Youth

Life Teen

Life Teen seeks to ignite teens with a vibrant and personal love for Jesus Christ through sacramental encounters, engaging faith formation, deep community, service and discipleship. Life Teen is a comprehensive youth ministry program to reach today’s teens that is based upon the USCCB’s framework for high school catechesis, and because of this it also serves as our Parish School of Religion formation for 9th, and 10th graders.

Join us as we grow in faith, build community, and make lasting friendships, and together we will answer the call of the New Evangelization to live as Disciples of Christ!

All 9th – 12th graders invited, but attendance is required as part of our PSR 9th & 10th graders catechesis.

Abbey Youth Fest

Abbey Youth Fest is March 25, 2017 this year at St. Joseph’s Seminary and Benedictine Abbey in Covington, LA. The theme is “Be It Done Unto Me,” which is quite appropriate and beautiful for this Marian Feast Day! We have been in great anticipation for the event this year after it was flooded out last year. AYF is an all-day outdoors event with speakers, live music, venues, Confession, Adoration, Mass, and blasts of memories to be made with your closest friends and families! Abbey Youth Fest is open to students ages 14 and up. If you are over 18 you can participate as a college mentor, and if you are 21 and older, you can come as a chaperone. All are welcome!
Teens: fill out the Liability and Photo Release Form / Adults: fill out the Liability and Photo Release Forms and the Policies and Procedures. The fee is $60 and includes: registration, transportation, a t-shirt, and dinner. We are bringing our own bagged lunches. If you want to come, fill out the appropriate paperwork and return to Ms. Amelia Gallagher by March 8. Don’t wait to register!
