Youth Ministry

 Welcome to Holy Family Youth Ministry


As a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church, Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church.  With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present with the young Church.


Teens from all high schools are invited to attend our weekly gatherings following the 11:30 a.m. Sunday Mass.  Come down to the Life Teen Lounge (a.k.a. rooms 3/4 in the Lower Church Hall)  from 12:30-2:00 p.m. to enjoy food and community and to grow in relationship with Jesus Christ.


Our theme for 2017-2018 is "Heart of God."  How does God give us His heart?  What does it mean for us to have hearts that chase after God?  We will strive to be like King David: "[God] raised up David as their king; of him he testified, 'I have found David, son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will carry out my every wish."  (Acts 13:22)


New this year:  Eucharistic Holy Hour for Vocations.  All high school teens are invited to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament every 3rd Sunday of the month, beginning Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017.  Come down to the Life Teen Lounge (a.k.a. rooms 3/4) at 12:30 p.m. for refreshments, and at 1:00 p.m. we will go up to the church for Eucharistic Adoration.

Life Teen is known for its parish-based religious education program for high school teenagers and is used by over 1,600 Catholic parishes in 24 countries around the world. Life Teen has developed a dynamic model to help Youth Ministers and adult program leaders, known as Core members, execute comprehensive Catholic youth ministry in a parish setting. Most Life Teen Programs utilize multiple events during the week, such as Bible studies, Mass and social events to provide teenagers with healthy and holy activities to take part in that will help them fall more deeply in love with Christ and their community of faith.
