Mission Statement: Our mission is to respond to the social and spiritual needs of the teens in our parish and community by providing fun programs, activities, events that will leads high school teenagers into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ and His Church; to encourage them to use their individual talents in programs and ministries that interest them in order to nurture their growth as people of faith, leading them to know and love Christ and His Church!
Chaos Youth Life Nights are the catechetical component of the Life Teen program. Life Nights present the Catholic faith in a non-classroom format, making the faith relevant for teens today. Life Teen offers a 4-year curriculum of Life Nights based on the USCCB’s highschool framework of catechesis.
Catechetical Life Nights follow the USCCB’s semester theme and break open a particular tenet of the faith.
Issue Life Nights deal with specific “real world issues” that teens deal with (i.e. drinking, gossip, chastity, divorce, peer pressure, abortion, virtues, etc.). These nights help teens see how their Catholic faith is relevant to every aspect of their lives.
Social Life Nights build Christian community and friendships.
Life Teen Spirituality can best be under stood through our seven Core Values:
- Eucharistic Spirituality
- Primary Vocation
