Weekly Mutterings.      The National Catholic Youth Conference is a three day event for Catholic young people, held in a U.S. City every two years. Last year it took place in Indianapolis, and more than 23,000 young adults participated. Several teens from St. Barnabas were there, and greatly enjoyed and benefited from the experience. It is very important that our young parishioners be given such opportunities to participate in Catholic youth events around the country and closer to home, because they gain an appreciation of the wider Church, and that the Church belongs to them and has need of their gifts. They see that their peers from other places are practicing their faith and active in their own parishes. That is what we want for the families of St. Barnabas, and what Maryellen Harrington and our youth ministry is working very hard to accomplish.

This year, three members of our parish Youth Club applied to be members of the Pastoral Council of the Archdiocese of Chicago, which includes a special group of young adults in its membership. Two of them – Brendan Gregory and Quinn Gregory - were selected from among all the parishes to take their place on the Council. (They are kneeling in the foreground of the above picture.) They had their first meeting a couple weeks ago with the Council, and Cardinal George was present. Brendan and Quinn were very impressed that the Cardinal was so interested in them and their ideas and opinions. To their surprise and delight, he even took notes!

In the name of all the people of St. Barnabas, I congratulate Brendan and Quinn for their willingness to serve the people of our parish and larger Church. I expect that they will learn many important things, and have much to share with us from their experience. In the meantime, please know that many good things are happening between and among the youth of our parish because of the important efforts of the St. Barnabas Youth Ministry Program. It is alive and growing, and worth knowing about. It needs the help of a few committed adults, and the prayers of us all, to assure the well-being of the next generation of committed and faith-filled Catholics.
