ABIDE: Youth Ministry Days of Reflection

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing (Jn 15:5).  



Scripture reminds us of the importance of having a relationship with Christ and nurturing it through prayer, consistent reading of Scripture, receiving the Sacraments, and worship at Mass. However, it can be hard to remain in Him when there are many other distractions, temptations and priorities that try to grab our attention. We invite you to take a day to discover what it truly means to abide in Christ.  By knowing and loving Him (abiding in Him) we are better able to serve Him through our vocation.  


When/where is it?

  • October 30th at St. John's Community Center in Brunswick from 10am-5pm

  • October 31st at St. John's Church in Bangor 9:30am-4:30pm
