Life Teen Catholic Youth Ministry Program
NOVEMBER 15 & 16
PERMISSION SLIP FOR RETREAT
St. Andrew has been a Life Teen parish since 2002. Since participating in Life Teen our high school youth ministry program has been a highly successful program that is recognized in several dioceses and states.
One of the keys to success has been to develop a program that fulfills the Life Teen mission of "Leading Teens Closer to Christ" through a balance of many different activities.
We have a Life Teen mass every Sunday night at 5:00 PM. This mass is open to everyone but the music and homily are geared toward the high school age group.
We have a high school activity almost every Sunday night after mass
The evening begins with dinner in the parish hall for all those who will be staying for that nights activity
After dinner we life nights and monthly socials. (Life nights are fun and engaging ways of learning about our faith). We also have Adoration with praise and worship occasionally throughout the year.
We participate in various different service projects such as providing Christmas for local needy kids, rock-a-thon's to support the Haitian Health Foundation and pro life service projects.
We offer both a fall and a spring retreat where we bring in the top Catholic Youth Speakers in the country to host our retreats.
We also offer a summer retreat to the local Steubenville Conference and a summer camp to Northbay Camp in North East Maryland where we are joined by Catholic Youth from all over the east coast.
All high school youth are invited to join us on Sunday nights throughout the year.
