We challenge St. Patrick’s Parish Youth to desire Christ in a deep and meaningful way.
The friendships and bonds created in our high school youth ministry make it possible for our teens to pursue holiness in community. We hike, play dodgeball, learn, share, and pray, all for the greater glory of God!
XLT stands for exult. This will be our monthly gathering (the last Sunday of every month) where 6th-12th graders come together to dive deeper with their larger community through dinner, games, a relevant talk, and praise and worship. Small groups that choose to meet on Sundays will not meet on XLT days, unless they choose to meet beforehand on their own. XLT will be from 3 p.m. – 4:45 p.m.
The first XLT on September 29th at 3:00 p.m. -4:45 p.m.
A small group is made up of a group of teens, assigned by grade and gender, who are committed to meeting with their small group brothers or sisters once a week to study the Catholic faith more deeply and learn what it means to live their life as a disciple, being nourished by the Sacraments.
Small groups meet once a week, Sunday through Thursday, and teens can choose between the times that best fit their schedule.
Each small group is founded on four major pillars: Prayer, Worship, Study, and Community. These pillars play a significant role in the formation of the small group members each week.
In order to ensure that each teen is committed and aware of what they are signing up for, we ask that the Small Group Registration Form is filled out by the teen, with the parents supervision.
October 6th will be our small group launch date.
