NETWORK Workshop: Through God’s Eyes and Heart – Towards a Spirituality and Mission of Compassion and Inclusion with and for young people
May 2, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
A virtual series for leaders and volunteers in Youth, Young Adult, and Family & Children Ministries.
Young people are in the centre of the mission of Jesus. St. Alphonsus was convinced that they are already in the very heart of God’s concern for the ‘World’. St. Alphonsus offers us a rich spirituality of personal relationship with Jesus so that we come to ‘see with God’s eyes’ all those who experience abandonment, hurt, exclusion as our brothers and sisters – embraced in the ‘heart of God’. This helps us to respond with compassion and can sustain us over the long haul as we reach out to young people and others.
