CATHOLIC Pope John Paul II said that the new evangelization would be Eucharistic, said Monique Claverie, co-director of Awak- en Ministry in the Upper Pen- insula. Truly, Awaken seeks to cultivate a love of Christ in the real presence of the Eucharist. St. Mary Queen of Peace Parish in Kingsford recently kicked off a new evangeliza- tion ministry focused on an encounter with Christ through Eucharistic Adoration. This is done through praise and wor- ship music, dynamic preach- ing, and culminates with what organizers hope is a profound experience of Eucharistic Ad- oration. The first Awaken event was a great experience, said Becky Diercks who participated in the inaugural event earlier this month. I had heard a lot about it, but still wasnt sure what to expect. During the evening I realized how busy I had been and needed that time to slow down and be with Jesus, to really worship and praise him. The evenings are held once a month and open to everybody of all ages. The first event was held on June 4 and attracted everyone from young children to the elderly. But, according to Angela Fornetti, who co-directs with Claverie, its targeted towards youth and young adults. What we are really trying to do is draw back our young adults, our youth that are falling away from Christ and the Catholic Church, said Fornetti. While we welcome everyone, we are trying to bring people back to the Church. The first series titled, Encounter Him, will JAMIE GUALDONI THE U.P. CATHOLIC Monique Claverie and Angela Fornetti stop for a photo following the first Awaken Ministry event held earlier this month. Claverie and Fornetti co-direct the ministry.
