Immacolata Parish offers Life Teen Sr. High Youth Ministry! This program is jam packed with some awesome events/trips you don't want to miss! The high schoolers meet for their Life Night every Sunday evening after the 5pm Mass at Immacolata, from 6-8pm.

We meet in the Youth Room under of the rectory. Just come down the stairs on the right side of the building, red door. We begin the night with snacks and socializing/games. This is an awesome opportunity for the young people of the Church to grow closer to Christ while having fun with their friends.

Parental Note:  This week discusses anxiety.

SENIOR HIGH FALL RETREAT: Hearing God’s Voice

God spoke each of us into existence and desires a personal relationship with us.

Wednesday-Saturday, January 27-30th 8th-12th Grade Pro-Life OYM Event

GENERATION LIFE: Love Thy Neighbor

We are still working out all of the details but here is the plan. We are not traveling to D.C. this year. The OYM has decided that trying to manage a group of 4,500 teens and adults in the midst of the pandemic would be a logistical burden just to get them there and back home with social distending requirements.

 

We have a large enough group to host our own event here in the St. Louis Metropolitan area. Hence why the theme this year is, “Love Thy Neighbor” 

 

Cost will be only $25 which includes amazing speakers, praise and worship with Carrie Bajzath and Karl Zimmerman, and of course some GenLife Swag!

 

In place of the traditional send off of the busses on Wednesday night we will still have a rally event but better and bigger than ever. Thursday and Friday are still being worked out as what we want to do with our group.

 

*Bonus for the parents* They won’t have to miss any classes this year!

 

We will conclude on Saturday with another huge OYM Rally from 2-5pm.

Keynote speaker will be: Ryan Bombergerfrom Radiance Foundation

We will also have Adoration and the best Praise & Worship in the country!

 

Because of the nature of the event this year there will most likely be restrictions as to how many people can attend due to social distancing rules and regulations. Right now the cap is at 1,600 people (please note above 4,500 normally attend) so needless to say, we want to register right away to ensure our in-person spots!!!


Please have your money (and forms once supplied) to me no later than October 7th. The money can still be refunded if your plans/availability changes up until that date **OCTOBER 7TH** but after that there will be no refunds. You might be able to sell your spot to a replacement as additional people will be able to sign up after that date but I cannot guarantee them an in-person spot (actually I may not be able to do that for anyone depending on how quickly they fill the spots!)

 

More information will be posted on our Instagram and Facebook pages.

 

Please reach out to Kevin Good, Coordinator of Youth Ministry if you have any questions or concerns.
