NOTE: All World Youth Day Bottle $ Can Collections were scheduled into the calendar, because it’s easier to take them out – than to put them in after the fact. As of this printing, the Portuguese Bishops have not given us dates for the 2022 World Youth Day. When they do, we’ll make our pitch for signup with costs, itinerary, etc. If you want to get on a non-obligatory reminder list about that meeting, call 248 536-1235.
 
March 1 – 7-9 p.m. in the Youth & Young Adult Room – Hot Topics! Bring it on! What is the Church’s argument against revealing what’s said in the Confessional? Is homosexuality wrong? What’s wrong with the theory of evolution? What’s wrong with sex before marriage? Feel free to bring a friend who asks the same questions – and we’ll rock it out in some great discussion that will find you feeling empowered at the end of the night! As always, plenty of deliciousness to eat and drink!
