High School Youth Ministry (9 - 12)
Thank you for your interest in Corpus Christi’s High School Youth Program!
By sharing the teachings of the Catholic Church and accompanying the 9th - 12th graders on their faith journey, our youth will have the chance to grow in relationship with one another and with Jesus Christ. High School Youth Group presents the challenges and tools to live out their faith in everyday life.
2020 Fall Retreat
We Are Rooted
Join high school youth from St. Benedict, Corpus Christi and St. Theresa on Saturday, November 21.
Fall 2020 Updates
This past summer our youth group focused on two very important topics; the virtue of hope, and the call to put an end to racial injustice. Our virtual gatherings included games, teachings, and group discussions. It was a true joy connecting with our teens, catching up on life, and sharing the teachings of the Catholic Church.
To continue to serve the needs of our youth, we will be meeting both virtually and in-person this fall. Our virtual sessions will take place on Sundays from 6:00pm - 7:30pm for high school. Our in-person events will be "XLT Nights" one Sunday a month, which include praise and worship music, a faith-based message from a guest speaker, and Eucharistic Adoration.
The themes for our virtual sessions include self-care and the importance of growing our faith through personal prayer. The need to discuss these topics cannot be overstated. Many of us are currently struggling with anxiety, depression, fear, and worry; which shows the need to talk about caring for our minds, bodies, and souls.
As many of us are not currently able to attend Mass or religious education in person, the need to grow our faith on our own is more dire than ever before. We hope both these topics of self-care and developing our faith speak to your teen.
We are planning an in-person fall retreat on Saturday, November 21 in partnership with St. Benedict’s and St. Theresa’s youth groups. More information on that to come!
