Dear Sir/ Madam:
Happy Easter! We are pleased to inform you that this summer, the youth have a worthwhile program to attend in the Parish of St. Benedict, Don Antonio Heights, Quezon City. We are currently conducting the Youth Alive Summer Program (Y.A.S.P.).
Youth Alive! is the youth ministry of the Missionaries of God’s Love and is headed by Fr. Brian Steele, mgl, also the youth chaplain of our parish. Fr. Steve Tynan, mgl, our parish priest, and Fr. Geoffrey Coombe, mgl, our assistant parish priest, are resource speakers, along with young volunteers from different communities and ministries in and around the parish.
Each session is packed with songs, presentations, movies, and discussions. We cover topics for Christian youth such as God’s love, Jesus Christ’s life and mission, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the new life that He brings. We teach the youth to pray, dance, sing, and thus enjoy their Christian faith. We also have picnics, games, and outings lined up.
We are inviting everyone from ages 14 to 25 who reside near Don Antonio Heights to join us. So far we have registered 70 85 participants in just three days! We have sessions every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. The sessions started last April 17, 2007 and will end on May 31.
We serve refreshments every session. It is in this light that we seek your support. We are looking for generous sponsors to donate in cash or in kind to cover snacks for approximately 60-80 people. Some people have extended help already, but so far we still need to provide for 11 sessions.
You may get in touch with Nitz at the parish office at 9316521 should you decide to make a contribution to this worthwhile endeavor. You may also visit us during our sessions. Please pray that this program would transform young hearts and minds into passionate, committed followers of our Risen Lord Jesus Christ.
May the Risen Lord be a source of hope for you and your family. Thank you.
Yours in Christ,
