On Friday, May 9, the Maronite Servants of Christ the Light hosted the monthly MYO gathering for the teens of the Our Lady of Purgatory Parish at the Mother of Light Convent in Dartmouth.
The theme of the night’s discussion was sacrificial love, based on the movie, Frozen. This movie portrays a number of Christian themes, such as love for the other, persevering trust, mercy, compassion, and forgiveness. The teens entered into a good discussion with a focus on how to best identify and demonstrate true love in our lives.

The theme was on the season of the Glorious Resurrection, and our Maronite devotion to the Blessed Mother during May. The children did a craft creating the resurrection scene, followed by a decade of the rosary and May Crowning. We concluded with a celebration enjoying games, pizza and cake.
