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 spring semester and through 2021. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC)

NCYC registration is now open! NCYC 2021 will take place in Indianaoplis, Indiana from November 17-21. We'll be flying and meeting up with a larger group from the Diocese for this amazing weekend. The trip will cost approximately $900 (depending on flight prices), but that price will be offset by a number of upcoming fundraisers.

To register, please fill out this form and return it to the office with a $150 deposit by Tuesday, April 20th. Due to limited capacity at this year's event, late registration cannot be accepted! Please email Ryan with questions or click here for additional information.
