All 6th-12th grade teens are welcomed to participate in our in-person and online parish events that we create and host just for them. Their relationship with Jesus and this parish is at the center of everything we do together. Whether it’s a fun social outing like a nerf battle or movie night, a service opportunity, an encounter with prayer, or a discussion on life’s most important topics, teens will be able to grow in their faith and friendships.
Teens do not need to be Catholic to attend, and friends are always welcome.
