Teen Service Opportunities

Service is an integral part of our Catholic faith. Several projects are offered throughout the year for Confirmation candidates as well as all interested teens. Opportunities range from events that serve our own parish to the larger community. We are happy to sign off on service hours! Bring your completed service hours form to the Religious Education office for the PSR Program Coordinator to review. (For parish ministry events, ask the supervising adult to sign off on your hours). Listed below are ongoing service opportunities offered within our parish. Check back frequently for more dates!

Catholic HEART Interest Meetings

Tuesday, November 14th - 5:00 pm

Do you have a HEART to share the love of Christ? Do you have a HEART for serving others—the neglected, brokenhearted and the marginalized? Would you like your HEART to be inspired to live as a disciple of Christ by serving others as a way of life? Do you want to grow in your Catholic faith through the sacraments, prayer and involvement in social service? Then Catholic HEART Workcamp may be right for you! 

Teens and parents are invited to learn more about Catholic HEART Workcamp at one of our upcoming Interest Meetings. This year, we will be serving in Louisville, KY from June 17th-23rd. Teens who are currently in 9th-11th Grade are eligible to apply once they have attended an interest meeting AND completed the application requirements. To start the process, both the teen and a parent MUST attend an interest meeting together to get an application and learn what is required before applying. Please join us at one of the dates listed below:

  • Tuesday, November 14th - 5:00 pm, classroom 1

The sooner you attend an Interest Meeting, the sooner you can start your application. Space is limited, and the requirements must completed before you register, so don't delay! Applications and deposits are due by January 24th!
