After the 6 p.m. Mass, the teens gather in the parish hall for an evening of energy-filled community building and dynamic catechesis. With new catechetical themes delivered each semester, the youth ministry team have a variety of topics to explore and teach to the youth. This creative and experiential approach engages youth to understand Catholic teaching and form their Catholic identity. The night begins as we Gather in a large group for praise and worship and activities. The leaders then Proclaim the teaching and message of Christ. Afterwards, the teens Break into small groups for discussion in which they are invited to share their thoughts and experiences in a safe and non-judgemental atmosphere. Finally, we Send the teens off by challenging them to live the Gospel and make Christ visible, audible and tangible in their every day lives.
