Have you heard of Life Teen at other parishes or seen our posts in the bulletin and wondered what we do every week? This letter about our latest theme at youth group – “Alive & Dangerous” – is addressed to you, parents and parishioners to give you a better understanding of what we’re doing here. It allows you to more deeply trust that we are helping young people truly grow not just in faith, but in life. This is where they feel accepted for who they are, where they are safe and can enter into their Catholicity unlike anywhere else. I encourage you to read this letter with an open heart and encourage your teen to experience what millions of teens across the country have already started on their journey to holiness through attending Life Teen high school youth group.

Prayer for Peace Pope John XXIII
Lord Jesus Christ, you are called the Prince of Peace, you are yourself our peace and reconciliation, who so often said, "Peace to you," grant us peace.
Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice, and brotherly love.
Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace.
Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace.
May all peoples on the earth become as brothers and sisters.
May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all.
Although the body has many parts, it is one body. We, though many, are one body in Christ. We are the Church. Not a building. Not the staff of the parish, not the hierarchy alone --- all of us together are Church and all of us must respond to the Holy Spirit and build the Kingdom of God. Give some thought and prayer to trying one of the parish ministries if you are not involved already. Click here for a list of ministries. It will benefit you, it will benefit us as a community and it will spread the Good News.
Whether you were baptized Catholic as a child or you’ve
only recently decided to see what the Catholic Church is
about, we are glad you are here.
