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


Dear Parents and High School Teens,

High School teens new to L.I.G.H.T. (who have attended a Teen Alpha program or equivalent) are invited to go deeper in their faith by receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. We start this process by having an initial conversation with the teen, parent and a faith mentor to begin exploring discipleship and the sacrament. Please note that this is for teens NEW to the L.I.G.H.T. program (Have not yet taken a Basic mini-course). Teens who have already started L.I.G.H.T. will be completing the requirements given when they began the process.

Parents/Teens can get more information AND sign-up HERE!

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.
