Teens

St. Patrick's Church offers many opportunities for teen engagement.  These include Youth Ministry (LifeTeen & Edge), Teen Breakfast, One Bread One Cup Leadership Conference, Mission Trips, and Missionary Service.

LifeTeen

LifeTeen is a ministry for high school students in grades 9-12.  This young Church gathers Sunday evenings at 6:15 p.m., following the 5:00 p.m. Mass.  Incorporating faith, fellowship, & fun, this is an actively growing community for teens.

Edge

Edge is our Ministry for middle school students in grades 6-8.  Meeting once a month, these sessions focus on developing the young Church through fellowship and fun in a spiritual setting.  Edge does not replace Christian Formation but rather enhances it by fostering our young teen community.

Confirmation

Confirmation preparation fosters encounters with our creator, God, and facilitates the love relationship with our savior, Jesus while understanding faith through the Catholic Church.  Meeting two times per month, candidates attend each session with an adult partner.

Javas & Jesus

Once a month, teens gather for breakfast at 6:30 a.m.  They enjoy a beverage and breakfast with life discussions.  They receive a blessing as they begin their school day with a full belly and full soul.
