YOUTH



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.

WEEKLY FORMATION

6:00 PM ON SUNDAYS

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 Mtr. Teresa if you are interested in participating in the next series of classes.

ABOUT THE YOUTH COUNCIL

Throughout the year, our youth group meets to plan social events, service projects, and trips that allow them to express and explore their faith. Under the leadership of our Youth Council officers, with the support of adults, our young people are empowered to enact the plans they make and are directly involved in all steps of the planning and execution of youth events.

 

At the beginning of each year, the Youth Council is given a budget for programming. The Youth Council Treasurer oversees the finances of the Youth Council and leads any fundraising events. The Youth Council Secretary oversees communications to youth members and helps foster community by keeping up with attendance and prayer requests. All of this is led by the Youth Council President who encourages, delegates, and assists youth members with their various duties at Ascension.

 

All Middle and High School youth are invited to participate in and join the planning for all youth events at Ascension.
