WHAT IS LIFETEEN?
Life Teen is a Catholic youth ministry program that began in 1985 at St. Timothy’s Catholic Church in Mesa, Arizona. There are now over 1,000 parishes around the world that have adopted the Life Teen program, which is geared towards high school teens in grades 9-12.
Our teens are given several opportunities to be on retreat. Typically, we hold the following retreats:
* Fall Retreat (weekend before Thanksgiving)
* Spring Retreat – a weekend retreat in April
* CIA Service retreat – February or March
* Senior Retreat (end of August/early September)
We also hold retreat weekends for our Core team and the parents of our teens. These retreats have given us a very special opportunity and setting for the sacrament of Reconciliation and Eucharistic Adoration.
