The OYM Goes Global

Ever heard of the Diocese of Roermond? Do you know which country this is actually in?

The Office of Youth Ministry has opened its doors to the people of Holland. We look forward to bulding relationships with them before we meet again next summer. Bishop DeJong of the Diocese of Roermond has graciously arranged for us to spend 5 days with the Dutch Catholic families of his diocese during our pilgrimage to [World Youth Day 2005](/worldyouthday/).

For the first two weeks of August (2004), teens, young adults, and seminarians from Holland will be staying with the Carmelite Sisters of the Divine Heart of Jesus and several host families around St. Louis. Impressed by the vibrant youth of our diocese, they are here to learn more about youth ministry. They will attend training seminars, participate in youth ministry events, and see the sights of St. Louis.

Please welcome and pray for Fr. Hugo, Bart, Suzan, Frederik, Britt, JJ, Monica, Nina, Stephie, Angela, Linda, Gwendolyn, Lawisa, Paula, Mieke, Marc, Guido, Geoffrey, Glenn, and Lars... and please greet them warmly if you meet them!
