LIFE TEEN HS YOUTH MINISTRY FAITH FORMATION REGISTRATION 2023-2024
For your convenience, we have a notary at the Church office or at the Youth Center.
LIFE TEEN CALENDAR
FALL 2023 – SPRING 2024
A program like this can only be run by parish support. I have to say that it’s been a joy to watch students grow but it has also been a joy to work with a great group of adults and parents who mentor students. We are always looking for more people who would be dedicated and called to minister to our youth. The commitment is once a week, either Wednesday with our Middle School students or Sunday evening with our High School students. If you feel like God is nudging your heart right now, please email email@example.com and let her know what grade level you would like to work with.
LIFE TEEN Meals 2023-24
We need your help! Families get together and come up with a meal for 100 teens for our Sunday Nights Life Teen gathering. Easy food, nothing fancy. Prepare in Parish Hall Kitchen or at home.
Examples of meals: chili, wraps, hot dogs & chips, chicken & rice, pizza, tacos, chicken nuggets, sandwiches, pasta, pulled pork sandwiches, hamburgers, breakfast for dinner…..
Meals must be ready to serve by 6:15pm in Parish Hall kitchen. Click here to sign up

Every High School student at St. Timothy should be registered for our 2023-2024 Youth Ministry and Faith Formation. We believe that when a teenager encounters Christ through the beauty of the Catholic faith, they will transform their parish, community, and culture. Teenagers today are a lot different than teenagers from 20, 10, or even five years ago. As teen culture changes and evolves the way we present the timeless truth of the Catholic faith needs to evolve, as well. LIFE TEEN is responsive, innovative, and engaging. We empower a team of Catholic adults to accompany young people as disciples. It’s fun and relevant. Students will be able to access our amazing Youth Center and gym as they build community and friendships with other fellow Catholic students. Also, does your Youth need Confirmation?In order for your Youth to be Confirmed this year (2024) they must have attended Catholic Faith Formation the previous year (2022-2023) and be entering at least 10th, 11th or 12th Grade. We realize sports and other extra curricular activities get in the way occasionally on Sunday nights but registering students gives them access to all our activities throughout the year including trips and retreat. Not only that but parents will also receive amazing online tools, resources and support groups that are sure to help you as a parent. So parents please register today!!!
