Youth Ministry Events

Our parish community values young people, not only as future leaders of the Catholic Church, but as leaders in the faith today. We seek to provide a program and ministry that encourages young people to lead lives of holiness while providing them with opportunities to encounter Christ, learn about the Catholic Church, serve others, and grow in faith.

We have youth ministry events for both Middle School (6-8th grade) and High School (9-12th grade).

High School Youth Group

High School Youth Group Gatherings are generally during the school year on Wednesday nights from 7:00-8:30pm in the Corpus Christi Youth Room. If you have any questions, you may contact the Faith Formation Director Scott.

Summer Youth Group events will be coming soon as well!

Middle School Youth Group

Middle School Youth Group meets on Tuesday nights once a month, usually from 6:30-8:30pm in the Youth Room. They feature a combination of games, food, faith lessons, hangout time and much more!

Upcoming Events

High School Lock-in – May 27-28 (Friday night 7:30 PM until Sat. morning 6 AM)

Don’t miss out on the “lock-in” social event for high schoolers on May 27-28 (overnight, Fri. night to Sat. morning)

Our teens helped plan an incredibly fun event for our on-site lock-in. It’s an entire night of gaming tournaments, night games outside, food, hangout time, crazy competitions inside & so much more! (we’re keeping some pieces a surprise for the night!) E-mail Scott@CCMN.org for questions or to register.

 

High School Mission Trip to St. Louis
Join us June 11-18 as we head to St. Louis! Register now, spaces limited
There are few experiences as powerful as a mission trip – so include the 2022 Trip in your plans for summer! We’re heading to St. Louis with Youthworks for 4 days of service + a few days of team-building, site-seeing, & more!
After 2 difficult years, there’s never been a more important time for such meaningful work! Serve with peers from around the country & get inspired by connections with the locals. There’s no better way to serve, grow, & make memories to last a lifetime!
Thanks to all those who have helped with fundraising this year for the trip. We were able to lower the cost to $400 for the 8-day trip (scholarships are available). Contact Scott at Scott@CCMN.org to register or for more information!

Give & Grin – Summer days with service and fun – Wednesdays in the summer – June 22, June 29, July 27, August 3, August 10
On Wednesdays throughout the summer we will continue the tradition of Give & Grin! These days of service and fun are open to all youth that just completed Grades 5-12. Each event (roughly 9 AM – 5 PM) features a morning of service, prayer, icebreakers & more, before going to a different offsite “fun site” each afternoon – like Bunker Beach, Grand Slam and more!

It’s a fun way to reconnect with your Corpus Christi friends. Adult leaders are needed!
