I have heard people say that our children are the future of our parish, but I say that they are our parish in the here and now. This is why I am so passionate about teaching our youth about God’s love for them. It is our responsibility to form them in ways of the faith by offering them opportunities to experience the love that God has for them personally. Encountering God’s personal love for them was what enticed the first disciples to follow Jesus along the way. It will do the same for all us still today. Once we are caught by God’s love we will want to remain there eternally.”
