LEADING YOUTH IN GRADES 6-12 TO A
DEEPER, AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIP
WITH CHRIST AND HIS CHURCH
"Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations..."
As a ministry of All Saints Catholic Church, the mission of the All Saints Youth Ministry is to lead the young people of our parish into a deeper, authentic relationship with Christ and His Church, and through them, to bring Christ more and more into the world at large.
The world today promises comfort and cheap joy. This ministry welcomes all young people who are seeking fulfillment, real joy, greatness, happiness, and friendship, and we will work to show you that Jesus Christ is the Happiness you are seeking. We have events, resources, and programs for teens from grades 6-12, and there is a place for everyone here. Leading our teens to Christ is the mission. Come along and join us for the adventure.
Our Core Team is a dedicated group of All Saints parishioners who volunteer every week to minister to, spend time with, and pray for the High School-aged youth of our parish!
We are always in need of more hearts and hands to help guide the youth of our Parish closer to Christ! If you are at all interested in helping in any way, with any age group, contact us via our information above!
A continuation of general catechesis in the Catholic Faith
During the 6th Grade year, students will dive into Scripture and learn the incredible story that God tells us there!
Confirmation Year 1
To begin the process of Confirmation preparation, students participate in small-group discussions with a video-based catechesis.
Confirmation Year 2
This is the year in which students participate in the Confirmation preparation program in preparation for receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.
This is specifically for those older students who have not yet received the Sacrament of Confirmation and wish to prepare for that. Generally, this will take place within the High School Ministry, alongside their peers, while doing additional preparation. Click here to register your High School student to begin/resume their Confirmation Preparation!
Monthly Catechesis for the Whole Family!
New this year, we will hold family catechesis events once a month on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:45 in the Gym at the Church. These are meant to strengthen the ways families pray, grow, and learn together. Families with children of any/all ages are welcome to join us, whether or not they have registered for Faith Formation classes. Each month, we will discuss a different topic and empower families to help each other grow in holiness!
The purpose of All Saints High School Youth Ministry is to create an environment that leads high school youth into a deeper relationship with God through Jesus Christ and His Church. Our ministry offers dynamic events such as Illuminate Nights, Bible Study, retreats, missions, conferences, and more. All High School events are shown in the calendar below. All are welcome!
We meet every Sunday after the 5:00 pm Mass, 9th to 12th-grade students will take time eating together, praying together and have an engaging topic relevant to the faith and their lives. We also have time for praise, worship, and music to enhance the prayer experiences. Every few weeks, we go to the Chapel and experience Adoration.
Every Wednesday from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm for students in high school. Each week we eat pizza, spend time in fellowship and look at the upcoming readings to help prepare ourselves for the Sunday liturgy.
Check in here for further information about High School Ministry Events!

What is 'virtue', and why should we care about it as Catholics?
"A virtue is a habitual and firm disposition to do the good. It allows the person not only to perform good acts, but to give the best of himself." -Catechism #1803
Both Scripture and the best of philosophy tell us of 7 primary virtues. There are more than these, but these are the most broad way to summarize them all. Four are apparent from reason and are called the "Cardinal Virtues". These are:
Scrtipture and the Tradition of the Church give us three more which are called the "Theological Virtues". These are:
Check out any of the links below for more information about the virtues, and how you can grow in them!

"The Chosen" is, honestly, the greatest television-quality portrayal of the Gospel I have ever seen. It is not only actually good television, but it is a really impactful way to experience the Gospels and the life, ministry, and person of Jesus Christ. We cannot recommend this enough to anyone.
