Youth Group Meeting/News

Youth Group

Youth Group is always open to all students in grades 7-12.  

Youth do not have to be parishioners at either Immaculate Conception or St. John the Apostle, youth do not even have to be practicing Catholics or enrolled in PSR.  Everyone is always welcome.  Come when you can to whatever events you choose to come to.
atch for emails from Brenda and Candi (if you do not currently receive emails, please contact us at the parish email, and we'll add you to our email list.  

Youth Group is not currently having face-to-face meetings.  Please refer back to this web page for updates.  We hope to resume regular meetings at some point, but are unable to provide an exact date at this point.  There may be some things that we can do that do not require us to actually meet face-to-face or there may be events outside of the parish that some of our families might like to attend together.  We'll try to keep you informed of options.  There will be monthly events planned by the Vincentian Marian Youth Group and we do encourage you to follow them and to participate with other teens from the area in these VMY activities.

This group works, prays and plays together!


No meetings or events planned  at this time.

Be sure to arrow down to the VMY information for activities being hosted by Vincentian Marian Youth.

Please pray for success in getting out the pro-life message.

DIY Lawn Games Continues!  Youth Group has been discussing various lawn games that we can build and put together, and we have begun construction. Finished games will be available for Youth Group use and also provided to the parish for use at special events.  Youth are asked to look around their homes for items that can be re-purposed for use as part of a DIY game.  Please discuss with parents.  All ideas/suggestions welcome!
