Life Teen is for all St Therese 9th -12th Grade Teens and Friends
Sacramental Preparation for Confirmation is part of the Life Teen Ministry that runs from September -May & parts of the summer. The preparation of the Sacrament takes place during the Fall months of the year. The Sacrament is received in January during their 9th-12th grade years. The Sacrament is received for most teens during their 9th grade. After the teen receives Confirmation they continue to finish out LIFE TEEN until May, come during the summer and try to attend a Summer Camp or the Steubenville Conference. Then the teens try to commit to come throughout High School.
Life Teen is a movement within the Roman Catholic Church, Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. Through powerful Eucharistic encounters and engaging catechesis, teens are immersed in a dynamically Catholic parish culture.
With the parish as their true home, our teens are then further strengthened by our Summer Camp, Conferences, Retreats, and Digital (web and social media) evangelization. Our goal is to “reach” today’s teens, but also to create an environment where Catholic teenagers feel supported and engaged the other 167 hours a week, outside of Sunday mass.
