Faith Formation for Youth

The Middle School Youth Group

The Middle School Youth Group is a space for our young teenagers, grades 6 to 8, to meet for prayer, education, service, and community. Our group meets every Sunday from 9:15am to 10:15am in the William Bichsel Social Hall, as well as other fun and service-oriented events scheduled each month.

The High School Youth Group

The High School Youth Group is a time for our teenagers from grades 9 to 12 to meet for prayer, formation, service, and community. This group meets approximately twice each month from 12pm to 2pm in the William Bichsel, SJ Hall. We also celebrate Mass once a month with Fr. Steve or Fr. Matthew, followed by a potluck dinner. Additional social and service-based events are scheduled each month.

Confirmation Preparation for High School Students

Confirmation Preparation for the 2017-2018 year will begin at the end of this school year (Spring 2017) with information sessions, planning assistance, and one-on-one meetings with families. Youth who will be between the ages of 16 and 18 by April 2018 are welcome to begin this process!

Youth Ministry Liturgies

Youth Ministry Liturgies, Music, and Hospitality Our youth are active participants at the Masses of St. Leo! Youth-led liturgies occur monthly, on a rotating basis, at the weekend Masses. Youth from grades 6 to 12 are invited to participate in Mass as the acolyte, Eucharistic minister, lector, usher. We also invite youth to serve in our music as cantor, choir members, or instrumentalists. Rehearsals occur the Saturday prior to the liturgy. Our youth are also invited to act as hospitality ministers after select Masses - greeting and serving snacks for our fellow parishioners.
