High School Youth Ministry

Youth ministry for High Schoolers

All high school students in grades 9-12 are invited to participate in our program!

High School Youth Ministry meets Sunday evenings, September 10, 2023 - April 28, 2024 from 6-8 pm, following the 5 pm Mass.

High School Youth Ministry at St. John Neumann is very well-rounded! This fall, our teens will gather for a meal and community time at 6 pm. Sunday evenings will be led by Sam Struppa, St. John Neumann's Youth Ministry and Confirmation Coordinator, and two Damascus Missionaries from the Jesus Movement Affiliate Program. Each night will include dinner, social time/games, a faith-based message, and small group time to process the evening. Once a month, we will incorporate a large group event for our teens.

Outside of Sunday evenings, there are many opportunities to grow in discipleship, service, and leadership. These extras are where our teens get to grow more deeply in their relationship with Christ and our community here at St. John Neumann.

We invite all high school teens to join us this fall, from 6-8 pm in the Faith & Family Center!

Download the High School Registration/Permission Form (below) and mail to the parish office or email to Sam Struppa.

High School families are asked to make a $200 donation for meals. Payments can be made online by clicking the WeShare button below and choosing Family of Faith.
