HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH MINISTRY
Youth ministry's goal to create lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ is done by making the parish feel like a home away from home.
St. Luke writes in the Acts of the Apostles that the early church "..devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of the bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common" - Acts 2:42-44
We want our programs to echo this passage from Acts so the youth may truly live their faith as the Apostles did. To live The Way Christ has shown us in the Sacred Scriptures, the community we create, the Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist and committing our lives to go to Our Lord in prayer.
With that being said, we have a new program schedule to fit the needs of our high school teens in order for them to truly feel heard and cared for here at St. Anthony's. These are the new changes this year (2021-2022) that we are excited to bring to you and your family. We believe it will make for a better ministry environment so that the students can receive the Gospel more effectively.
We truly believe in the presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, so we want to give our teens every opportunity to grow in relationship with Christ in his true presence. All High School is invited to these nights of praise and worship, Adoration and Benediction.
Living Stations Of the Cross
Prayer is our relationship with God. Through meditating on Scripture we can encounter the living God in our daily lives. Our teens perform a Living Stations of the cross during Lent to bring to life the depth and mystery of the Lord's Passion through the eyes of Mary.
