(High School Faith Formation)
St. Patrick Teens is a comprehensive youth ministry program for high school students. You will find our youth members serving in our faith formation programs as catechists, catechist aides, and office assistants. Our music ministry includes numerous youth members participating as cantors, choir and folk group vocalists and musicians. During liturgies some of our ushers, Eucharistic ministers and lectors are high school students. St. Patrick has a thriving Vacation Bible School program each summer thanks to the presence of our youth, they help as area coordinators, crew and station leaders and musicians. Thanks to our vast number of peer ministers, the GPS Confirmation process has returning, confirmed facilitators from around 13 different high schools that share their faith and respond to the call of our Lord to live as disciples.
SP Teens is a community of youth that gathers to:
- Encourage each other
- Support each other
- Share in each other's joy
- Share fun and fellowship
- Serve others through outreach
- Serve the Parish special events
- Praise and Worship
We live our faith by our actions and our words. We grow in our faith through positive relationships with each other, by being a part of our Sunday Liturgy, participating in retreats, attending Vicariate events, assisting with Vacation Bible School, and attending conferences where we meet other Catholic youth.
