Youth Faith Formation

When youth gather for activities, they gain strength from one another to live the gospel in the world.  Youth activities bring youth together and give them a sense of belonging and rapport.  Encourage your children to participate in youth activities.
SACRED HEART YOUTH MASS: Sacred Heart Youth Mass, 7:00 A.M., on each 1st Friday of the month. Youth are invited to Mass serve, learn about the Sacred Heart devotion, and eat a quick breakfast (youth will be able to arrive at school on time). A picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus will be displayed to remind us of how much Jesus loves us and needs us to console Him for those who do not love and honor Him in the most Blessed Sacrament. Call Molly if you have any questions or need to have your child transported to the elementary school, 243-7789. This may end up being one of the most enriching experiences of each new month for you and your children!
