Youthquake a big success - over 300 young people registered and participated in a weekend retreat with Tim and Raquel from Hard As Nails Ministires from New York and Omar and Lease from the Movement in Barbados. MTV stile retreat with DJ and pure Gospel music rocked the Basseterre High School Auditorium on Friday night, November 9 and that lead to quiet reflection testimonies and Adoration of the Blessed sacrament with the private meeting with the Eucharistic Jesus. Saturday Morning after rousing Morning devotion to the Gospul Music the young people like there was a time to let out our hurts and the powerful witness from Raquel led to many puring out their hearts before others. Some too the opportunity to go to confession. The leeting out the hurts and opening the woulnds led many to tears and healing. After Lunch on Saturday there was a lot of group work and then writing and pinning to a big wooden cross our promises and self-offering to Jesus. The highlight of the day was the GrandRally through the streets of Basseterre, to the musing and rap of Omar and lyrics of Hard as Nails Ministry team. The youth were indeed "on Fire for Christ" in their white T-shirts with the Youthquake emblem in front and "Youth on Fire for Christ" at the back. Sunday mass was the official ending of the Retreat. The Co-cathedral church was full to the brim with young people. many of them stayed with the Retreat team throughout the morning and went for a beach nick in the afternoon. All are looking foraward to the next Youthquake and meanwhile to the Aftershocks which were promised. The first one coming soon.

YOUTH MINISTRY - always new beginnings !

In an effort to facilitate the greater effectiveness of the Youth Ministry towards the vision of empowering our youth for discipleship and service, the parish is establishing three youth group levels, taking into account age, instead of the one group which has been in place: (i) 7 to 12 years (ii) 13 to 19 years (iii) 20 years and over.
All groups are to meet weekly. The '13 to 19 year' group meets on Friday evenings from 7:45 pm, while the '20 years and over' group meets on Saturdays from 4:00 pm. The 'meeting time' of the '7 to 12 year old' group will be announced later. All the groups meet together along with the wider church community on the last Friday of each month from 7:45 pm for the 'Let us...Let God' session.
All Youth Ministries are invited to send three representatives to attend a meeting on next week Thursday, April 19, at 5.00p.m. in the Parish Centre
