We had a fabulous meeting this morning, thank you to all of you that showed up. Our topic of discussion was “Talents,” it was presented by Alex. Talent was defined as “a natural skill that is given to man to show that they are special.” We were informed that all of us (yes…no exceptions) have a talent. Small tiny little qualities of making people laugh, or convincing friends are talents. Talents come as a natural gift, from hard work, doing things you love, and from being yourself. Ultimately they come from God.
So, what is your TALENT(S) ? how are you using them ?
Kudos to Alex for an astounding presentation.
Everyone is born with some special talent…
Last Wednesday, we got to know more about what Idente Youth is. Based on this, we made a poster about different chapters of Idente Youth in the world, meanings of its symbols and Idente Youth values. The purpose of the poster was to inform them of the purpose of our weekly meeting and the sense of belonging to the whole Idente Youth in the world. Then, some of us shared their resolution to live out Idente Youth values.
Our teens discussed how to defend human life and its
from conception to natural death.
Next week, our teens plan to share examples of music, art, and videos that defend and showcase the beauty of human life.
It has been sometime since we last posted about our meetings. Better late than never J
On Jan 21, we had Johnny and Anthony collaborating to present the seminar on “Courage.” Courage was defined as “Putting yourself at risk for some higher purpose.” We were enlightened on the positive results of courage and the ways in which we could cultivate this virtue. At the following two IY meetings (Jan 28 & Feb 4), we watched a 1985 American classic movie, “The Breakfast Club.” The storyline follows five teenagers, each a member of a different high school clique, who spend a Saturday in detention together and come to realize that they are all more than their respective stereotypes, while facing a strict disciplinarian.
Our next meeting: 10am Sat, Feb 11 at Our Lady of Loretto Church. Please note that we will have Marianne Sheridan, the director of youth, young adults & campus ministry in the diocese of Rockville center visiting us to present the Midnight Run project. Hence please make a special effort to be present at this Saturdays meeting.
See you on Saturday!
