High School Youth Group Wednesday 7-8:30pm

Mission:

The goal of the youth groups is to provide the youth of the parish a fun faith-filled environment that will help each person grow in their relationship with God.  We meet every week, year round in the youth room and focus in on the areas of catechesis, spirituality, social justice, and building community.  We also offer many retreat opportunities and social activities to keep the youth busy such as our summer and fall retreats, CYC Convention, Bible study, worship nights, book club, ski trips, broom hockey, rafting, folf, camping, caving, lock-ins, weekly service projects, and much much more!  Don’t miss out and if you have any questions please contact Brian Shea at brians@stbernardblgs.org.
