Youth from the St. Charles Borromeo Parish in Meredith baked apple pies and delivered them to seniors in their community.
The following note accompanied each pie:
We, Youth CAT of St. Charles Borromeo Church bring this pie to you as a gift. We want to make a connection between us, the young people and you, our senior community members. We are thinking of you and you are not forgotten by us. We are keeping you in our prayers. Yours in Christ, Youth CAT

Celebrate Youth Leadership is a tremendous opportunity to recognize those who set their hope in the living God through their witness. The event inspires us to continue to serve the young church with enthusiasm and dedication as we strive to include them in the life of our faith communities. This day was celebrated at St. Joseph Cathedral in Manchester on October 20, 2013. Bishop Libasci celebrated the Liturgy of the Word which was followed by an awards presentation and a reception.
Dear young friends:
If we want life to have real meaning and fulfillment, as you want and as you deserve, I say to each one of you, 'Put on faith', and your life will take on a new flavour, it will have a compass to show you the way; 'put on hope' and every one of your days will be enlightened and your horizon will no longer be dark, but luminous; 'put on love', and your life will be like a house built on rock, your journey will be joyful, because you will find many friends to journey with you.
Jesus is the one who brings God to us and us to God.
'Put on Christ!' in your life, and you will find a friend in whom you can always trust; 'put on Christ' and you will see the wings of hope spreading and letting you journey with joy towards the future; 'put on Christ' and your life will be full of his love; it will be a fruitful life.
Under the theme “Chosen,” the Steubenville Youth Conference led teens into a dynamic weekend of prayer, Mass, music, preaching, and talks based on 1 John 4:19: “We love because He first loved us.”
