MYP Support Day— November 18, 2022, at Holy Trinity Church in Whitestone, NY By Diana Roach

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!
