Youth Ministry: LifeTeen and EDGE Off and Running!


Both of our Youth Ministry groups made a strong return to regularly scheduled meetings in September.

Our Senior High Youth Ministry program – LifeTeen:  Leading Teens Closer to Christ – serves parishioners in grades 9 through 12.  They meet each Sunday night.  All teens are invited to join the group for the 5:30pm Sunday Mass and then move to the Parish Life Center for the LifeTeen gathering from 6:30 to 8:30pm.  You are also welcome to attend an earlier Mass with your family and just join the group at 6:30pm.  Meetings begin with dinner and include social activities, prayer, faith sharing, reflection, and fun.

Our Junior High Youth Ministry program – EDGE – has moved to Wednesday evenings and serves students in 7th and 8th grades. We welcome all 7th and 8th grade parishioners – those who attend St. Francis of Assisi School, those who attend the Parish Religious Education program, and those who may receive their religious education elsewhere.   The theme for this semester is “Superheroes,” and the participants have already played LaserTag, donned superhero capes, and learned about the heroic virtues of a disciple of Jesus Christ.  EDGE gatherings begin at 7:00pm and end at 8:30pm – all in the Parish Life Center.
