Prayers Needed!
Between now and October, let us join in prayer for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the youth of our diocese.

  • May their hearts be open to say “YES!” to the Holy Spirit’s invitation to attend YOUTH 2000.
  • May their guardian angels travel before them to prepare the holy place in which they will meet Our Lord and Our Lady, Mother of Mercy.
  • May their parents, recognizing the power this grace-filled retreat holds for their beloved sons and daughters, bring them and their friends into the presence of Our Lord at YOUTH 2000.

Let us remember our youth in prayer at Mass, in holy hours of Eucharistic Adoration, by seeking the intercession of our Blessed Mother when saying the rosary, and by praying the Chaplet for an outpouring of Divine Mercy on those most in need of healing and peace.
