Youth Group

Q and A with the OLG Youth Group

Did you know that OLG has an active youth group? Started 14 years ago, the OLG youth group has expanded and grown to meet the needs of our young people.

Who is part of the OLG Youth Group?
Kids in grades 6-12 are welcome to join any youth group activity!
When does the youth group meet?
Our normal meeting times are from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm on the first and third Wednesday of each month
Where does the youth group meet?
Our regular meetings are held in the Parish Life Center.
What do you do during youth group meetings?
During our regular meetings, the kids in youth group play games, participate in team-building activities, learn more about our Catholic faith, and hang out with friends.
Does the youth group do anything outside of the regular meetings?
Of course! The youth group helps with various church activities and participates in different things:
• Decorating the Church grounds for Christmas
• Collecting food for the homeless food pantry
• Participate in the Life Chain Demonstration and rosary
• Helping provide for homeless teens in the county
• Presenting the Living Stations of the Cross each Lent
• Yearly Day Retreat

We encourage all our members to be active members of the parish. Many of them assist with VBS, catechism, and various parish get-togethers and projects. Most of our members are active in one or more ministries, including the youth choir, altar serving, readers, and even Eucharistic Ministering!

Who is in charge?
While we have several adults who chaperone our activities, all our meetings and retreats are planned and run by our team of peer ministers. Our peer ministers are young people who have received confirmation as well as additional special training that allows them to effectively lead our youth group.

We invite you to come and see what the OLG Youth Group is all about. Check us out on Facebook: OLG Youth Group (: and on Instagram: OLGBHYouthGroup.
