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 classroom instruction, 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.

We want to offer you a place to connect with other parents from OLM about faith. We have a GroupMe chat room called OLM Parent Connection.

We’ll offer faith resources for parents and families as well as information on the LIGHT High School Youth Ministry. The most important feature is that it gives all of us a chance to stay in touch with each other and our God who lives and cares for us all.

  • Keep Up With L.I.G.H.T.!

Tonight’s 15:5 Teen Night focuses on Jesus’ call to love, especially in this world where hate fills the air and when we find it difficult to love others.

Pope Francis shares this:

“If a newborn child could speak, he would certainly express the fact that he feels loved by his parents”. And what parents do with the child is what God did with us: He loved us first. And this gives birth to and increases our capacity to love. This is a clear definition of love: we can love God because He loved us first. (Santa Marta, 10 January 2020)

I hope you can join us tonight as we explore this topic and offer prayers for our community and world.

Teens invited on Thursday nights at 7:30 pm for our virtual youth gathering. Teens are asked to signup and then more details on the Zoom meeting will be sent to you. Sign-Up Here: m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/60b094facab2aaa8-155
