Parish Youth Ministry News
We have two upcoming big events within our Youth Ministry.
- The Luke 18 overnight retreat is for the 8th graders, which the Youth Group puts on for them. It is February 22nd and 23rd. We begin at 9am on the 22nd and end with 11:30 ass on the 23rd. Please let me know if you need a registration form.
- July 17 thru 19 is a youth group event called Steubenville for 9th thru 12th grades. It is such a fun trip you won't want to miss it! Our Youth Ministry Office with the St. Louis Archdiocese has a great program set up for us. We stay on the Missouri State campus in Springfield. We will do a fundraiser at the IHM Sausage Dinner in April to help with the costs. For more information check out https://steubystl.com/ or just google Steubenville STL Mid-America. There are some really good YouTube videos you can check out, too. We need to send in deposits, so please let me know ASAP.
Finally, some of our parish youth recently participated in the March for Life in Washington DC. We had a great time together, while witnessing to the sanctity of all life. Here are some photos of that event.
