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.
CATHOLIC HEART WORK CAMP: The work camp is a week-long program for high school students, from incoming 8th graders through just graduated seniors. The mission is to share the love of Christ as they serve, live as disciples of Christ, and foster the Catholic Faith of each participant. The work camp will take place the week of July 17-22. 
The Stuebenville experience is a 3-day conference for youth in grades 9-12. The conference is July 28th-30th and is held at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. The conference is a weekend program that is inspirational, high energy, fun and funny.
