Youth Ministry High School Youth Group Grades 9th through 12th

 

Our Youth Ministry provides High School Youth Group activities to meet our teens spiritual, social and service needs during their high school years. We use the Lifeteen program to help teach Catholic basics, apologetics and social justice throughout the calendar year (not just during school year months!). This program does not have any attendance requirements – you and your teen participate in the things that suit your needs and schedule. High School Youth Group meets on Sunday evenings in the upstairs portion of the Brisson House, 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Please see the Youth Ministry page for more information or contact our Youth Ministry Coordinator, Denys Davis, at holycrossyouthministry@yahoo.com or 336-497-1408 (text or phone).
