20s Group: Year of Growing

As Camille summed it up yesterday about 20s Group, "the first year of the group was a year of learning, it is now a year and this is the year of growing". And personally I believe she is correct in this assumption. It has been close to a year since the group was founded and yes we are still small, we knew this was a learning process for all of us.

20s Group CORE team meeting went well, pretty much we focused on trying to outreach to other 20-something/Young Adult groups in the diocese, but also outreach in other ways, like contacting St. Gabriel's Catholic Radio 820AM and seeing if they could help us in our growth as a group.

With that being said we discussed that we must not try to get our PGC (Protect God's Children) done, that way we can volunteer and then interact with soon-to-be graduating High School Seniors and see if they would like to look into coming to some of the meetings. I think there will be interest, if we outreach.

Which to my joy I have started a little by contacting or really speaking to someone I know who is working for 820AM and hopefully with many prayers something will happen.

Another thing we did focus on was how we need as a group attain more long-term goals and not short-term. As our president stated, "I don't want anyone to get burned out." It is true we haven't really looked into long-term goals at all. I am hoping with some ideas I did send our President and another team member there will be some goals.

Please everyone keep the Saint Patrick's 20s Group in your prayers. Our Year of Growing begins....
