L.I.G.H.T. Senior High Youth Ministry


“Dear young people, let yourselves be taken over by the light of Christ, and spread that light wherever you are.”

Saint John Paul II


What is L.I.G.H.T. Youth Ministry?

The L.I.G.H.T. (Living in God’s Holy Truth) program is designed to nourish and strengthen faith formation during all four years of high school. The courses and activities within the program are geared toward strengthening the high school teens’ relationship with Jesus, increasing their desire to serve and affirming their understanding of the Catholic Church.

The L.I.G.H.T. program encompasses four “Basic” faith themes:  Profession of Faith, Sacraments of Faith, Life of Faith, and Prayer in the Life of Faith.  Through thought-provoking mini-courses, faith sharing small groups, youth group activities, retreats, social activities, and service and discipleship projects, the teens will understand that faith is a journey for life and that the sacrament of Confirmation becomes part of the journey — not the end of the journey.
