Meet Our New Archbishop
at Youth Recognition Sunday
October 28, 2001

The following is from Brian's email "Young Adults Invited to Meet New Archbishop!" dated 10/22/01:

Greetings from Brian, the new director of Young Adult Ministry for the Archdiocese of Newark. To all young adults (ages 18-39) in the Archdiocese:

This Sunday, October 28 (yes, the same day as the U2 concert), the Archdiocese will celebrate "Youth Recognition Sunday."

The celebration will be the first time the new Archbishop, John J. Myers, will "officially" encounter the youth and young adults of the Archdiocese of Newark, and we want this event to be a hum-dinger!

It will take place at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark, beginning at 2:30 p.m. with Praise and Worship, followed by a VIBRANT Mass at 3 p.m.

During the event, several youths (not yoots) and young adults will receive Archdiocesan awards for dedication to peer and youth ministry. Two national awards will also be presented... one youth will receive the "Eagle of the Cross" award, and a youth minister will receive the "For God and For Youth" award.

Also **(but don't say anything to the Archbishop), the youth and young adults of the Archdiocese will present a welcome gift to the Archbishop during the ceremony.

Please make an effort to be there, and bring friends! Let's show the Archbishop what kind of noise we can make, even if U2 is not on the stage!

Anyone interested in helping as an usher or greeter during the celebration should contact us via email or phone by Wednesday.

Thanks again for your support. We hope to see you there. God Bless!
