Life Teen is a youth ministry program with a strong focus on the Eucharist. The goal of Life Teen is to create an environment to lead teens into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. It speaks to teens on all levels: emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual. Despite its phenomenal growth, it has never deviated from what it set out to be – a parish- based Catholic-centered ministry for all high school teens. With this principle in mind the St. Jerome Life Teen Group is focused on having events that allow teens to have fun and meet new friends.
Along with the fun events, since the focus of our group is the Eucharist we are called to live out what we become in the body and bread of Christ. This shows itself through service and numerous times each semester the teens will work together so that seeing God in all they truly respond with compassion and service.
