'Witnesses of Christ' Youth Group
All Youth, grades 6 through 12, are invited to join the Witnesses of Christ.
Every weekend you can plan on growing your faith with other teens. We will either have a discussion of faith, a service project or some fun activity planned.
On the first Sunday of each month we fill most of the ministries for the 10:15 Mass. Father Bill is most appreciative of the help we provide for the choir, lectors, ushers and greeters. Afterwards, we have a meal provided free of charge. Faith discussion follows and in the past we have followed the 'Chosen' program as well as talked about the Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Heavenly Virtues. Currently, we are also participating in the Mass at the University of St Mary on the third Sunday of the month.
Throughout the month, we schedule a service project and some fun activity. Some of the local service projects during the year include helping the Northeast Kansas Catholic Charities, the Sisters of the Poor of Jesus Christ and other local organizations in need of assistance. Picnics, car washes, pool parties and other events fill up the warmer months and during the cooler months we have gone to the 'Escape Room' and played some other indoor games.
During the summer months our meetings are not as regularly planned; however, we make up for the lost time by participating in different mission trips. We have supported the Archdiocese's 'Prayer and Action' mission trip - a five day mission in the local area that provides help and assistance to the less fortunate. We also have sent some of our older youth to Benedictine College for the Life Teen Leadership Conference. For a week, the youth are able to interact with youth from all over the area, grow their faith and develop some beneficial life lasting skills.
There is no cost to join the Youth Group. You will have good times, expand your faith and serve the local community with your time and talents. Please join us and bring a friend.
