About

Youth Group is a series of regular events for teens to come together and grow in their relationship with Jesus, friends, our parish, the Catholic Church, and the local community. Led by Ryan and a group of volunteers, teens will have dinner, play games, experience talks, enjoy small group conversations, encounter prayer experiences, and deliver service projects. These youth group nights are designed to fuel our teen’s souls for the week ahead and build for themselves a foundation for their lives they can always count on. These events are free and dinner is always provided.

Dinners

Dinner is served at every Youth Group event. This helps us build our connections with one another and the church and helps heighten the experience of the teens participating. In order to provide this opportunity we need help from the families connected to the group and other ministries by way of donating all or part of a dinner. We have provided a Sign Up Genius to help coordinate this. Please click the button below to see all available slots.

Location

Youth Group is held in “The Upper Room” of the Parish Center. When looking at the church building at the intersection of Castlewood and Bellevue, the Parish Center is to the left past the older school building. There is a sign near the street showing the name of the building. The Parish center was once a convent for sisters, then a preschool, and now our Parish offices and “The Upper Room” where Youth Group is located. An exact Google Maps pin for the building is provided below.

Volunteering

The Youth Ministry Adult Leadership Team, is a group called “The Core Team”, and is a group of weekly volunteers led by Ryan Adamson that provide regular events for teens to come together and grow in their relationship with Jesus, friends, our parish, the Catholic Church, and the local community. The Core Team is directly responsible for cultivating a hospitable environment and facilitating dinner, games, talks, small group conversations, prayer experiences, and when able service projects. These youth group nights are designed to fuel our teen’s souls for the week ahead and build for themselves a foundation for their lives they can always count on. 

If you’re 18 or older, have a relationship with Jesus, like being Catholic, like teenagers, and have a desire to pass on what was given to you or provide what you wish you had, Ryan Adamson would love to hear from you. This is an amazing opportunity to make an impact on the youth of our parish and community and help set them up with a foundation of faith that will influence the rest of their lives.

All volunteers must pass a background check and complete the online VIRTUS training.
