What is LIFE TEEN?
LIFE TEEN is nothing like any other teen program you may have experienced before. This is not your parents' CCD or CYO program! LIFE TEEN is a Roman Catholic teen ministry program that tries to lead teens to Christ through a dynamic weekly Mass and LIFE Night: a fun-filled, high energy evening that reaches teens on four levels: spiritual, emotional, social, and educational.
Mass is planned by teenagers with teenagers in mind: music that touches you, with sounds that you know: drums, electric guitars, synthesizers, even some Christian rap! The homilies deal with topics teenagers need to hear about: relationships, drugs, suicide, peer pressure, the difficulty of balancing friends, family, work, and school, and what the Gospel has to say about all these things... Imagine a church filled with teenagers singing and praising God, clapping and moving along to the music, and taking part in the great gift of the Eucharist...
What is Life Night?
LIFE Night is a 1 1/2 hour evening, from 7:00-8:30pm, filled with laughs, skits, upbeat music, bad talk show host impersonations, free food, and opportunities to discuss, learn, and pray with other teenagers who are trying to make sense of their lives, just like you are.
Who is it for?
LIFE TEEN Mass is designed for teens, or at least the young at heart. Everyone, young and old alike, is always welcome to come to Mass. Teens, bring your little sisters and brothers, your parents, even your grandparents. But especially bring your teen friends: Catholics and non-Catholics too. All are welcome. But remember, LIFE Night, which follows Mass, is a "teen-only" event.
