Young Adults - Let's Get it Started

So we're all busy with our own personal lives, but I thought this might be a good way for us to connect electronically. We can use this space to discuss upcoming events, service projects, and anything else of general interest.

Some of us met after Mass on Sunday night and there was talk of electing (nominating? appointing?) a few people to lend some structure to this amorphous group of 20- and 30-somethings. There was no huge rush to volunteer. We did decide that Justin and Laura would take on the social-chair title, Mike would be secretary (and keeper of the listserve), and I would be service chair. We're looking for someone to chomp on the big enchilada -- president -- and we would also like to have a faith chair.

In the meantime, we're working on getting a little post-Mass get-together (drinks and hors d'ouevres) planned for 11/20/05. More details to come. We also are encouraging a strong YA attendance at the Parish Christmas Concert on 12/10/05 (8 p.m.). We are also talking about having some kind of 12th Night (Epiphany) fiesta after all the holiday craziness subsides. Finally, we are really hoping that some more young adults volunteer for parish ministries; the church could really use Eucharistic Ministers and lectors, especially as the Christmas season nears. If you are interested, call the Rectory (phone list is at http://www.stedmund.org).
