JUNIOR HIGH YOUTH GROUP

Inviting all 7th and 8th grade students!

Come be a part of an exciting new adventure as St. Colette continues our youth group just for 7th and 8th graders! Each meeting will be different; combining fellowship, faith, service and fun! Friends are welcome! We meet in the Youth Center from 6-8pm, see below for upcoming meeting dates.

Meetings are on Thursdays in the Youth Center of the Parish Offices Building, beginning at 6pm with Dinner.

2019-2020 Meetings: **Sept. 19 **Oct. 17 **Nov. 14 **Dec. 19 **Jan. 16 **Feb. 20 **Mar. 19 **Apr. 16

St. Colette has joined together with other Catholic Parishes in our Vicariate to provide a monthly event for those students in 7th-8th grade. Past events have included hayrides and corn mazes in the fall, an Advent Service project or Las Posadas celebrations in December, Cosmic Bowling, movie outings, laser tag and much more! Whether your Junior High students are in our traditional Religious Education program, SCAP, homeschooled or enrolled in Catholic School—ALL are welcome for one or all the events. As part of our ongoing evangelization, we encourage our young people to bring friends with them, even if they aren’t Catholic. Many young people aren’t comfortable attending an event without a friend, so friends are always welcome, as long as they are respectful of prayer times.
