“Dear young people, let yourselves be taken over by the light of Christ, and spread that light wherever you are.”
Saint John Paul II
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.
UPDATE: All Youth Ministry gathered events are cancelled through April. We will post new information here concerning the LIGHT program (including mini-courses, service projects, Confirmation prep classes, etc.).

It’s been a crazy few weeks. There’s a lot up in the air, and we’re not sure when we’ll start gathering at the church again – but that doesn’t mean youth nights have to stop…
Thousands of teenagers from across the country are gathering on Sunday nights for the BIGGEST YOUTH NIGHT EVER. It’s called ProjectYM Live and each week it’ll feature some of the biggest speakers and worship leaders in the Catholic youth ministry world.
Our parish is signed up to participate – all teens have to do is head to PROJECTYM.COM/WATCH this Sunday at 7pm Central.
Two quick notes:
Ps. Though this event is geared at teenagers, parents are invited to watch along with them!
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.
