MYO is back!
On Friday September 21st at 7:00PM we had our first MYO meeting at Our Lady of Purgatory, New Bedford. It has been eight years since the parish had an MYO. We had eight eager teens attend the meeting and more to come! It was a fun and eventful evening as we introduced the teens to what MYO is and gave them an opportunity to express what they would like to see in their meetings.
We had different faith activities, ice-breakers, and minute-to-win-it games to kick off our first meeting. Abouna Jack Morrison, pastor, led the group in prayer, and spoke to them about the nature of prayer as talking to God, loving him, thanking him, asking for his help, and forgiveness. Our next meeting is Friday October 19th for a night out at laser tag.
On Sunday 23rd September, the Divine Liturgy was offered in thanksgiving for Fr. Jack Morrison, and in celebration of his 20th anniversary of priesthood. Our prayers, love and support are with you Abouna! May God grant you many more years of health and fruitful ministry.
