Our Youth Ministry for Middle School (EDGE) & Youth Ministry for High School (LIFE TEEN) evening gatherings include prayer, dinner, music, and games, all in a welcoming and safe atmosphere. The program goal is to allow youths the opportunities to learn about and encounter the Lord personally, and to take that love into the world.
Our Parish joins an organizational family of 1800+ parishes around the world with a mission to “Lead Teens Closer to Christ.” Since 1985, Edge and Life Teen ministries have been reaching out to teens around the world, and we are excited to be a part of it.
Life Teen is an international Catholic movement for high school teens that provides resources and faith experiences that help lead them closer to Christ. Our 9th-12th graders meet on Sunday nights for “Life Nights” where teens learn about their Catholic faith, challenge current social issues, experience vibrant prayer times, and have fun! We also take part in various service projects within our parish and in the community throughout the year. During the summer, we offer various community building and social activities such as bible study, a summer retreat to Camp Cove Crest, a Summer Lock-In event, and serving at our summer Vacation Bible School. Whatever high school you attend, all high school teens and their friends are always welcome.
If you would like to serve the youth as a Core Team Member for LIFE TEEN or if you are a parent who would like to help, please contact Monica Bonfe Erickson.
