Youth Ministry High School
Mission and Meetings
The St. Francis Xavier High School Youth program (grades 9-12) provides a great opportunity for our youth to meet new friends, have fun, enjoy fellowship, participate in mission and service, and grow in their Catholic faith while growing closer to Christ and His Church.
Our regular meetings are held on Sundays from 6-8 PM in the Parish Hall. All high school youth from our parish, school, and wider community - both Catholic and non-Catholic - are always welcome!

Life Teen Summer Camp Registration
The Life Teen Summer Camp registration form and a $100 deposit are due by September 18 to secure your child's spot at camp. Because many people across the country want to spend part of their summer at Camp Hidden Lake, Life Teen will assign the date of the camp once students have been registered as a collective group. St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church is asking to attend one of these sessions: July 16-21, July 23-28, and July 30-August 4. These dates are for students who are currently in 8th-12th grades. We will not know until September 26 which week our high school students will be attending. We realize that this causes strain in attempting to plan summer vacations/other activities; however, that is Life Teen's policy. We appreciate your patience in this matter, and we will let you know as soon as possible what week we will be attending. The total cost of the camp will be $600 per student. We realize that this cost has gone up; however, this is only because Life Teen's insurance has gone up. Here is the link for the camp scholarship form. Your scholarship application must be turned in with your deposit. We also need chaperones to attend, too; please fill out the chaperone registration form.
March for Life Registration
Our students will leave the afternoon of January 17 and return early on Sunday, January 21. The diocese doesn't think that students will need to leave school early on January 17; however, that could change. To be considered as attending, the non-refundable deposit and student registration must be received by October 1. The cost to attend the March for Life is $300, plus spending money and meals. A second $100 is due by November 1, and the final balance of the trip is due by December 4. We will be staying at the Embassy Suites in Alexandria, VA, which will offer breakfast for the students/chaperones. We will also need chaperones to attend. Chaperones will not be charged to attend the March for Life pilgrimage. Chaperones, please register here. It will most likely be VERY COLD in Washington, so please make sure your child packs warm clothes/layers. The diocese will provide knit caps for the students to wear during the march, so that our group is easily identifiable. If you are not able to attend, be sure to watch for us on EWTN!
