Youth in grades 6-8 gather on Wednesday evenings, Sept to April, from 7-8:30pm to pray, grow in their relationship with Christ, and learn more about their Catholic faith. We begin each Wednesday with music and prayer in church led by our senior high worship team. Youth then meet in small groups until 8:30pm.

Activities during the year include the Fall NET Retreat, Pancake Breakfast, MEA Bonfire, Operation Christmas Child, Parent’s Night Out, Advent Brunch, Christmas Caroling, Easter Baskets for Keystone, Easter Egg Dyeing, End of Year Mass and Ice Cream Social.

Give and Grin Summer Service Program

Youth entering Grade 6-12 gather for six Wednesdays in June, July, and August to share their time and talents with others. We serve at a wide range of locations in the community in the morning, gather at lunchtime for reflection and bible study, and then have a social activity in the afternoon. Youth focus on learning about Catholic Social Teaching and using the talents God has given to make a difference in the lives of others.

June 13 & 20, July 11 & 18, Aug 1 & 8
Register by May 1 to take advantage of special discounts!
