High School Youth Group
The high school youth group meets on the first and third Sundays of the month to learn more about our Catholic Faith, share our experiences, do service and develop friendships that are positive and lifelong. Adult volunteers must complete the “Protecting God’s Children” program and have a background check. In addition to our twice-monthly meetings, we have other regularly on-going meetings for mission trip preparation, service projects, and catechesis. Adult volunteers help in one or more of the following ways:

  • Lead small group discussion sessions during the course of our meetings
  • Act as hosts for the meetings (set-up and take-down of materials and refreshments)
  • Become one of the lead teachers for our meetings
