During the school year, high school students meet in small groups at church members' homes. Youth and their adult leaders share meaningful conversations about how faith and life intersect.
If you are not currently engaged with our Life Group and would like to be, please come with a friend, or contact Alice deVries at to get connected.
Virtual Life Groups
High School students will be invited to virtual Life Groups on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM via Zoom. We will post the links for the Zoom calls on each grades’ GroupMe. If your High School student is not currently part of their grade level’s GroupMe but wants to connect with us, please contact Alice deVries at We will need their name and phone number.

Youth Council has built a close-knit community at our monthly meetings where we share a meal together, have meaningful conversations and plan our next events.
We are so grateful to our youth leaders for their active involvement in our parish-wide events. Adult leaders are Steve Garbee, Sylvia Wood, and Alice deVries.
Each year in June, 10th grade pilgrims and leaders set out on a journey to reflect on one's relationship with God, self, and other. In the past Pilgrimages have been to Canada, Alaska, Belize, Wales, Ireland, Camino de Santiago and Croatia.
This year, 23 students and 4 leaders were going to Camino de Santiago Spain June 11-19, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 virus, the pilgrimage has been postponed. The new dates are June 13-21, 2021. We are planning on taking a combined group of 10th and 11th graders on the same Pilgrimage. Those who were not able to go this year are more than welcome to go in 2021!
More information will be coming for the Pilgrimage in June 2021. We hope your child can join us!
