High School Youth Ministry
Corpus Christi Youth Group
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.
All youth ministry events are open to youth in grades 9-12th. Make sure to fill out an Annual Permission Form & Health History. This form covers all activities that take place at church during the Faith Formation year September 2021 – August 2022.
Corpus Christi Youth Group Gatherings
Corpus Christi Youth Group Gatherings are open to youth in 11th-12th grade. The group gathers during the school year on Wednesday nights from 7:00-8:30pm in the Corpus Christi Youth Group Room. If you have any questions, you may contact the Coordinator of Faith Formation, Liz. Feel free to follow us on Instagram at @corpuschristi.youthgroup to stay in the know about all things CCYG!

Give & Grin Day of Service and Fun – Wednesday, August 11
On August 11, we will be going to serve at Arc’s Value Village in the morning. We will be going to an escape room in the afternoon and then back to church for water games. This Give & Grin day of service and fun is open to all youth that just completed Grades 5-12. This will be a fun way to reconnect with your Corpus Christi friends. Adult leaders are needed!
Teen Mentors assist with the Confirmation program by helping on the fall and spring retreats, leading discussions during Confirmation class periodically throughout the year, and participating in Prayer Night. Sign up by contacting Liz.
We love fun adults who have a desire to share their faith with our youth. Sign up below! All volunteers must complete a background check and VIRTUS training as required by the Archdiocese. A Code of Conduct form must be completed each year. Adult volunteers that may be driving youth to and from events must also fill out a driver form.
