Service Classes: Saturday or Sunday afternoons or evenings
Dates will vary; you will receive a schedule at the beginning of the school year. On many weekends, the service class will serve as our meeting on that weekend. Service projects may include helping the elderly, serving the poor, disadvantaged and at-risk homeless, feeding the hungry, working with the Angel Tree Program, working on the parish grounds, and much more. We have witnessed over the last few years how service has transformed our ministry and we are excited to bring more opportunities to our middle school students to serve as Jesus did.
Family Liturgy Nights: Sunday nights from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Middle School Students, High School Students, and their families are invited to worship together on a monthly basis on a special, Sunday evening liturgy. Middle and high school students serve by helping lead music, do the readings, and serve as altar servers, gift bearers, ushers, and extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist. Training opportunities will be available to those who would like to serve. This liturgy counts as a Sunday mass obligation…plus you can sleep in on Sunday morning once a month!
Retreat: Life on the Streets.
As in previous years, our middle school students and VIRTUS trained adults will join our high school program in pledging a weekend of solidarity with the homeless at our Life on the Streets Retreat. Participants will sleep in cardboard boxes, forego showers and luxury items, work in teams on yard work and cleaning projects for residents in need, and worship and fellowship during this unique experience. This is an optional experience for middle school students, but definitely an eye-opener. Many opportunities are available for adults to serve with us during Life on the Streets.
