Message from the Director of the Office of Youth Ministry

Dear Friends,

Happy Lent! I am so excited to share with you all the launch of our Be the Light season! Through this season’s events we are hoping to gather the youth of the Archdiocese of New York to shine a light in the darkness through service, fellowship, and encountering the presence of Jesus Christ.

Join the many opportunities to Be the Light! Whether it be joining local community outreach projects, a retreat day with Fearless Retreats at Graymoor, regional Holy Hours, workshop on wellness and self-care for teens, there are many opportunities to Be the Light! I also hope to see you on March 10thfor our special YM Live Dialogue with His Eminence Cardinal Dolan. Submit your questions now!

Have a blessed Lent!
Cynthia Psencik
Director, Office of Youth Ministry
