Youth Group Meeting/News

New Year for Youth Group! 
2019-2020 Parish School of Religion is back in session and Youth Group meetings are back on Wednesday nights following P.S.R!

Youth Group is open to students in grades 7-12.  Youth do not have to be parishioners at either Immaculate Conception or St. John the Apostle, youth do not have to be Catholic and youth do not have to attend P.S.R.  Everyone is always welcome.  Come when you can to whatever events you choose to participate in.

Service Activity
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!
