YOUTH MINISTRY NEWS: The first youth ministry service trip was held on Wednesday, April 12TH to the L’Arche community in Hamilton.  Jean Vanier founded this international federation of communities spread over thirty five countries for those with developmental disabilities and those who care and live with them. Eight youth went to Hamilton, prepared and enjoyed a meal with the core members and prayed with the L’Arche community during the special washing of the feet ceremony. We witnessed the powerful spirit of love, joy and gratitude in the L’Arche community and we will return in the future.
