Our Youth Ministry is back in action!
Our youth group meetings provide an outlet for our every middle schooler and high schooler to learn more about the Catholic faith and how it may pertain to their daily lives through the framework from Life Teen and Edge. Life Teen is a movement within the Catholic Church that helps lead young people and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. Life Teen also seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within our young Church, the youth.
Our youth groups are designed to give young people a sense of belonging to the Body of Christ through fellowship with peers and adult mentors, through spiritual formation, and through service to the Church and community. We provide opportunities to learn about our Catholic faith, engage in spiritual events, and various social activities that will nurture personal, spiritual and social growth as well as encourage a sense of responsibility to live out their faith each day by loving themselves and by loving others.
SJB has both a High School and Middle School Youth Group. The groups gather to learn about their faith, develop relationships with their peers and adult mentors, pray, and participate in social justice events.
We teach this not by just talking about our faith; but by living our faith! We strive to convince each young person that each one of them has the potential to change the world by being Jesus to others, and seeing Jesus in others. Examples of some of the activities include: visiting retirement centers, homeless shelters & soup kitchens; Youth Masses; “Game Nights” at the church; praying the rosary; hikes; Lip Sync Battles; ice cream socials; and snow tubing.
