Summer Youth Meetings Schedule

K-5th Grade

K-5th grade activities are held in the conference room on Sundays after the 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Masses.  We learn about Sunday's Gospel as well as have activities related to an exciting aspect of our Catholic Faith.  Some past topics include the catacombs, Divine Mercy, St. John Bosco, transubstantiation, and the Shroud of Turin.

Middle School (6th-8th grade)

During the summer, middle school youth meet weekly on Wednesday evenings.  After a holy hour at 6:30 p.m., we meet in the parish hall from 7:30-8:30 p.m.  We begin with a short discussion about some aspect of the prayer/spiritual life and growing in holiness, then have social time in the spirit of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati.

High School

Parishioner Joe Cain leads a weekly prayer group for high school youth on Wednesday evenings.  As with middle school youth, we begin with holy hour at 6:30 p.m. and then meet from 7:30-8:30 p.m.
