High School Youth

Lifeteen meets on Wednesday nights during the school year and begins with Mass at 6:15 PM.  In addition to the Director of Youth Ministry, Adult Core leaders guide high school students through the Catechism of the Catholic Church in an engaging program.

Little Flowers Girls Club

This group is open to girls in grades K thru 5 Little Flowers is a Catholic program for girls developed by a Catholic mom of eleven. They meet once a month in the afternoon. The club strives to bring the Catholic faith alive and inspire girls to become authentic Catholic women. Each meeting focuses on a different female saint and corresponding virtue, such as purity or truthfulness. The girls explore the saint’s virtue by discussing how it applies to their daily lives make crafts or learn a song highlighting that virtue. In order to earn the badge for faith each girl will complete her medal project. For more information, please contact: Tara Ludwig at 615-519-7765.
