ST JOHN BOSCO YOUTH PRESENTS "THE CARPENTER'S APPRENTICE"
Members of Presentation Ministries' youth group have written and are directing an original play entitled, The Carpenter's Apprentice. The three-act play will be performed by many of the young people who are a part of the PM families and St John Bosco Youth Group.
If you have been to one of the plays in the past, you know the talent, time, and dedication that go into these productions. You will want to attend and experience the joy and gifts that these devoted teens share with us.
The many young people who take part in the performance are talented, enthusiastic and committed to the Lord. Be sure to come and join us for this awe-inspiring theatrical production. The play will be offered Monday evening at 7:30 PM. The location will be at Roger Bacon High School auditorium in St Bernard, Ohio. Buses will be available at the Xavier campus for those who do not know the Cincinnati area. A free-will offering will be taken at the performance.
Deacon Ralph Poyo will present a day centered on living by genuine faith as shown by looking at the lives of the Patriarchs. For example, Abraham was a great man of faith which is still a blessing to us today. Deacon Ralph will point out the choice to be made. There are two paths ahead -- which path will you take? Will you leave the world behind or will you give in to Satan's plan for your life? The day will include music, praise, worship, group activities and discussion.
