Transfiguration Youth Ministry: Our programs are designed to help every 6th -12th grader in our parish to get to know God, to get to know themselves, and to get to know each other. Our weekly gatherings include time for exploring our faith, for having fun together, and for just being with our God.
We also offer many opportunities to dive into your faith more deeply -- using your head, your heart, and your hands -- including our annual Search retreat, summer service immersion week with the Sisters of St. Joseph Volunteers Corps, the biannual National Catholic Youth Conference, and ongoing relationships with Hope for the Homeless and RAIHN (Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network).
Our weekly youth group for senior high, Destiny, is held during the school year on Tuesdays from 7-8:30 PM in the youth room in the lower level of the Education Building. All 9th-12th graders are welcome to come and bring a friend!
Our youth group for 6th-8th graders meets during the school year on most Sundays from 10:15-11:15AM in the youth room in the lower level of the Education Building. All 6th-8th graders are welcome to come and bring a friend!
Search Retreat - Our annual weekend retreat for high schoolers (teens Grades 9-12) will take place March 2-4, 2018. Search weekend is a chance for teens to get away from the daily routine to spend time with God and with each other as a faith community.
