Summer Events

In addition to our usual Thursday Youth Group, we are also hosting a variety of events this summer. Join us for fun and fellowship!

Saturday, July 16: Family Game Night. Bring the whole family for board games, card games, and pizza in the Social Hall of the Activities Center following the 5 PM Mass. I'll have a good assortment of games available, but feel free to bring your favorite as well!

Thursday, July 28: Video Game Tournament. Who is the ultimate Smash Bros. champion? Find out from 7-9 PM in the Youth Room. More of a casual gamer? Come anyway, just to play for fun!

Friday, August 12: Outdoor Games. You can never have too much gaga ball! Join us on the field from 7-9 PM as we close out summer break with some more outdoor fun.

Youth Group

Youth Group meets every other Thursday, from 7-8 PM on the lower level of the Activity Center, and is open to anybody in grades 7-12. Everybody is encouraged to attend the 6:30 PM Mass beforehand if you can. Either way, join us for fellowship and discussion as we dive into the Word together!

Where we meet

Quo vadis?

Where is the Youth Room?

Youth Group meets downstairs in the Activity Center. Once you turn off of Westerly Parkway, drive between the church and school. The Activity Center will be right in front of you. Turn left once you're inside the main doors, and go down the stairs. We'll be in the Youth Room!
