2018-2019 High School Youth Ministry

Lord, teach us to pray is Lord, teach us to pray is a formation year, for all 9th-12th grade teens, focused on encountering Jesus. We will expose the beauty and grace shared in the mass, gain perspective to engage in the mass more fully, grow in confidence to read and apply scripture to your life, discover the Lord’s prayer as your own prayer, and experience various forms of prayer. Encounter Christ, make more friends, and serve the community together this year!
