Life Teen

Celebrate with Life TeenSt. Matthew’s Life Teen Ministry is committed to providing our teens with opportunities for personal growth through catechesis (religious education), fellowship, service, outreach and leadership.

The Mass - Life Teen                Sundays at 5:30 pm
At the weekly Life Teen Mass, teens and their families experience the depth of God’s love through the Word, the community and the Eucharist. Relevant preaching and contemporary music bring the Catholic Mass to life.

Life Nights                                   Sundays from 6:30 to 8:30 pm
These creative nights bring our Catholic faith to life and break open relevant issues for teens. Teens openly share and experience what it is to be a Catholic teen today. All catechetical nights are presented in line with the teachings of the Catholic Church and provide a comprehensive scope of topics. The teens are affirmed, educated and challenged to live the Gospel.

Impel Sports                     
Impel Sports seeks to provide opportunities for high school students to grow in spirit, mind and body through sports, prayer and community building. Open to ALL high school students regardless of church affiliation, athletic ability or gender. We call all of our athletes to high standards of respect and sportsmanship both on and off the field. We strive to glorify God in all areas of our lives through words, actions and example.

Teens 'n' Tutoring                    
High school teens volunteer as tutors for students in grades one through five, strengthening basic math and reading skills. Two 10-week sessions are offered; one in the fall and one in the spring. Registration days and times for each session will be posted on the website and in the parish bulletin.
