TeenLife (8th - 12th Grade)
“Remember that you are never alone, Christ is with you on your journey
every day of your lives”
— St. Pope John Paul II
WHAT IS TEEN LIFE?
If you are in 8 through 12 Grade and have yet to receive Confirmation, then TEEN LIFE is the place for you! TEEN LIFE is the Faith Formation for High School Teens looking to have a large group experience. TEEN LIFE is all about learning how to create and form a personal RELATIONSHIP with Christ and His Church. We meet regularly on Sundays 6pm-8pm in the Formation Hall during the school year. Each LIFE NIGHT holds a Catechetical theme and we provide dinner to kick off the night. We also will dive into current topical issues for teens as well as host social nights.
Each year we will have an annual THEME for TEEN LIFE. The 2018 Theme is "HEART OF GOD". We will discover how Jesus Christ is the living Heart of God. We will learn about who God is through the Trinity, and discover the many ways that we can encounter Jesus Christ and the HEART OF GOD through the Sacraments, Mary Our Mother, and each other.
We will also take time to compete in our annual St. Michael House Cup Competition between our Households, have nights that focus on the current issues in High School and learn about the important Catholic events and Liturgical Seasons during the year.
A beautiful thing about being Catholic is that we are ONE Church, we are ONE family.
In TEEN LIFE we hope to make it possible for teens to grow in community with each other through their Household Small Group, the entire Parish and the Universal Church. Each teen is part of a Household (designated by grade and gender) with the same MENTOR, whom they will stay with until they graduate high school. This is to foster a brotherhood/sisterhood community and allow for every teen to feel as though they have a place in TEEN LIFE and for the rest of their lives. Our Households are Lion of Judah, Kateri, Frassati, Theotokos, Knights of Christ and Little Flowers.
TEEN LIFE ALSO OFFERS:
Every Summer we will host a SUMMER SERIES for those teens, adults or families that are interested in growing in their Faith. Our SUMMER SERIES will begin on May 7 and run from 6:30pm-7:45pm every Monday for 10 weeks. For the 2018 Summer we will be taking a look at the THEOLOGY OF THE BODY through the "You: Life, love and the Theology of the Body" series presented by Ascension Press. The cost for SUMMER SERIES is $35 per person to cover the workbook that you will receive on the first night. Registration is coming soon and not just for our Teens, Parents and adults are welcome to join us!
Every year we take our teens to a SUMMER RETREAT. A SUMMER RETREAT is a great opportunity for a teen to not only grow in community with the Youth Ministry group and their Household, but to grow in their own personal RELATIONSHIP with Jesus Christ. Our trips will focus on Spiritual Awakening at the Steubenville Lone Star Conference, Spiritual Maturity at the Life Teen Camp Wild Sky and Service through the Restore Mission Camp. Each SUMMER RETREAT take place on a three year rotation. 2018 we will be attending Steubenville Lone Star. 2019 we will be attending Camp Wild Sky and 2020 we will be attending Restore Mission Camp. More information for each SUMMER RETREAT is below, just click on the pictures.
