As the Diocese concluded its Year of Youth observance with a June 21 Mass of Thanksgiving in St. Aloysius Church, Jackson, special appreciation was extended to those who volunteered their time and talents for helping to make “this year a successful year.”

“You said ‘yes,’ and your ‘yes’ has impacted the lives of hundreds upon hundreds of our young people who were gathered at different events throughout the year,” Father Martin O’Reilly, principal celebrant of the Mass and homilist, said to the youth and adult volunteers and their families who were present for the Mass.
