Lord, how good it is for us to be here -- Matthew 17

Youth Ministry

2023-2024 Youth Ministry

 We are excited to launch this upcoming program year as a team, over the years we learned many new skills but our primary focus is the same: nurturing the personal prayer lives of all our parishioners.  We’ve embraced hybrid learning while also valuing the relationship-building that being together in person provides.  Our plans for the year ahead will incorporate the best of both worlds, combining both at-home asynchronous learning AND regular gatherings.  We will be using a flipped-learning approach, and our gathered sessions will reinforce the at-home materials in a fun, active, and engaging ways. 

Here are a few things to note for this year’s programs:

  • Middle School Youth Group (grades 6-8) will meet one Sunday night a month from 7-8:30. An online Google classroom assignment completed before the monthly meeting which will introduce our topic. This program will take place at Transfiguration.
  • Confirmation prep (typically grades 8-9) will meet one Sunday night a month from 7-8:30. Candidates also complete a monthly Google classroom assignment and attend at least 4 Middle School or High School Youth Group meetings each year. This program will take place at Transfiguration.
  • Senior High Youth Group (grades 9-12) will resume meeting weekly on Tuesdays from 7-8:30 at Transfiguration.
  • SEARCH Retreat for high school students will be held March 8-10, 2024!  The registration packet will be coming in the spring.
    • Search 2024 has been canceled due to low enrollment - stay tuned for Search 2025!

Additional opportunities to pray, serve, and play together will take place throughout the year and will alternate between St. Catherine's and Transfiguration.  

And there will be many more opportunities to pray, serve, and play together.  We’re so looking forward to walking the journey of faith with you and your family this year!
