We are one of the 150,000+ parishes in the United States that have a Life Teen program. Life Teen fosters a deep Eucharistic Spirituality, a love for Blessed Mother Mary, a desire to evangelize, catechize, and relate to the youth in our parish community. Life Teen is more than a youth group, it is a Catholic evangelical movement. It is Eucharistic- centered, which strives to lead teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of Sacramental power present within the young Church.
Our goal is to lead teens closer to Christ and inspire them to live as authentic disciples of Jesus Christ through a personal transforming relationship, calling them to live as courageous missionaries in their homes, schools, and community. We hope to help them meet Jesus where they are.
The first Saturday of the month at 5:00 everyone is welcome for the Life Teen Mass which has engaging music and a dynamic, meaningful message for teens. Every other Sunday at 6:00 we gather for what we call “Life Nights” where teens can socialize, share in a meal, and learn more about their faith through activities, discussions, and engaging presentations.
Life Teen also offers seasonal Bible studies, Lock-ins, team activities, service projects, off campus outings, an annual retreat, and so much more.
