We love for the teens to attend Wednesday evening mass at 6:30pm.

Weekly Activities may include: Peer faith talks, peer led discussion groups, fellowship building games, small groups, Apologetics Nights
Special Activities may include: Guest speakers, Sports, Bonfires, Trivia Nights, Trips and Pilgrimages
Faith Building Retreats and Fellowship may include: Archdiocese Search Retreat, ACYC (Archdiocese Youth Conference) Retreat, March for Life in Washington D.C., Parish Youth Group Retreats and Cove Crest Summer Camp.

Adult Volunteers: Help is needed with food preparation on Wednesday evenings and occasional set-up and break down. Adults are also needed for small group discussions. Chaperons are also helpful for youth trips and retreats. Please inquire with me (Brooke) if you feel called to help in any of these areas.
