SOLEMNITY, OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING OF THE UNIVERSE
NOVEMBER 19-20, 2022

 

The last week of the Liturgical Year is devoted to eschatological themes: Christ the King will restore his kingdom to the Father. The risen people of God will rejoice in a new heaven and a new earth.

November 20 happens to be the World Day of Youth. 

Instituted in 1985 at the conclusion of the International Youth and in conjunction with Saint John Paul II's World Youth Day gatherings, this observance has taken place on Palm Sunday. In 2020 Pope Francis transferred the date to the Solemnity of our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe.

"Young people must say to the world: It is good to follow Jesus! You bring us the joy of faith and tell us that we must live the faith always with a young heart." (Pope Francis)


The Cathedral Youth Ministry will be led by Mark and Anne-Marie Macapinlac, parishioners and volunteer couple.
