What is YDisciple?
St. Michael YDisciple (Youth Discipleship) is aimed to further form and equip our Parish Youth to respond to Jesus' invitation to "Come follow me" (Matthew 4:19). During their lives, Jesus has and will continue to invite them into an intimate relationship with Him. Our Discipleship Small Groups allow for our teens to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ through developing a prayer life, being formed in Christ's teachings and experiencing authentic Catholic Community with their brotherhood or sisterhood.
What is a YDisciple Discipleship Group?
Each YDisciple Discipleship Group will have 6-8 teens (same grade, gender and school) and 2 adult mentors. Our Discipleship Groups are built upon four pillars; Prayer, Sacramental Life, Formation in Faith and Community. These pillars play a significant role in the formation and community of the members each week.
When Does A YDisciple Discipleship Group Meet?
Our YDisciple Discipleship groups will meet every week in person during the school year, in combination with large group sessions and small group discipleship sessions. We meet from 6:15-7:30 pm on Sunday evenings during the school year, minus holidays. Please see calendar for all our upcoming meeting dates. Starting in January, we will offer small meals prior to our nights from 6-6:15 pm in the Great Hall!
Our disicpleship nights are for all of our youth to come together and have some fun with other youth, dive deeper into their faith in an intentional community, and for authentic prayer experiences. Those who are not in a Discipleship Group will be invited to start or join a Discipleship Group at these events. We look forward to helping you find your place and home here in one of our Discipleship Groups
We ask that all those in teens would commit to meeting every week with their Discipleship group. We ask for this commitment because this is much more than just Formation, but you are building a brotherhood or sisterhood. This is not possible if you are missing.
Throughout the year, we will also offer XLT (Praise and Worship with Adoration) for the whole family several times a year and additional opportunities for our teens and their families, including our Advent Family Trivia, All Saints Living Rosary, Good Friday Stations of the Cross, and Palm Sunday Family Retreat.
