Seeking Holiness IN the Eucharist (SHINE)
"From the Eucharist comes strength to live the Christian life, and zeal to share that life with others." - Pope St. John Paul II
We invite all young people in grades 8-12 to be part of our Youth Ministry Group. Adults are also welcome to volunteer to help in this ministry.
For more information, please contact Jen Bartley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vision for Youth Ministry
SHINE is a way of life, a way to holiness, the means of salvation (John 6:53-65). Through Jesus Christ in the Eucharist we have all things, hope all things, love all things. Through community, worship of Jesus, and love of one another, we seek to authentically pursue the Lord. We desire to make space for God to show up in our lives, in our families, and in our community through prayer, the Sacraments, fellowship, service and evangelization.
Mission of Youth Ministry
To ignite the faith of the young people through community, catechesis and devotion in the Eucharist. Through evangelization, outreach, relational ministry, and faith formation, SHINE will provide a place for young people to encounter Jesus and His Church in an authentic way. The foundation of our mission is exploring our Trinitarian God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and how they are alive and active in our daily lives.
Our regular Youth Ministry Group meetings are held on Sunday evenings from 4-5:45pm, September through April, in Holy Family Hall. In addition, we host a Youth Ministry Winter Retreat in January and Open Hours during the summer. Please download the flyer below or check the calendar for more details.
Stay tuned for more information about next year's Steubenville Youth Conference.
We are collecting a $25 registration fee ($50 for non-parishioners) per student in Youth Ministry at the request of Father Rafal. Holy Trinity has been very generous with Youth Ministry and we are grateful for the support. We welcome extra donations to use for families that may not be able to make a contribution but also will not turn anyone away that is unable to pay the registration fee. Thank you!
