A year for God… and ourselves!

April 10, 2007
I had the chance to meet earlier this year with three young adults who joined the organizing committee of the 2008 Eucharistic Congress (CEI 2008) in Quebec City. They are part of a special program called "A Year for God." The young people joining the program not only get an amazing work experience, but they also receive solid spiritual formation, live in community, and pray together.
On Tuesday's Catholic Focus (7pm & 11pm ET, repeating on Saturday April 14th also at 7pm & 11pm ET), Alexandre, Charles and Sarah share with me their experience in the "A Year for God" program. Like me, I think you will find it is an intense but exciting experience!
I also invite you to visit the youth section on the CEI 2008 website . The Youth Summit is coming in May -- it could incite some of you to jump in!
