Members of Queen of Angels Confirmation & Youth Ministry took this week of vacationing to do a spiritual pilgrimage to the Parish of St Michael & St Malachy in Brooklyn, to visit the Old House where Fr Solanus Casey used to live, be the Porter, and help the needy of the area.
As Queen of Angels Youth Ministry has been going through a renewal, we decided to start the year on the Theme of “Holiness”. Q of A Youth Ministry has been working on plans to promote the Vocation to Holiness - since our youth are in preparation to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation - they choose a Saint to talk with them, to guide and pray for them. But that’s not enough - like having lots of great friends, the more saints you have blessing you, the closer you get to Christ. The friends of Jesus will always draw bring you to the Lord.
At the Dreamers Club, the main spiritual youth group for Queen of Angels Youth Ministry, members are watching the “Green Lantern: Animated Series”, while using prayer of the Rosary, and reflections on Sacred Scripture & Catechesis on Sainthood, as well as their calling within the Church.
Learning and visiting places that Saintly Men and Women lived is a great spiritual journey for teens to enter into the Life, Passion, Death, and Resurrection of our Lord. Why? The Saints give us a reason for believing in Christ.
We want Fr Brendan P. Buckley, OFM Cap, Brandon Morel (YM), and Vanessa Garcia (DRE) for welcoming us to their parish and showing us around the house. If you’re Director of Religious Education, a Youth Minister,
or Leader - make plans to take your members to this place for prayer, or small retreat. Check their website at
Pray for us, as we will be praying for you. Blessed Solanus Casey, pray for us.
