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! 

Greetings everyone!

Our LifeNight kick- off was amazing! It was so much fun getting to hang out with all of you, play Wubble Volleyball, and especially get to pray with you. 

Kory gave a GREAT opening talk for the year year and here are TWO things we want you to remember from it.

  1. Remember  Ted Leonosis?  He was the executive that got in a plane crash and lived. He said, “I don’t want to be a passive observer of my own life.”We all want this. We don’t want to waste our lives, and if we want this – more importantly – if we believe this – it means that our decisions and our actions matter.
  2. The "American dream" tells us that if we do what we want, if we become who we want to be, then we will be happy Jesus says something different.
    1. Matthew 10:39 - Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it."
    2. Matthew 26:24 - “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and and follow me."
                 But follow him where? To the Father. This was Jesus’ whole mission – to bring people back to the heart of God, to the heart of the Father

Thanks so much for coming and we can't WAIT to see you next week! We are going to start with a fun game and some great snacks! Thennn we are going to explore the question Jesus asks his disciples: Who do you say that I am? annnnd are going to do a close reading of St. Peter’s confession of faith that Jesus is the “Christ, the Son of the Living God” (Mt 16:16).  annnnnd don't forget that we have open Frassati Room starting at 4:30PM
