Holy Martyrs is starting a youth group! For students in Middle and High School, we will begin meeting together for Mass on Thursdays at 6:30PM - starting Thursday, September 13.
Following the Mass, we'll have Adoration and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament from 7-7:50pm.
We'll have a time for refreshments and fellowship before breaking into small groups and finishing at 9PM.
Small groups are currently two: one for Middle and one for High School. They include talks by a speaker, or religious education courses, or social events, all intentionally designed to bond the youth together and also into an intricate part of the parish family.
The religious education courses steer our program. Middle school students will use the Faith & Life Series, while High School students will use curriculum from Word on Fire.
These courses are bases from which we launch and are by no means all-encompassing; each class delves into Scripture, Sacred Tradition, history, philosophy, apologetics, and evangelism.
