NCYC SIGN AT LOS! 

 

Friday morning we learned about the Saints and those who are on their way to Sainthood. 
We learned about their response to God's call to Christ. 
They reminded us to LIVE our lives in SERVICE of our GOD! 
The focus was on Thea Bowman, Venerable Pierre Toussant, Blessed Pierre Geogio Frassati, St. Joselito Sanchez del Rio, St. Tersa of Los Andes, St. Kateri Tekekwitha, St. Andrew Dung-Lac, St. Maximilian Kolbe, and St. Damien of Molokai!
Our keynote speaker was Sr. Miriam James Heidland. She was fantastic!


Enjoying the thematic park by painting with our fabulous chaperones!  A big thank you to the three chaperones. This year the thematic village was called:  From Sea to Shining Sea!
We have the freedom in our country to share, express, and live our Catholic Faith! 
God is calling each of us to deepen our relationship with him and to be of service to others.  How is God calling you now???

 
I think he found the perfect T-shirt!

Coming home!  Happy to be coming home but grateful for the 3 days of truly feeling the presence of Christ! NCYC was amazing, we were educated, inspired and entertained!

So now the trip is over. We head back to our normal routines... the daily grind. 
Please take the time to think about your favorite memory of NCYC?

Has this trip changed you somehow? 
What can you do as a family to keep the spirit of NCYC alive? 

Remember you..... were CALLED!
