High School Youth Group, Grades 9-12
The High School Youth Group will gather to work on service projects to benefit our established Parish Outreach programs. We are also extending our Parish events as an opportunity for the high school students to engage in our parish more fully and witness servant leadership here firsthand. Our goal is to inspire the students to take the lead on local service projects making service a staple of our Youth Group. Many of these volunteer events can be used as service hours for high school service requirements.
We ask the high school students to join us at the following events:
