High School Ministry
Our Lady of Mount Carmel has implemented Life Teen as our Christian Formation program for 9-12 grades. Life Teen is an international Catholic youth ministry and catechesis program that seeks to lead teens closer to Christ. The Life Teen catechesis or Christian Formation “classes” are called Life Nights.
Life Teen is 100% Catholic, teaching the totality of the Truth of our faith, challenging teens to live that same faith. Sacramental preparation for Confirmation is included during the Life Nights, in addition to supplemental times of preparation.
All 9th-12th grade members of the parish should participate in the Life Teen program as their Christian Formation. Coupled with fulfilling their Sunday Obligation of attending Mass each Sunday and Life Nights, we offer additional retreats and youth group activities throughout the year.
Life Teen is not taught by individual catechists, but led by a CORE TEAM of adults who are active in the life of the parish and work each week praying for the teens, connecting with them in a relational setting, and teaching the truth in a comfortable but content-filled program.
Join us for our Fall Retreat! This is for anyone in 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade of High School. We travel to YMCA Camp Silver Beach and have fun, pray, and grow in faith together. The cost to attend is $100 and includes travel to and from the retreat, meals during the retreat, and a t-shirt. The theme this year is "Discover". The discovery is about our faith and the
