Life Teen

Life Teen


Life Teen is an international Catholic movement that serves the Church by providing resources and faith experiences that help lead teens closer to Christ. This is accomplished through a vibrant Eucharistic spirituality and by creating widespread opportunities for teens to grow in their faith. Trained youth ministers and young adult catechists lead the teens deeper into their Catholic faith in the Life Night experience.


Here at St. Mary Church, teens involved in Life Teen participate in annual events such as our Bowling Night and a Mass and Bonfire on the Beach. As a faith community, the teens grow in understanding of what it means to be young and Catholic in the new millennium. The teens are affirmed, educated, and challenged to live the Gospel.


Please contact Roger Erickson, Youth Minister, at for information.
