High School Youth Ministry
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 6:00-8:00 p.m. on the playground or in the multi-purpose room (located across from the playgroung gates). Please don't forget your mask. All high school youth from our parish, school, and the wider community - both Catholic and non-Catholic - are always welcome! If you would like to assist as an adult leader, please let us know through email or by calling us!
Recap of Christmas Lights Trip
We had such a great time looking at Christmas lights this week with our friends during youth group. We saw some beautiful decorations, and we are so grateful for the time we shared together. We were reminded to bring the light of Christ to others and to allow him to shine through us. May we always find joy in finding the light. Thank you so much for coming!

How can you be a light to others?
What do you think it means to allow Jesus to shine through you?
When we face dark situations, what can we do to remember that the Light of the World is on our sides?
Thank you for your generosity and support in the Food for Our Journey service project! We were able to assemble almost 100 blessing bags for our neighbors in Birmingham who do not have homes. God bless you!
Featured FORMED Selection: Adventus- A Spiritual Pilgrimage
On behalf of the Augustine Institute, we are offering Adventus: A Spiritual Pilgrimage to everyone this Advent and Christmas Season. In light of the separation we face as communities, this special documentary allows Catholics all around the world to unite and make a spiritual pilgrimage to the Holy Land to see the places associated with Christ’s Birth. May this presentation allow us welcome Christ. Come, Lord, Jesus- we are waiting for you!
Want to sign up an adult leader with our high school students? Please let us know! We really want to thank you for your desire to serve our Lord through young people. Young people are so impressionable, and it helps to have as many positive Catholic influences surrounding them so that they make good choices. Being a teenager is tough, and we want our students to know that they are loved and supported.
Please make sure you've completed your youth protection training and turned in your background check at least three days before working with our students.
