RPM- Raphael Peer Ministry

Meets on most Thursday nights from 7-9pm in the Teen Room. All high school teens are welcome! Join us to learn about your faith, play games, hear witness talks, have small and large group discussions, prayer, scripture, music, and food! Check the bulletin for updates.

In a distinctly Catholic setting, The National Catholic Youth Conference invites participants to encounter Christ, experience Church and be empowered for discipleship. 

Every other year, Catholic young people and their chaperones—youth ministers, campus ministers, parents, catechists, priests, coaches, and scout leaders—come together to pray, learn, and grow in their faith. In addition to opportunities to receive the sacraments of the Eucharist and penance, NCYC participants attend general and breakout sessions on topics relevant to living as a disciple of Christ in today’s world, visit with organizations that provide resources and other support to youth and youth ministry, spend time in personal and communal prayer, and engage in service to others.

This year’s conference will be held in Indianapolis. To register, please download and complete the ncyc youth packet and return it to Chris Traub. More information can be found at the official NCYC website.
