Youth Ministry



COVID Safety Information:

For your safety and the safety of all of our youth group participants and families, the following guidelines will be in place for both Life Teen and Edge meetings:

- All meetings will be held outside, weather permitting. If a meeting is moved inside, there will be extra care in maintaining social distancing.

- Meeting will be moved to 5:00-6:30 to take advantage of daylight.

- All students will be required to maintain a safe social distance and wear a mask throughout the meeting.

- Hand sanitizer and disposable masks will be available, but please feel free to bring your own!

- Dinner is suspended until further notice, but we will have individually packaged snacks available until we can resume full dinners.

- To attend any meeting, students MUST have a signed COVID waiver on file. You can print a waiver here or pick one up in our mailbox outside the parish office. Registration is also needed, but not as urgently required as the COVID waiver. 

While we hope these changes are temporary, please understand these may change throughout the fall semester and into 2021. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

2020 Lock Outs Coming Soon!

Since we won't be able to do our overnight Lock In or Homeless Awareness Night this year, we're having our first ever Lock Out! This outdoor mini retreat will run from 12:00-7:00 and features games, talks, prizes, opportunities for prayer, and we'll attend the 5:00 Mass together. Please sign up at one of our regular Life Nights so we know how many lunches and dinners we will need. The high school Lock Out will be Saturday, October 31st and the middle school Lock Out will be Saturday, November 7th. Get excited for a great event!
