Youth Ministry

from Fr. Chad King on July 5, 2015

You might remember that about a month or so ago, I announced that after much prayer, observing, and consulting with others, I had decided to move Youth Ministry in a new direction. I thanked Bonnie Vance and Bill Price for their service to the Youth of Corpus Christi. An interview board and I (which included, Denise, a high school teen, and a parent) set out to interview several good candidates. I am happy to announce that the top candidate we interviewed, Anthony Janus, accepted the position to become the new Coordinator of Youth Ministry. He will be in charge of the Junior High and High School programs, as well as oversee the Young Adult ministry. Anthony just graduated from Ave Maria University with a degree in Theology and has a deep love for our Lord, His Church, and desires to lead teenagers to come to know Him intimately. And providentially, his girlfriend, who also just graduated from Ave Maria, just got a job in Phoenix and so Anthony was looking for a Youth Ministry position in Phoenix. I just love how God provides when we are seeking His will. I am so excited for our Teenagers to grow closer to our Lord and His Church, and to each other in strong fellowship. I will have him introduce himself at all the Masses in August, but in the meantime here is a little introduction from Anthony. Teenagers and parents, please be on the look out for a letter from Anthony that will allow him to meet you and get your input about the Youth Ministry at Corpus Christi.

Greetings Corpus Christi Parish!

"As a dry land thirsts for water, so my soul thirsts for you my God." These words have been on my mind and heart as I have journeyed physically and spiritually in preparation to join and serve in this parish community. To give you a little bit of background about myself, I am originally from Starkville, Mississippi, and am most recently coming from working and studying at Ave Maria University in Southwest Florida. I have been involved in youth ministry in various capacities over the last six years, and have found it to be such a joyful and rewarding calling. I enjoy sports, games, and various forms of competition, and I can't wait to explore Arizona. I have also discovered in myself a previously unexamined appreciation for grass and humidity. Yet, in moments of nostalgia for such things, the words from above echo within me. I am most excited for the new ways in which the Lord desires to work in my life and for the new ways that he is calling me to participate in his work. I am blessed and so honored by the invitation to help and participate in communicating the Lord's love to our youth and our parish, and I so look forward to meeting and journeying with many of you in our walk with the Lord! Please grant me the opportunity to meet you soon, if you have the chance!

May the Lord ever increase our thirst for Him,
Anthony Janus

Gluten Free Hosts are available

If you are one of the people who has Celiac disease, or who needs to receive Gluten Free hosts at Mass, we have them available. We also have a special ciborium for them so they will not touch the regular hosts. Before Mass, please tell the Mass Captain in the Sacristy that you need a Gluten Free host to be Consecrated. The priest will have this special ciborium (attached to a regular ciborium). So please make sure you sit in the section the priest distributes Communion to, and please also make yourself known to the priest before Mass so he can be aware of who you are, or simply remind him when you come to receive Holy Communion that you need the Gluten Free host.
