Youth Group, Retreats, and Events



6:30-8:00 pm in the youth rooms

Come hang out with other teens, ask questions about your faith, and find a fun and loving community. We gather almost every Wednesday night during the school year. You’ll play games and laugh, meet new friends who support you, and find support in your faith from peers who have been through it. Grades 6-8 gather together, and grades 9-12 gather together. Located in the youth rooms (in the rectory building. Park at the far end of the lower parking lot.) A full schedule of the year will be posted soon!

All middle and high school students welcome

Starting SEPTEMBER 25, 2019
