On Friday, November 18, 2022, at Holy Trinity Church, Whitestone, NY, the MYP hosted Support Day. We had a very spirited fun event that night. Thank you to Team Members Jean (Bena) Pedri, Kieran (Carty) Kriegsman, Mary Leavens and Eileen Haggerty for being there. We had a great mix of teens from the 8th grade, Freshman, Sophomores & Juniors.
Our team building activities went very well. The three-legged races were hilarious. The standing up back-to-back was also so fun but way harder— and only one set of teens were able to get up. All the teens still had a great time – lots of laughs.
Jean’s talk (the theme was, “Throughout His life, Jesus gave and needed support”) was a heartfelt, honest and humbling tribute to the MYP. Thank you so much, Jean—you always deliver.
The Tic Tok videos were a hit! The teens really seemed to enjoy working together – having ‘creative freedom.’ Again, there were lots of laughs.
Overall, this was a great event. I am proud to be a part of this team and this group. We are providing the opportunity and the space for young people to really evaluate, consider, question and embrace their faith. What a blessing!
