Middle School Youth Ministry






Open to 6th - 8th graders
What it is: Faith Spark is St. Odilia's new youth ministry program for middle schoolers, 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 help spark some interest in faith for our kids. And the youth-oriented messages help students take those first steps in their faith. If this is our kids’ first experience with youth ministry, we want it to be an awesome one!

2017 - 2018 dates: Sept. 20, Oct. 4, Nov. 1, Dec. 6, Jan. 10, Feb. 7, March 7, April 18, May 2

Open to 7th - 12th graders
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: Registration for the 2017-2018 events will go live in September, in advance of the first event on Oct. 7. Watch for the online registration!







Open to 8th - 12th graders
What it is: Emmaus Nights are not a class or youth group, but an ongoing retreat experience! There are aspects of our retreats that really resonate with the teens, and we wanted to translate those elements into 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.

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!

Day/Time: Sundays, 5:30 - 8:30 PM (9:00 if you stay for the "After Social")
2017 Dates: Sept. 17, Sept. 24, Oct. 8, Oct. 15, Oct. 22, Nov. 5, Nov. 26, Dec. 10, Dec. 17
Location: Starts in the Courtyard, we also use the church/sanctuary!
To Register: No Registration needed, and it's free! Open to 8th-12th graders
