Youth Ministry

We are a Catholic Youth Ministry for High School and Middle School teens. We do EDGE Middle School youth ministry and LIFE TEEN High School youth ministry.

We offer a youth Mass on Sundays at 5:00 PM followed by LIFE TEEN and EDGE. (September - May)

Upcoming Events:   

Edge

All 6th-8th graders are invited to join us in the youth room from 6-8 pm. The cost is $3 for dinner. Our first series this year will take a look at the Fruits of the Holy Spirit through the lens of superheroes. Every night we have a few games, a talk, small groups to talk about how the message applies to our lives, and we close in prayer.

In March we will begin our new series, “Epic,” which will take a closer look at the Creed.

Spring 2017

Life Teen

All 9th-12th graders are invited to join us on Sunday nights from 6-8 pm. Dinner is provided at no cost. We meet in the youth room or if Edge is happening then we meet in the gym (teens can come through the youth room to get there). 

Spring 2017

**Please note that the mission trip has historically filled up by mid-February. Also, new this year, unless there is an emergency, we will not be allowing teens to come late or leave early. There are a few reasons for this, but one of them came about after reflecting on a quote from St. Theresa of Calcutta, For love to be real, it must cost, it must hurt, it must empty us of self.” The mission trip should cost us and for some that means making a sacrifice of time or convenience or the enjoyment of getting to the beach a day sooner. For your planning, we will go to Mass together on Saturday, June 24th, eat pizza and have a pre-trip meeting, and pack the cars. On June 25th, we will leave in the morning and on July 1st, we will arrive sometime in the early afternoon. If you have any questions or concerns then Bethany is happy to talk more about it. Thank you!
