Youth Ministry

St. Benedict's Youth programs, activities, and events available for all teens in grades 9-12.  Our mission is to invite teens into a closer relationship with Jesus and His Church.  We use relevant teaching techniques and authentic relationship to help teens understand what it is to live true Christianity.  We also have all levels of involvement so teens can pick and choose.

Cedar Point 

Here are the details you will need to share with your teen if they are coming to Cedar Point next Sunday:

  1. The bus will be leaving from St. Benedict after the 7:30 am Mass. If you are not going to that Mass, please be there at 8:20 am.
  2. We will be leaving the hotel Monday at 4:30 pm and return around 9:30 pm.
  3. Things to pack include sunscreen, bug spray, money for food, snacks, and a bathing suit for the pool.
  4. Each teen will be assigned a chaperone, and they will have to check in with them 5 times throughout the trip, either in person or by phone.
  5. There is a midnight quiet curfew at the hotel. This needs to be respected or they will send teens/groups home.
  6. We get to the hotel before check-in so our luggage stays in a guest room. Please do not bring anything valuable because it cannot be assured.
  7. The usual rules apply (i.e. no smoking, drinking, out past curfew) or else parents will be asked to pick up their teens.

If you haven’t turned in the remaining $120 or $140 balance, please do so ASAP. We have never sent teens home or have lost a teen on this trip. Pray for us while we are away so that I can say the same next year. Thank you for trusting us with your teens.
