High School Youth Ministry
Our mission is to lead youth and their families to encounter Christ and to equip them to live as disciples.
We believe every young person should feel like they have a place in the Church and be given the opportunity to encounter Christ in a life-changing way. We seek to live this mission through weekly high school youth nights, sacramental preparation, discipleship groups that allow teens to go deeper in their faith, service days to bring the joy of Christ to others, and retreats throughout the year.
All Incoming 9th-12th Graders are invited to join us for the Lone Star Steubenville Conference, June 21-23, in Irving, TX. Join us for a weekend conference with thousands of other Catholic teens from around the country filled with engaging speakers, powerful liturgies and whole lot of fun! We will stay in the University of Dallas dorms for the weekend.
Cost: $225 per participant
Scholarships are available.

Youth Mass, Sundays at 6PM
Join our community as we encounter Christ in His true presence of the Eucharist. Our Youth Mass has contemporary worship music and a homily geared towards young people, although all ages are welcome.
We also invite young people to serve as Musicians, Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers and Greeters. Contact Katie Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in serving.
Encounter Youth Nights include dinner, games, talks on relevant topics to our faith in today’s culture, prayer, and small group discussions.
All high school youth are welcome to attend Encounter Youth Nights, but after attending 2 weeks in a row, you must register to continue for the year.
New for the 2018 Fall Semester! These new small groups will meet once a week with our NET Missionaries to dive deeper into your relationship with God.
Youth and parents are invited to join as we go out into the community to be the hands and feet of Christ to others. We serve at local non-profits around our community.
