What is LifeTeen?
LifeTeen is the high school ministry here at St. Andrew and is focused on leading the young people in our parish to a living and active relationship with Christ and his Church. LifeTeen is open to all high school teens.
The most important part of our LifeTeen program is the Mass. Our LifeTeen Mass emphasizes a full, conscious, and active participation for all our young people by providing a welcoming environment, inspiring music, and relevant preaching. Most importantly, the LifeTeen Mass remains sacred and timeless and is always open to participants of all ages. LifeTeen Masses will be held every Sunday at 5:00pm from September through May.
High school students who have not yet received the Sacrament of Confirmation are encouraged to sign up for our Confirmation program that meets once a month during the school year on Sunday afternoon, before the LifeTeen Mass. (If you have not received Baptism or First Communion, our Confirmation program can prepare you for these sacraments as well.)
For those high school students who have already received Confirmation, we also provide ongoing spiritual formation with our program Called to be Saints, which meets once a month following the LifeTeen Mass. We also encourage all teens who have already received Confirmation be part of our Teen Leadership program. Our teen leaders work alongside our adult catechists to help mentor and guide the Confirmation students.
In addition to learning and praying together through our various ministries, we also need to take time just to build relationships and have fun. That's what our LifeNight is all about. We meet after the LifeTeen Mass for events like game nights, live music, and other social outings. LifeNights will be held one Sunday a month, following the LifeTeen Mass in the St. Andrew School Auditorium.
