We had a fantastic beginning to the new year. Our guest speaker was Don Sunit, a civil engineer all the way from Bangalore, India. He spoke to us a little bit about his profession, and narrated an amazing story. The message was simple, God whispers to us every day however if he is not able to capture our attention (primarily because of our distractions) he throws a brick at us. Let us not wait for God to throw a brick at us, but instead respond positively to him every day by doing little acts of kindness (For example: saying “Hello” and “Thank You”) towards our neighbours.
The year 2016 has been exceptional for the group: new members, camps, trips, service projects, game day, celebrations, musical skit etc… If you missed any of it or want to relive the memories, here is a quick video: https://flic.kr/p/PV1HZ1
Please join us as we look forward to an exciting 2017.
Our next meeting: 10am Sat, Jan 14 at Our Lady of Loretto Church. See you soon.
Last Wednesday, our Idente Youth teens tried to find out what is a real purpose of our life.. We started talking about what kind of jobs we want to have in the future. Then, we realized a purpose of life is more than to find our jobs but is to serving God and His people in need everyday. We sincerely shared what to better our lives to fulfill this purpose. We hope you can join us for our next teens' meeting this Wednesday at 6:00pm at St. Dominic's Church. For more information, please call us at (347) 948-3122 or check out our website: www.identeyouth.us. Thanks! (4/20/2016)
Thank you to all that made it to our last IY meeting. The topic of discussion was “Decision Making.” Below were some of the questions we reflected on
· What is the most difficult decision you have made and why? How did you make it?
· How has God guided you to make holy choices in your life?
· What is the formula to make a good decision?
Please note that we will not have IY meeting on Sat, 13 Feb. We will meet again for the Ice-Skating trip on Sat, 20th Feb.
Have a wonderful week!
