High School Youth Group

 

Dear young people, let yourselves be taken over by the light of Christ, and spread that light wherever you are.” – Pope St. John Paul II 

 

We can do great things when we are in relationship with Jesus!

Our goal is to introduce the high school students of our parish to this truth and equip them with the tools necessary to preach the Gospel in the four steps provided by YDisciple. 

We start by recognizing that we are loved by God and created to be in relationship with Him. With that truth, we acknowledge that our sin divides us from this communion of love with God. We teach that Jesus “bridges” this divide by dying for each one of us and ransoming us back from death. Finally, we respond to this message with thanksgiving and love by giving our lives over fully to Jesus by building and deepening our personal relationship with Him through the Church, sacraments, and prayer. 

 

We meet Sunday evenings from 7 – 8:30 p.m. in the Parish Convent. Open to all high school students! 

 

We’d love to connect you with our High School Youth Ministry whether you’re a teen, parent or just interested in helping out!

2022 Meeting Dates

We will be studying Salvation History (God’s working throughout time) through the Scriptures with the Great Adventure Bible Timeline provided by Ascension Press.

By encountering God through Scripture, we can develop a relationship with Him and abandon the false perceptions and lies we have of God and experience who He truly is: a loving Father who desires our salvation more than we can ever know.
