LIFETEEN HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH GROUP

St. Patrick Parish invites all high school students to join the Life Teen Youth Group. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for our young people to stay excited about their faith, to realize they are a very important part of God's Family, and to see their God-given gifts. We meet on (most) Sunday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 PM in the youth group room located in St. Patrick School.

ALL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE INVITED TO ATTEND! BRING A FRIEND!

To be added to our youth ministry e-mail list to receive meeting notifications, contact Tess Allgyer, High School Youth Minister, [email protected], 636-332-9225, ext 232.


RADIANT GIRLS

This youth group for 7th & 8th-grade girls is designed to help young ladies learn how to choose faith continually and understand the challenges we all face to live the bravery that our faith requires of us. We meet from 3-4 PM on Wednesdays in the youth group room. We will share snacks, laughter, sisterhood, conversation and prayer. We will talk about the lies of our modern culture and the truth of Jesus, how loved and beautiful we are.
