SFM Youth Group Rally in South Dakota!
The SFM Youth Group attended a Diocesan Youth Rally recently! We took 11 youth (7 middle school/4 high school) to the rally – leaving Saturday, and returning late Sunday evening.
We had a warm welcome from the staff of the Diocese on Sunday. Our Youth Group stood out because of the size of our group and our awesome t-shirts! The group split up with our middle school youth attending some sessions and our high school youth attending others.
One of the presentations at the Rally was about “doing greater things.” The presentation spotlighted several saints and one of them was Saint Katharine Drexel, so the staff talked about how she gave support to the St. Francis mission. Our group was introduced as coming from St. Francis! Everyone clapped for them, they were excited about being mentioned during the rally! We also attended Mass with Bishop Gruss, and our Religious Education Director, Jenny Black Bear, served as Eucharistic Minister at the Mass.
The Youth Rally was a great learning experience for our youth! We appreciate the support that we were given to be able to attend!
