Who We Are:
The Life Teen program is a youth ministry program for 9th -12th grade students. Life Teen has a strong focus on the Eucharist. Starting Sunday evening with a Teen Mass, the teens are welcomed into a unique environment where they have an opportunity to grow in their own relationship with God through Jesus Christ and His Church. The music and the teachings speak to the hearts and minds of today’s teens.
Immediately following Mass, teens gather in the Life Teen Center to learn about the Church and their faith in challenging ways. At first they come for the FOOD, the FUN and the FRIENDS…then over time, they come because they are in a place where they feel loved and accepted.
Our Mission Statement:
The St. Oliver Plunkett Catholic Church Youth Ministry is committed to the reality that young people are an important and integral part of our parish community. The youth program seeks to foster the maturing in faith of the youth of our parish and the surrounding community.
We affirm the gifts of our youth and we foster opportunities for young people to share their gifts with the larger community. The spiritual and social needs of the youth are to be met with the committed leadership, guidance and support of our parish adults. The adults and youth of our parish are therefore provided with the opportunity to grow together in Christian faith.
Through a variety of programs, events and outreach, we seek to draw young people into responsible participation in the life, work and mission of the parish community. We believe this ministry is to, with, by, and for young people and is a blessing for the entire community.
