Young Adult Easter Event, Pascua Juvenil

April 04, 2012

Pascua means Passover, the ‘step’ of Jesus from death to life. Pascua is an Easter celebration for young Hispanics, which is marked with a day of service, prayer, music and celebration of community in Christ. The theme of this year’s Pascua is from Pope Benedict XVI’s Lenten message, calling for charity, which he describes as “the very heart of Christian life.”

These celebrations will provide the young Hispanic participants with an opportunity to reflect upon an encounter with the living Christ through service projects, presentations, and a celebration of music and food. The participants will also learn about social justice and missions, as well as about how to become more involved in the Church. Service projects this year will include volunteering at the Spanish Catholic Center, a local shelter, feeding the needy, and helping to perform small home maintenance tasks in the homes of the needy in the community. The event concludes with Mass.
