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!

Join us at Unleashed on Wednesday nights at 7:30PM!
Views about the Church can be as varied as its members or critics. What exactly is the Church? How can it be a trustworthy representation of Christ while filled with flawed human beings? How is it both ancient and timeless, seemingly outdated yet more necessary and relevant than ever? Why should the voice of the Church be heard above all the other voices claiming to speak the truth?  See more here

Join OLG Youth Ministry as we gather together a few times during the year to start our day out right! We all go to the 9:00 AM Mass at Our Lady of Grace and then we gather together for fun and friends over some good breakfast at Perkins or Jerry’s after Mass. See more...
