ENCOUNTER Jr. High Youth Group
Our Jr. High Youth Group will begin regularly on Friday, September 30th from 7-9pm in the Parish Center. This group of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders meets weekly to build community and learn about the faith. The program we will be using for the Fall is Encounter by Ascension Press. It’s the Bible Timeline for Middle School Youth. You can download our registration forms online, pick them up at our first meeting, or email Maria Parker to have her send them to you today! We look forward to seeing you for Jr. High Youth Group this Fall!
YDISCIPLE High School Groups
We will be starting a new initiative this October for our High School Youth Ministry Program. All of our high school teens are invited to join us for YDISCIPLE groups. YDISCIPLE is an intentional small group discipleship program put out by the Augustine Institute in partnership with Lighthouse Catholic Media to provide parishes with discipleship formation for young people. It is a program that invites parents to become more active members of the team with the teens and small group leaders by checking out the resources online and having conversations with your children and family about what we are doing in the small groups. We will be launching four groups this October for the YDISCIPLE program and would love for your children to be a part of this. As participants, you will also receive an online registration code to use for establishing a username and login for the YDISCIPLE online platform so you can watch the videos and download the parents information sheets as well at home. Through our partnership, together, working to form our teens and engage them in the faith, we will be forming lifelong disciples. Contact Maria Parker to join one of our small groups or learn more about YDISCIPLE today!

Children’s Liturgy of the Word
Children’s Liturgy of the Word takes place during the 11:30 Mass when PREP is in session for children ages 4-9.
