Life Teen is a Youth Group for grades 9-12 and is an opportunity to provide an engaging and interactive setting for comprehensive catechesis to help high school teens encounter Christ, listen to the Word of God, respond in faith, and grow in community. Teens from our parish are invited to join in weekly sessions on Sunday nights from 6:30-8:30 PM. Each Sunday session begins with a meal and then teens are invited to gather for a game, worship, or activity. Listen to the proclamation of the good news and a teaching, break out into small groups, and finally be sent to live their lives differently.
Dear Friends in Christ,
One of the positive aspects of COVID has been that many people have been able to spend more time with their families. In planning for the upcoming year for religious education for adults, teens, and children, we have decided to implement a parish family approach to everything we do this year. We want to ensure our families’ safety during this turbulent time, and we feel that the best way to do that and ensure social distancing is to offer classes and programs that allow you to learn at home as much as possible. Our theme this year is History’s Golden Thread: A Study of Salvation History.
We encourage everyone to participate in this program, which will include six in-person sessions throughout the year. These large group sessions will be held in the Church on Sundays for both teens and adults including EDGE & Life Teen, with special small group sessions for kindergarten through fifth grade held in the school (PSR). After each session, there will be materials available online and sent home for children, teens, and adults to continue learning and understanding their faith. Our goal is to offer everyone participating to encounter the beauty of OUR STORY found in scripture with two to three thirty-minute sessions after each of the in-person meetings.
The schedule for the in-person sessions is:
September 27, 2020 | 9:15 AM – 10:15 AM | Church
October 25, 2020 | 9:15 AM – 10:15 AM | Church
December 6, 2020 | 6:45 PM – 8:00 PM | Church
January 10, 2021 | 9:15 AM – 10:15 AM | Church
February 28, 2021 | 6:45 PM – 8:00 PM | Church
March 28, 2021 | 9:15 AM – 10:15 AM | Church
We have worked hard to find ways to make this something that everyone can participate in, young, old, married, and single. We also want you to know that it does not matter what level of faith you are at for you to participate; everyone is welcome! For adults, there is no need to register. If you plan to bring your children or teens, we ask that you register online by visiting the Kids & Student section of our website. We are excited about the opportunity to grow in faith together as a community this year. Our team is available to answer any questions you may have and look forward to seeing you at our first in person, but socially distant session.
