St. Francis of Assisi-St. Blaise Youth Participate in Virtual Summer Youth Empowerment and Endurance Program
During the summer, our youth joined youth from other neighboring parishes to participate in an online empowerment program that drew speakers from the United States, Ghana and Trinidad. The theme for the program was : "I can do all things through Christ Jesus who gives me strength", Philippians 4:13. The goal of the  program which was organized by St. Therese of Lisieux Youth Ministry in Brooklyn was to equip young people with the "tools" they needed to face the multifaceted adversity of their time. Youth from our parish included Nefetari, Shyaam, Aaliyah, Roseney, Ashley, Davon, Gordon, Sarah, Denise and Alberta. To read more about this event please follow the link below:
