Your word is a lamp before my feet and a light for my journey.”
-Psalm 119:105 CEB
YOUTH AT ASCENSION
Adolescence is a time of exploration and transition. Through our Youth Council, our young people take ownership of their community. Supported by a team of caring adults, our youth are given the tools to live out their faith as leaders in our parish. Service projects, pilgrimages, social events, and Bible study are all part of our youth offerings.
6:00 PM ON SUNDAYS (6-12TH GRADE)
YOUTH AND OUTREACH CENTER
Each week our youth group meets to build deeper connections with each other and our faith community through Bible study, prayer, outreach, and games. Led by a team of caring adults, we strive to be an affirming space where the big questions can be asked and examined together. We are always looking for people to donate snacks for Sunday evening. Please contact Eva Barraza if you'd like to help out!
CONFIRMATION | 13+
Confirmation is the sacramental rite in which the candidates express a mature commitment to Christ and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop. Those who were baptized at an early age are invited to make a mature public affirmation of their faith. Confirmation classes will help prepare candidates for the sacrament as we explore the church's teachings and develop our own faith identity. Contact Fr. Paul Klitzke if you are interested in participating in the next series of classes.
SERVING IN WORSHIP | 10:30 AM SUNDAYS
Youth are encouraged to lead through service in our community and worship services. Teens can serve as acolytes, readers, youth vergers, ushers, and greeters. For more information, contact Eva Barraza.
PARENTS OF YOUTH
Parents are the primary providers of faith formation for their children. At Ascension, we are blessed to work alongside our parents in the formation of their teenagers. During youth formation, there are offerings for parents allowing for family formation.
