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 will meet on Sunday nights beginning with the Mass at 6:00 p.m., followed by ” Life Nights” where teens learn about their Catholic faith, challenge current social issues, experience vibrant prayer times, and have fun!

 There are also various service opportunities, retreats, and events that we will participate in during the year.  Additionally, the teens are the backbone of the week-long Vacation Bible School (VBS) program held in the third week of June each year. Matthew 28, tells us to go and make Disciples of all nations. Our goal is to bring the teens and their families into a relationship with Christ that will ignite their faith and give them zeal to be Christ to the world!  Watch the parish bulletin and web site for dates and information! Come be a part of Life Teen here at St. Patrick’s!
