CAPTIVATING THE YOUTH FOR CHRIST
St Mary Parish is partnering with Damascus Mission Campus to bring Jesus Movement to our community! Jesus Movement is an encounter with Christ and our Catholic faith in an energetic environment; it is led by young adult missionaries who understand what it is like being a teen in today's world.
Jesus Movement will meet on Sunday evenings 3 times a month at St Mary Parish from 6-8pm. One Sunday a month, all parishes participating in High School Jesus Movement will meet at St. Catherine's in Bexley.

Sunday Nights at 6-8pm
All Confirmation students (7th/8th grade) in the parish are asked to attend our Sunday Night Middle School Youth Ministry nights of Jesus movement! A Damascus missionary is running these evenings and they will be a great time of formation and fellowship for all Confirmation students, both in the school and PSR formation students.
We strongly encourage those in the St. Mary School to also attend the Jesus Movement Middle School Formation nights for fun fellowship and formation with their peers in the parish community. The Highschool Youth Ministry Jesus Movement will also be happening at this time on Sunday. We hope that Confirmation students will build friendships and community that will continue after 8th grade, as they go into high school and attend Youth Ministry Nights on Sundays after Confirmation.
We continue to pray for your Confirmandi student and your family during this important year of formation. We are excited for the year, and will see you soon!
