Here at OLG our  High School Youth Ministry (anyone who has been confirmed in 8th-12th grade) is meant to engage young people where they are at in their journey to respond to the ultimate call of all of our lives: the call to be an intentional disciple of God. 

In all of our ministires we bring the Gospel to young people by the art of living well - and it begins and ends with Christ. There are so many places here at OLG for everyone to get involved in order to share their gifts.  Contact us today to see where God is calling you! 
LifeNights are the best nights! 
Greetings all!

Last week we decorated the 
FRASSATI ROOM for CHRISTMAS! It looks amazing! 


Don't forget! We don't have LifeNight this week! It is the day of Mercy at OLG- that means we are having confessions ALL DAY at OLG! Remember to come and stop by! The Frassati Room will be open from 4-6PM if you want to grab some coffee and work on homework! 

God bless, and see you next week for our Christmas party!

Greetings all! 

Yesterday at our LifeNight we started out with doing an Ignation Exam prayer where we meditated on the past week and what we are truly grateful for- then we got to have some fun with Arts and Crafts! 

The Liturgy Commission has invited all of OLG to participate in their Advent focus this year. In keeping with the year’s focus of gratitude, they are posing the question : "What are you bringing to the manger?” There will be an empty manger in the commons and small “gift boxes” available in which to put a note of gratitude. The “gift” will then be placed in the manger.

While they do have many  boxes already "made", they hope each family will take the template home and make a family project out of it, and bringing it back the next week. You can color the cruciform shape, cut it out and tape it up! What a great activity to do right after Thanksgiving!  
We want to fill the manger with gratitude! It will then be placed in the baptistery during Christmastide. I want to encourage you to duplicate the pattern (attached) and perhaps work on this at home just like we did during LifeNight!

ANNNND to close up the night we played a bunch of new games- in the hope that everyone would stop trying to get us to play Sardines for the 38741093465134956093847589 time ;) 

Thank you to all who came, and we can't WAIT to see you all next week, so we can DECORATE THE FRASSATI ROOM for CHRISTMAS!

Last night at LifeNight we played a new game "Slap the Knee" It was awesome. BUT there may now be some "blood-feuds" between a few people..... ooooooh well!

We did our LAST Lectio Divina for the year! Starting after Thanksgiving we are going to do a different opening prayer! 

FINALLY Matthew shared with us the unique way that God speaks to him through Scripture- it was great getting to see the different ways that words formed even more words, AND the hiddedn meanings. 

Don't forget! NO LIFENIGHT next Wednesday! Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving! 
Check out our "Knee Slap" Duels here!

LifeNight Wrap up!: October 31st and November 8th

Greetings everyone!

On Halloween we had a scary good time carving pumpkins, eating cookies, playing sardines, and psychiatrist! It was a great night to just hang out and have fun! Check them all out below!

THEEEEEEN last night we talked religion and politics! We shared about what voting means to us, and why it matters. Everyone was given a challenge for the week- to find an opportunity to pray for ONE HOUR for our country! Check out the take home sheet HERE.

LifeNight Wrap up: October 10th!

Thanks to everyone for coming to LifeNight last night ANNNND if you couldn't make it we missed you! We had a special guest last night, Gabri! She is a OLG youth ministry Alum, AND was even our intern for a year! She came to share her vocation story with us- it was amazing. 

"My name is Gabri MacInnes. I grew up in Minnesota, but my family recently moved to Florida. I am the youngest of three daughters and I grew up in a Catholic family. We went to Mass every Sunday and my mom taught us everything she knew about the faith. I attended a private Catholic school from kindergarten through eighth grade and attended a public high school. I then went to a Catholic college." to read more about her story go here  AND more importantly how to help her go here

LifeNight Wrap-up! October 3rd

Last night was our SECOND LifeNight of the year!  We opened up the night by playing one of our favorite games- Word Smoothie! You can see all of the fun we had above! We then entered into prayer with Lectio Divina using Ecclesiastes 3:1-9 "Everything Has Its Time". We then watched a video from Father Mike about what it means to LIVE in the present moment. During small group we really went into what it means for us to live in the right now. Check out our questions below! 

- What stage of life/season do you wish you were in? Why? 
- What stage of life/season are you in RIGHT now? 
-What is it like for you to be patient? Is it easy, hard, don't really notice it? Why or why not? 
- What is your work of the day? What does God want you to work on RIGHT now? 
- What do you think about the "Sacrament of the Present" moment?

Ecclesiastes 3:1-9 Everything Has Its Time
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break  down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate;a time for war, and a time for peace

LifeNight Wrap-up! 9/26

Last night was our FIRST LifeNight of the year! It was great getting to meet everyone AND get some amazing cupcakes! For our first LifeNight we learned about who Pier Giorgio Frassati was- we watched a great video about getting to know him and then entered into some small group time where we went over these questions:

- If you had to describe what/who a Saint was... how would you?
- What Saint do you most identify with? Don't have one that you identify with? Why?
-Frassati often said that he wanted to "Live, not exsist." He wanted to live in a full way, because he knew that God made us to go to the top. What do you think about that?
- Frassati lived his life in surrender. Surrendering to his family. Surrendering to God.  What does it mean to you to surrender How do you surrender to God in your life?
