Message from Amanda: 

"I know that it is not ideal to meet for Youth Group over Zoom. It is way more fun to be together in person to hug, to play games, worship the Lord and learn together. Unfortunately, the present time calls us to rise to a new challenge and to love our neighbors so much that we are willing to make the sacrifice and gather virtually instead. It is a top priority of mind to acknowledge and validate the tough times we are facing, to create a space for our students to express their fears, frustrations, anger, excitement, joy and laughter all in one place. Why is this important? Because when we all relate to each other, we build community. And that is when the trust develops and we can explore our faith in a deeper and more meaningful way. I look forward to seeing you in Youth Group. Let's make it a great year!"

Volunteer with Senior High Youth Group

We are always grateful for extra help either in the midst of Youth Group or behind the scenes. There are two basic qualifications: a volunteer needs to be age 21 or over and have completed the Archdiocesan Safe Environment Training. (Link to safe environment training)

Due to COVID-19, many of these volunteer opportunities are not actively available. If you have questions or would like to volunteer, please email Amanda

Once our regular meetings and activities resume, we will need volunteers to help with the following activities:

Youth Team (Assist with weekly gatherings.)

Shopper (Gather/ purchase needed items for events; food, crafts, etc.)

Retreat or Rally Team (Assist on an all-day or overnight event.)

Snack Coordinator (Serve snacks and clean up at Youth Event.)

Assist with Community Service Projects.

Driver (Assist with transportation to/from events. Must have proof of insurance.)

Chaperone for special events (Retreat, Movie Night, Service Work, Field Trips, etc.)

Other (music, audio/video technicians, etc.)


Confirmation is such a special sacrament in the Catholic faith. Why? This is when the teens and young adults in our community can make the decision to choose the faith to be theirs for the rest of their lives. 

In order to enroll in the Confirmation program, the student needs to first have a minimum of one year in Faith Formation / Youth Group prior to the start of the Confirmation classes. In their second year of Faith Formation / Youth Group, you may inquire about the eligibility of your student for Confirmation. This is a separate meeting from Youth Group, and the expectation is that the student will be attending both meetings as they continue to grow their faith.

Note: Youth Group at the Senior High (High School) level is a four year program... this means that should your student be present for more than two years, they are not repeating a year, they are merely continuing on in the program. Confirmation is a separate two-year program where Youth Group is the prerequisite. Students hoping to enroll in the Confirmation classes need to be mindful of this commitment the year before they hope to enroll, as they need to have 80% attendance at Youth Group and that they should be actively participating. 

If you are out of high school and you are interested in being confirmed as an adult, please review the pdf link above to find the next steps for you, or visit the Adult section under the Education tab at the top of your screen.
