23rd Annual Archdiocesan Young Adult Appreciation Banquet

We are proud to announce that Saturday, January 20, 2018 marks our 23rd Annual Archdiocese of Santa Fe Roman Catholic Young Adult Appreciation Banquet. This is a wonderful time for Archdiocesan parishes to recognize and affirm the outstanding service that young adults provide. Many parishes are blessed with young adult’s acts of faith in action.

We invite all parishes to submit two of their outstanding young adults (ages 18 out of high School – 30) to receive a Certificate of Appreciation at the Annual Young Adult Appreciation Banquet. The Certificate of Appreciation is awarded to young adults from the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries.

Please See Attached Recipient Form YA RECIPIENT FORM 2018

 

Young Adults are commonly found serving their parishes as Extraordinary Ministers of the Most Holy Eucharist, Ushers, Lectors, participating in Choirs, Catechists, Youth and Young Adult Ministers, serving in Social Justice Projects, and many other ministries.

Please prayerfully reflect on where young adults are serving in your parish community. Once you have chosen two young adults, who deserve to receive the Certificate of Appreciation, please fill out the attached recipient forms and return them back to the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries. We request that the nomination forms be returned by Monday, January 8, 2018. We also request that you personally inform your recipients of the Appreciation Banquet.

Why do we Kneel?

Why Do Catholic Kneel

Kneeling: Kneeling is the most profound sign of reverence and Roman Catholics kneel at the most sacred points of the Mass. In the United States, Catholics kneel throughout the Eucharistic Prayer, but in Europe and elsewhere, they’re only obligated to kneel during the Consecration. Eastern Catholics, such as the Byzantine, don’t kneel because standing is their normal posture for reverence.
