Vacation Bible School begins Monday July 13! Every Monday beginning Monday July 13 – Monday August 10 a new set of videos will be posted on the St. Julie Billiart and St. George websites, for you to watch and discuss with your family at your convenience. Don’t worry if you miss a week, we will keep all the videos up until Late August!
The videos will include; skits about the topic or story of the week, Bible lessons and reflections, Craft tutorials, and Dance lessons. The videos will be presented by our D.O.C.K. Youth Ministry teens and a few special guests as well. The videos will be available on both of the parish websites.
Our theme this year is Message Received: Hearing God’s Call. Over the course of 5 lessons, 1 each week, participants will hear different stories about people in the Bible who were called at different points in Salvation History to rise up and help build God’s Kingdom. From Samuel to the early Apostles, kids and families will learn about the variety of ways we can hear God’s Voice in the world around us.
T-shirts will be available to order for $ 10. If you are interested in a T-shirt let Holly know by July 20, 2020, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you enjoy the work that our teens put into the videos and they lead to lively and fruitful conversations in your home. We would love to hear from you! If you want to show off what you are learning, feel free to send pictures or videos to Holly at email@example.com so we can post them for others to see!
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul,
firm and secure. Hebrews 6: 19
We are excited to announce that the youth group of St. George and St. Julie Billiart will have a new name! We are all striving to become disciples of Jesus and since that is our mission we want to reflect this in our name. We are asking our Blessed Mother, Mary Star of the Sea, to be our patroness and Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati to be our patron. Mary, of course, was the first disciple of Jesus and is a wonderful role model to all of us. Blessed Pier was a young man who loved Christ very much and showed it in his devotion to daily Mass and helping the poor. He is a great role model to the young especially as he was young and adventurous but he always put Christ first. We strive to be like both of these Saints and we ask their intercession and prayers along with yours as we grow in our faith and take our love for Jesus “to the heights”.

It breaks my
we will not be
able to do our
with Young Neighbors In Action
as planned before the
Coronavirus crisis. They have
cancelled all trips this year, but
we will continue to serve now
and in a larger sense when we
are back together. We will find
ways to serve those in our own
backyard who need assistance
and we will look ahead to the
future with joy and hope!
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING YOUTH MINISTRY BY STOPPING BY OUR SUMMER CAR WASHES!!!
