Youth Leadership Team (YLT)

YLT is beginning as a pilot program this year. We are a team of 6-10 members from the parish, who will actively serve in outreach ministry to the church by working directly with Father Ortega. We will complete projects that Father gives us, and also help Father spread and teach faith, hope, and love throughout our community. We are meant to act as a communication link between Father and the youth of the parish.


“We are excited to get started and actively participate and work with the youth of the GA Parish.”

Read Pope Francis’ August interview!

pope1_0

This interview with Pope Francis took place over the course of three meetings during August 2013 in Rome. The interview was conducted in person by Antonio Spadaro, S.J., editor in chief of La Civiltà Cattolica, the Italian Jesuit journal. Father Spadaro conducted the interview on behalf of La Civiltà Cattolica, Thinking Faith, America and several other major Jesuit journals around the world.

The editorial teams at each of the journals prepared questions and sent them to Father Spadaro, who then consolidated and organised them. The interview was conducted in Italian. After the Italian text was officially approved, a team of five independent experts were commissioned to produce the English translation, which is also published by America.
