Welcome to SJV Youth.

 Mission Appreciation weekend is October 4-5.   Our annual power point presentation will be shown after Masses~ Come and prepare to be inspired by what our young people do on behalf of our brothers and sister locally and globally.  Faith in ACTION!

NEW NEW NEW!!  but actually OLD!  Operation Sacklunch is celebrating 25 years of feeding the hungry in downtown Seattle.  Our youth group was the first to commit to regular provision of lunches back in 199X.   There are now 4 downtown locations in which OSL serves hot meals but that doesn’t include dessert (logistically not possible in the kitchens).  That is where SJV youth and our broader community come in.   We are excited to announce the year of the “KIRKLAND COOKIE MONSTERS”!   We plan to provide 150 dozen home made cookies/ cupcakes, cakes… (dessert in many forms) once a month.   We have a ‘chocolate chip fund’ if you’d like to help us with the cost.   We begin Sunday, Sept 14 from noon to ??    If you can help deliver on Monday morning, we could use your help!~  SWEET DEAL for all.

Middle and Senior High Youth group regular meetings  begin in October.  Stay tuned to your email for the calendar.   jkline@sjvkirkland   All are welcome.

Confirmation for 2015 begins with the first youth group meeting in October.  Candidates attend all senior high youth group meetings plus a once a month Confirmation meeting starting in January.  The sacrament will be celebrated in May.   We are in need of additional adult small group leaders.  Join us for a faith growing experience that includes an opening mini retreat and a wonderful final 2 night retreat at Camp Hamilton.

Our grace filled summer treks are complete.  Gratitude abounds !  Joe Byrne, Mary & Ken Goodwin, Greg Leptich, & Caitllin Terashima formed the chaperone team for Esperanza Tijuana.  YMP thanks to Mary & Ken Goodwin, Jan Fenelon.  Joe Byrne and Sonia Camero came on Wednesday to help in the food bank and beyond.

Confirmation team is being created.     Faith is best taught by models of deeply held, joyful faith.  Please let me know if you would be willing to share your faith for our January to May 2015 class.
