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.
On Saturday, February 24th the high school girls (grades 9-12) are invited to a semi-formal “tea party” at the St. Louis Church in Paynesville. Invitations to the girls of each parish have been mailed. Please RSVP here.  Any adults who are interested in helping, please contact Becky Haag at 453-5765 or

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!
The Lifeline Mass is a Mass for youth in grades 8-12. The Mass is held at NET Ministries in St. Paul. The evening includes a dynamic speaker, great music, and a vibrant Mass. There is no cost. Watch the bulletins, website, or e-mails for more information.
