9/23 Life Teen Update

Happy Wednesday Life Teen families!

It was so good to see so many teens last Sunday.  It is really a guessing game to who the teen is when you are wearing a mask.  Here is your LT Update filled with lots of great info:

Life Teen Faith Formation:  this consists of 2 components—Family Faith Formation and Decision Point

  • Family Faith Formation: How is the weekly home faith formation going?  I hope you are taking advantage of the Enrichment/Challenge activities too.  Remember to complete the Touch Base with FACE! form.  Families should complete this form and return the Touch Base with FACE! form when you pick up your October FACE! bag.  October FACE! bag will be ready for pick up:
  • Sunday, October 4:  9am-1pm (can pick up from the RE office), 1pm-4pm & 6pm-6:30pm (can pick up from the Life Teen office)
  • Wednesday, October 7:  10am-7pm( RE office)
  • Decision Point:  This is our once a month Sunday afternoon gathering and weekly reminder to watch a video and answer a question that comes from your “house family”.  Our next gathering will be on Sunday, October 18th from 3pm-4:30pm.  Remember, we meet in the church and wear your mask.  Here are the Decision Point gathering dates for the remainder of the school year:  November 15, December 13, January 10, February 7, March 7, April 25.  *If you are in need of the virtual option for Decision Point, please emailme at youthministry@stolivers.com!!

Social Activities:  All teens are invited to attend our Social Distance “Halloweenie Roast” on Saturday, October 31 from 11am-1pm in the lower parking lot (by the Life Teen entrance).  We will do some fun (but safe) Halloween games and roast hot dogs over some grills.  More details to come!

Seniors 2021:  Senior meeting on Sunday, October 4 at 3:30pm in the Life Teen room.  Please come with your ideas for the school year!

Please remember that Confirmation Preparation is a 2  year program!

  • Your 1st monthly Confirmation prep class will be on Wednesday, 9/30 from 7pm-8:30pm.  Teens will meet in the church for the Chosen video and then move to an outdoor space for their small group.  We are asking teens to bring some type of lawn chair (if possible) and bring your mask to wear in church.

NEW Life Teen Mass:  Beginning this Sunday, 9/27 through November 1st, the Life Teen Mass will be held OUTSIDE!  Bring your chairs and worship the Lord with us in nature!

St. Oliver’s Life Teen uses Facebook and Instagram to keep everyone in touch with what’s up.  We encourage our Life Teen families to request to join both of these sites.  Facebook is at St. Oliver’s Life Teen and Instagram is solifeteen.
