CYO Update From Msgr. Diamond:
I am happy to report that several parishioners have responded to the initiative to participate in the CYO board. We are gaining momentum in providing for the youth of our Parish. The CYO Board consists of the President Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Athletic Director, all of which are filled. We are still in need of a chair or chairs for the Service, Social and Spiritual aspect of our CYO activities. If you are interested in leading these efforts, please contact me at the Rectory and I can fill you in on more details. We have advertised for a Youth and Young Adult Minister and received some promising applications. I’ll have more information on this in the very near future.
