Life Nights are a combination of fellowship, games, videos, talks, small groups, and of course snacks.  The Life Teen Highschool Ministry is a night of fellowship focused on growing in community and growing in faith.  Each week we explore a different area of our faith that points back to our year long theme of Unfinished, how we are all unfinished in the eyes of Christ.  Through peer and adult relationships, small groups, and relevant topics, we will grow together in our individual relationship's with God.

Every year the parish offers a wide variety of Bible Studies. In addition the Book C.L.U.B.'s also use the Bible as their main source for study. There are Bible studies meeting early morning, mid-morning, afternoons and in the evenings. They most often begin in early fall and run through the school year, but occasionally there are some that run for 4-6 weeks. Reading and studing the Bible is essential in our daily lives and spending time discussing and learning about the Bible is a great source of encouragement and ongoing faith formation.
