Middle School Youth Ministry


 
 
 

What it is: Faith Spark is St. Odilia's new youth ministry program for 6th-9th graders, designed to pump up our youth and inject some excitement into our experience of faith!

With live music, funny videos by our leaders, and high-energy games, these nights are sure to spark some interest in our 6th—9th graders. And the youth-oriented messages will help students take those first steps in their faith! If this is our teens’ first experience with youth ministry, we want it to be an awesome one!
Date/Time: Wednesdays, 6:30 - 8:00 PM - Check the full schedule for the year!
2016 - 2017: Sept. 21, Oct. 5, Nov. 2, Dec. 14, Jan. 11, Feb. 1, March 15, April 5, May 3, June 7

What it is: Lifeline is a huge teen mass and event that draws over 1,000 people per event! There are excellent, youth-oriented homilies and fantastic music by Christian rock group SONAR. Each month after mass there is a keynote speaker, concert, or breakout sessions. The event is hosted by NET Ministries, and features students from dozens of parishes each month. St. Odilia organizes a group to travel to and attend the events most months, and we also get dinner before the event - check below for details on registering and joining our group for the trip!

Date/Time: The 1st Saturday of each month, November-May
Times are usually 3:30 PM - 10:00 PM (but check prior to event as some months differ)

Location: Event is at NET Center in West St. Paul, we carpool from the Faith Formation building
To Register: Register online with the link below, or turn in registration form and payment by the due date. Registration for the November 5, 2016 event (the kickoff for the next school year) is due by the Wednesday prior (November 2).

What it is: "Encountering Christ in Prayer and in Each Other." These words sum up what our new program is about. It's not a class, youth group, or source of entertainment, but an ongoing retreat experience and way of growing with each other!
There are aspects of our retreats that really resonate wtih the teens, and we're translating those elements to a weekly opportunity. We want teens at Emmaus to encounter God, have time to relax, talk about faith or life, and form deep and meaningful relationships.
Many of our students had an initial encounter with who Jesus Christ is, and can be, in their lives - whether in Adoration, in prayer ministry, or just seeing Him through their caring leaders. We want to bring those same leaders, and those same elements of prayer and discussion, together each week! 

Each night starts with authentic fellowship and sharing, in small groups the students choose for themselves. That's followed by teaching/ enrichment - most of which comes from the 6 PM mass, followed by pizza in "Intermission." After pizza we have a short story about Jesus, and end the night with worship! An optional "After Hour" will give teens the chance to have more follow up discussions or 1-on-1s, or hang out and play games/have snacks!

Date/Time: Sundays, 5:00 - 8:00 PM (includes mass) or 5-9 PM if staying for the "After Hour"
2017 Dates: Jan. 22, Jan. 29, Feb. 19, March 5
