St Joseph's Young Adult Ministry Activities (see dates below):
FEED THE HOMELESS We RDV at St. Joseph’s to prepare food packs, and then head out into Paris to give them to the homeless
SPIRITUAL NIGHTS OUT
Ladies! Guys! Fun RDVs in Café-Bars. Discussions on various young adult life topics from a faith perspective, plus studies on
the Bible characters. The goal of Nights Out is to fellowship & to continue growing to be Disciples of Christ in our homes,
relationships, families, church and professions.
PRAYER MEETINGS e.g. Lectio Divina, Meditation/Contemplation
HOLY ROSARY PRAYERS – SATs. 5.30pm @ St. Joseph’s considered perfect because within it lies the awesome story of
our salvation, the Holy Rosary is a simple & humble prayer. With the Hail Mary we invite her to pray for us. In every apparition,
the heavenly Mother has invited us to say the Rosary as a powerful weapon against evil and to bring us to true peace.
Promises of Our Lady - Blessings of the Rosary: Souls that thirst are refreshed, the fettered have their bonds broken, the
weeping find happiness, the tempted find peace, the ignorant are instructed, the living learn to overcome pride…
Benefits of the Rosary: gradually brings a perfect knowledge of Jesus Christ, makes the practice of virtue easy, enriches with
graces and merits, and sets us on fire with the love of our Lord...
For all our needs there is a Rosary prayer!
SPORTS MEET Basketball RDVs, Jogging, Ping pong, Zumba etc.
Chartres, World Youth Day, St. Joseph’s church pilgrimages,
OYS Lourdes pilgrimage to take care of the elderly & the sick.
