Summer Youth Activities
Summer Time is Here!
We are so excited to kick off our summer with many different fun activities targeted towards the youth of our parish (Incoming Freshman and older). These activities are highly encouraged for teens to participate in especially if they haven't started Confirmation One as a way to meet other classmates and get to know Hannah & Father Piega. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions!
Please read the whole email as there are a lot of different options for the youth this summer and we'd hate for you to miss out!

COME AND SEE WHAT THEY SAW.
WELCOME TO THE FIRST-EVER MULTI-SEASON SERIES ABOUT THE LIFE OF CHRIST. THE FREE SHOW TENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WON’T STOP TALKING ABOUT. A CHARISMATIC FISHERMAN DROWNING IN DEBT.
A TROUBLED WOMAN WRESTLING WITH REAL DEMONS. A GIFTED PUBLICAN OSTRACIZED BY HIS FAMILY AND HIS PEOPLE. A RELIGIOUS LEADER STRUGGLING WITH HIS BELIEFS. SEE JESUS THROUGH THE EYES OF THOSE THAT MET HIM.
We can pray perfectly when we are out in the mountains or on a lake and we feel at one with nature. Nature speaks for us or rather speaks to us. We pray perfectly.
Pope John Paul II
St. Teresa of Calcutta once said that “The fruit of silence is prayer.”
can help us listen to God’s voice in our lives and hear Him speaking to us through contemplation. This is why hiking is the perfect time to turn to prayer. Leave the headphones at home and embrace the silence you find while hiking -- hearing only the breeze rustling the trees and birds chirping as you walk -- and you’ll find it’s easy to let this silence take you to a place of active prayer.
Join us on two different Saturdays this summer to pray together, grow in fellowship, and get fit on Holy Hikes. Father Piega, Hannah, and visiting seminarians are gearing up to take the youth into nature and find some peace from our busy world to pray.
Registration is online at

More than ever, you, as teens experience busyness, confusion, and anxiety. Our hope is that you can be restored to greater peace and joy as a fruit of your encounter with Jesus. We want you to understand God’s original plan and what you are being RESTORED to a relationship with him and freedom. God wants to restore you to the person he created you to be.
