Our Semester

Welcome

St. Patrick Life Teen is a Eucharist-centered Catholic program for high school teens. By sharing the teachings of our Church and facilitating powerful encounters with Christ, we help teenagers grow in knowledge of our faith, while transforming their hearts to help them passionately live out the gospel by serving and loving one another. Through fellowship and open and honest discussion, we grow closer to one another and Christ, knowing that we walk this journey together.

About Life Teen

Life Teen is a comprehensive youth ministry program with a strong focus on the Eucharist. Despite its phenomenal growth, it has never deviated from what it set out to be – a parish-based Catholic-centered ministry for all high school teens. The goal of Life Teen is to create an environment to lead teens into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. It speaks to teens on all levels: emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual.

The evening begins with a Mass directed specifically towards teens, which is followed immediately by the Life Night, which falls under one of three categories: catechetical, issue, or social. The primary objective is to encourage teens to realize a deeper relationship with Christ and to challenge them to live their faith as they carry out their daily lives. Teens experience this sharing in an atmosphere of love and acceptance from their peers and the adult leaders who are there to assist them in their journey.

In order for Life Teen to achieve its full potential, the full support of St. Patrick is essential. The youth minister works closely with the priest and initiates, organizes, and oversees the program among a Core Team of trained adult leaders, parish leadership, and the parish community.

The Life Teen Core Team is made up of adults who are 20 years old and older. Each Core Member is charged to reach out to teens on both an individual basis and as a member of the of the Core Team. Core Members assist with all Life Nights and retreats.
