EPIC Middle School Youth Ministry

EPIC Youth Ministry is open to all 6-8th grade students in area public, private, & parochial schools.This February, EPIC Middle School Youth Ministry will be hosting a food drive (collecting specific food items before 9 AM, 10:45 AM, and 12:15 PM masses on Sunday, Feb. 2) to support the Family Mentor Foundation.

Family Mentor Foundation is a nonprofit charity established to connect community resources and children who need them most. They seek to help meet the unmet needs of children in our community through a variety of programs and resources that will help them to reach their full potential.

As we prepare to enter the liturgical season of Lent and share in the parish-wide initiative of Catholic Relief Service’s Rice Bowl opportunity, we are aware of the local and global hunger. In our awareness, EPIC is getting a jump start by partnering with the Family Mentor Foundation to impact local hunger. After our service-learning food drive, EPIC students will be encouraged to participate in the CRS Rice Bowl throughout Lent to continue to give back through prayer and almsgiving to support local and global needs.

Sign up here:

All EPIC students and their families are invited to attend 12:15 PM Mass on Sunday, February 2 followed by a light lunch in Hendricks Hall.

Foods EPIC will be collecting at the food drive:

  • Individual raisin packs
  • Meat sticks – anything shelf-stable and under 12”
  • Cheese Dip ‘N’ Pretzel Sticks or Crackers
  • Mac and cheese cups or Kraft Easy Mac sleeves
  • Apple sauce cups
  • Sunflower seed sleeves
  • Granola bars
  • Individual serving veggie cups
  • Individual serving fruit cups

Women’s Bible Study: Living the Word of God

By | Uncategorized | No Comments



Why is it so hard to accept that God is passionately in love with each of us? Often, we have little trouble saying and believing “God loves us” but to look in the mirror and say – “God loves me” is often very difficult. As part of our Women’s Bible Study we are going to take that most awesome gift of God’s love and reflect and share how God’s love lives in and through us. It reinforces that it is not enough to study or sing about God’s word.  We must, with great and bold deliberateness, live the Word we profess. We are using Love Lives Here by Maria Goff as a springboard for sharing in small groups. A supplementary book will be Love Does by Bob Goff.

We meet in Berry Room of Hendricks Hall 7:00- 8:15 PM.
January 8, 15, 22, 29, 2020. February 5, 12,19, 2020.
Registration is required. Once you register on our parish
website, you will receive a letter regarding the books.
Registration are due, at the latest, by January 3 but the
earlier the better.  – Sr. Teresa Tuite, OP
