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.  We use is a whole person approach that includes: Sunday Nights (educational, spiritual, & community building evenings from 7:00-8:30), social activities, service projects, small groups, intergenerational courses, independent studies and retreats. Options available are Sunday evening Youth Groups in Pope Benedict Center from 7 to 8:30 pm, Happiness: A 7 part series on Tuesday and/or Wednesday evenings, and small groups for guys and ladies.   Youth Ministry 2017

Summer Bonfires for Teens

We will not be having a bonfire on Thursday, July 27 since the youth group will be making dinner and serving it at Family Promise.

Bonfires will resume next Thursday at 8:00 pm.

Prayers Please

This weekend, teens and adults are attending the Steubenville Youth Retreat Conference. Please keep us all in your prayers that the Holy Spirit may bless us with renewed enthusiasm and joy for our Church and that we may share it with our community.

Helping out the Homeless

Teens are needed to help prepare food and provide hospitality to those staying with Family Promise this week. On Thursday, July 27, we need two teams of 3 - 5 teens to help prepare and deliver the meal from 4:00 to 6:30 pm, and another team to play with the kids and interact with the families from 6:30 to 9:00 pm. This is a great way to give back to the community and make a difference in someone’s life.

Softball Update

For the first time ever, we have an undefeated record of 4 - 0 and will be headed to the playoffs at the end of the month once our makeup games are played. Our coach over the past years, Ryan Duane, is off to medical school and will not be able to finish the season with us. Good luck Ryan and God’s blessing along the way. Thanks for all you have done. (picture below is only half of the team).




Thank You for Helping with the Winter Shelter

Due to the generosity of our parishioners, we were  able to help the women’s and men’s winter shelter  with three meals this winter. The teens and adults  prepared and served over 450 meals to those in need  and had a wonderful experience working together  and serving those less fortunate. 


Share Your Gifts with the Teens and their Families

As we look forward to the upcoming year there are a lot of wonderful things that will be happening. Youth Ministry needs people who have a passion for Christ. We need people to pray, to facilitate classes (not teaching), to lead faith sharing, and to help with outreach. You’re level of commitment can be weekly, monthly, or just whenever you have time. The teens are the future of our Church, help give them a solid foundation! Call Janet to get involved. 

Make Mass Matter – Get Involved!

Teens, we would love to have your youth and enthusiasm more present at Masses! There are many ways to help, such as lecturing, greeting, altar serving and ushering. Also, if you are 18 you can be a Eucharistic Minister. To volunteer call Janet at 724 941 9587 ext. 112 for more information.
