st. We had a great evening.  Thank you to everybody who stepped-up on short notice to assist with the event, especially those who helped with Dinner, music, and to the priests that came to hear confessions! A special thanks to Fr. Martin and Annunciation Parish for hosting us! The Archbishop enjoyed the opportunity to be with everyone there!\

  • WYD Leaders Meeting

There is a WYD Leaders meeting on Tuesday, April 27th from 7:00-9:00 pm in the St. Francis Room at Newman Theological College.  This is an important meeting so please plan on attending if you are the WYD Leader in your parish.  Email me (Andrew) at youth@caedm.ca if you are attending, or contact Danielle at drobanske@caedm.ca. \
