We are happy to announce the formation of an additional ministry here in our parish. “Jovenes de Valor” (“Valiant Youth”) is a diocesan bi-lingual youth ministry founded over ten years ago as an offshoot of the charismatic movement and flourishing in many parishes in Brooklyn and Queens, as well as........

in the TV program on Diocesan TV entitled “Too Blessed to be Stressed”. This forms an opportunity in addition to the already existing Jornada youth group on Friday nights, which has so enriched our parish these last two years. The JDV will meet at SMM on Saturday nights under the supervision of the diocesan staff and adult parishioners from our prayer groups, starting off with a retreat night on Sunday June 27 from 4 to 9 PM. We are happy to offer this opportunity for growth in faith to our young people, in keeping with the priorities outlined in our recent Parish Assembly and parish planning process.
