Resurrection Youth Ministry Update

Welcome to the 2010-2011 Season!

The Resurrection Youth Ministry program will begin meeting again every Sunday after the 5:30 pm Mass (around 6:45 pm) starting on Sunday, September 12. Our program runs from September to May and ALL high  school students are invited to join. Don’t miss out on active social events,  retreats & lock-ins, and opportunities to openly explore your faith, allowing it to grow as you face the day to day challenges of high school. For more information about the program and how to register, please visit our blog at or call the RYM office at (408) 490-0575. You can also visit us on Facebook at http://

Youth & Young Adult Mass:  The highly energetic RYMsponsored  youth & young adult Mass is back! Our first Y&YA Mass for the 2010-2011  season will be on September 12, at the 5:30 pm Mass. We are looking for high school students and young adults who would be interested in helping to serve in the various liturgical ministries for the Mass. There are lots of opportunities to participate so it’s easy to find one that you’ll be most comfortable with. Choose from ushering, proclaiming The Word (reading), Eucharistic Ministering, greeting people at the doors, bringing our gifts up to the altar, leading the prayer during the general intercessions & petitions, and singing in our choir. Remember that the more people we get involved, the more fantastic our celebration will be! Don’t feel like signing-up? Join us for Mass anyway! As always, ALL are welcome. For more information and to sign-up, please see our contact information listed below.

Parent Information Night: RYM director Jonathan Luu will host an information night on Sunday, September 19 at 6:45 pm in the main Church for all those interested in learning about the upcoming 2010-2011 RYM season. Jonathan will cover calendars, schedules, program costs, program expectations for parents, students, and adult volunteers, and also share in detail the program’s vision and goals. This  meeting is geared towards parents and adult volunteers but ALL are welcome to attend.

Fall Bake Sale: RYM will be hosting a bake sale on Sunday, September 26 after the 8:30, 10, and 11:30 morning Masses, and the 5:30 pm evening Mass. All proceeds and donations will go towards funding our annual trip to the LA Religious Education Congress “Youth Day” as well as the Diocese of San Jose Tahoe Retreat. Please help make these trips financially possible for our high school teens by donating baked goods, buying any of the tasty treats after one of the Masses, or by making a financial contribution directly. Your past generosity has allowed students — who otherwise would not have been able to attend–to experience life-changing retreats and conferences.
