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.

Good Saturday morning, please see below responses to the Mass.

Entrance Antiphon - Cf. Jdt 13:18-19
Blessed are you, O Virgin Mary, by the Lord God Most High,/ above all women on the earth;/ for he has so exalted your name/ that your praise shall be undying on our lips.

Responsorial Psalm 95
R/ (1 Cor 16:22b; see Rv 22:20c) Marana tha! Come, Lord Jesus!

Spiritual Communion Prayer
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Communion Antiphon – Cf. Lk 1:48
All generations will call me blessed,/ for God has looked on his lowly handmaid.

Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

St Michael the Archangel
Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God
cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
