Confirmation Certificates:  Confirmation Certificates will mailed to all the families in October with a photo of your student receiving Confirmation.

Staying Connected:  We want all of our students to stay connected and continue to grow in their faith.  One fantastic way of doing this is for your teen to sign-up to mentor a freshmen this year.  Mentoring only requires your teen to help 1 time a month for 20 minutes.  The best thing about it is that gives them an easy way to help others, remain a part of the community and grow in their faith.  They can find more information and sign-up by CLICKING HERE!

M-Power is our youth group for Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors.  This group meets on Sundays from 6:40pm-8:15pm.  There is not an attendance requirement to be a part of this group.  Your teen simply shows up as frequently as they are able to and will be welcomed into our youth group community.  You can register your teen for M-Power by CLICKING HERE!

Peer Leadership:  If your teen wants to step forward as a leader we encourage them to consider being a peer leader.  Peer leaders are responsible for leading small group discussion for our freshmen Confirmation classes.  Peer leaders need to be able to commit to attending Life Teen at least 75% of the time on Sundays from 6:40pm-8:15pm.  Peer leaders will be paired with our adult volunteers so they will have help leading their small group.  You can sign-up to be a Peer Leader by CLICKING HERE!

First Saturdays are great opportunities to give back to the community.  Join us every First Saturday of the month for service projects.  We meet outside of Morris Hall at 10:00am.  We split up into groups and serve at organizations like Mobile Loaves and Fishes, Special Olympics, Catholic Charities, St. Louise House, Austin Parks and Recreation, nursing homes and many more! You can sign-up for First Saturdays by CLICKING HERE!

Bible Study: This year we have a student led bible study group that meets every Tuesday from 5:30pm-6:30pm in the Holy Family Center Youth Room.  Your student can attend anytime that they are available.  This is a great way to build a habit of reading scripture and community.  You don’t need to sign-up, you just need to show-up!  🙂
