An artist walks among us

Hey hey dear readers. Sorry for the tardy updates. Been rather busy lately. But I'm back to highlight to you, the blogging community, that there's an artist among us.

Evan, server Mark's brother, is a design grad and has started up a blog on art and such complicated stuff which is totally beyond my limited intellect =)

Check out his blog here:

Evan, as some of you might remember, is the designer of such artistic stuff as our parish Marian processional canopy, shown with the artist below.


Evan also designed our Advent Wreath.The design


The final product.



He's also the leader of our parish Youth Ministry and had organized the ICYM Gives Back Christmas concert in Dec (which will be highlighted on these pages soon).

I'm very happy with the progress the ICYM has made thus far and I'm also impressed with forthcoming the plans they have. As a previous leader of our parish youth ministry (and as others who have been involved in youth work can testify), it takes a great deal of commitment, perseverance, hard work and sheer luck in order to have a successful youth ministry which builds up and trains young people, equipping them to be disciples who will come back and serve the Church once the food, games and music stops. It's even harder than it sounds, so they need all the encouragement they can get as they step up to take the place of us young fogeys as the new future of the Church.

So, do drop by Evan's blog and drop him a comment of encouragement.
