Steubenville STL, July 20-22, 2018
Held in Springfield, MO
Registration Opens February 8, 2018!

Students who attend YG meetings and help out at parish and YG events can earn points towards attendance.  Students who participate in fund raisers can earn points towards attendance.  It is our goal to offer enough opportunities that all of our regular Youth Group members should be able to attend Steubenville for free.  Youth who do not earn enough points may still attend with our group; however, they will be expected to pay all or at least some of their own way!

Wanted:  One male chaperone to accompany our young men at Steubenville.  Chaperones are expected to meet SEP guidelines from the Archdiocese of St. Louis.  This means attendance at a Protecting God's Children training, registration in VIRTUS,  and a background check. There is a Protecting God's Children program scheduled for Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at 6 p.m. in the Immaculate Conception Parish Hall.  Program Facilitator:  Deacon Michael Burch.  Please register for PGC at

Service Activity
DIY Lawn Games!  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 repurposed for use as part of a DIY game.  Please discuss with parents.  All ideas/suggestions welcome!
