Hello, all, and Blessed Theophany!
Christ is in our midst!
On December 30, 2011, more than 60 teens from 10 parishes attended a deanery-wide retreat at St. Luke in Garden Grove. They listened to three speakers: Fr. Michael Laffoon, Fr. Michael Tassos, and myself. It was a blast of an event, and I was greatly encouraged to see the crowd that it drew.
I am hoping that we will continue to have events like this, as I believe it really brought up a lot of material for conversation and invited many into the reality of living in community of the Church.
Here is a video with some highlights from the day! Hope you enjoy it!

On Wednesday (November 2), I had the privilege of sitting down with the teens at St. Peter and asked them their thoughts on the youth group at their church. These teens are bright, articulate, and incredibly hilarious, but I won’t say much more; check out the video for yourself!
