Life Teen: Leading Teens Closer to Christ Begins at St. Joseph Parish! Kickoff begins on
Sunday, September 13, 2015 with the 5:00 PM Mass – Dinner and Life Night to follow.

The basic components of Life Teen in a parish incorporate: Weekly youth Mass, Weekly catechetical Life Nights, Justice and service opportunities, Annual teen and Core retreats, Relational ministry development, Community building that engage teens in the life of the parish while advocating their needs

Life Teen also provides resources and opportunities for: Weekly Bible studies, Weekly XLT prayer experiences with Eucharistic Adoration, Teen events (Conferences and Inspirational experiences), Teen leadership development, Catholic summer experiences and much more!

Teens learn about the Mass by being “full, active and conscious” members of the community. Teens not only engage in the liturgy, but also serve as leaders of hospitality, altar servers, lectors, ushers, musicians, vocalists and, when allowed, extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist.
