K-12th Grade Youth Activities

Our parish offers youth group activities for three age groups: K-4th grade, 5th-8th grade, and high school.  Our regular meetings have ended for the school year and will resume in the fall.  In the meantime, be sure to save the date for our VBS program!

VBS is for children entering K-6th grade and will take place Monday, July 30-Friday, August 3, from 8:30-11:30 a.m. each day.  There will also be a finale at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, August 3.  Click here for more information and for the registration form!

American Heritage Girls Troop IA0928

American Heritage Girls is a Christian girls' organization dedicated to building women of integrity through service to God, family, community, and country.  By participating in this multi-level badge program, girls learn important life skills (from cooking to photography to paddling a canoe), have service and leadership opportunities, socialize with girls of all ages, and take time for spiritual development.

Our troop, Troop IA0928, was chartered in 2017 and is uniquely Catholic!  We have troop-wide meetings twice a month and girls ages 5-18 are welcome to join.  Some fun and service-oriented projects our troop has completed include:


-Making a rosary hike at Kent Park
-Giving away plastic army men after Masses to remind people to pray for our troops
-Sending Christmas cards to soldiers overseas
-Organizing and hosting a parish-wide mother/daughter tea


For more information about the troop, please contact our troop coordinator, Keary Onken, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  We're excited for you to join us here at St. Wenceslaus!
