St Maximilian Kolbe Youth Ministry is dedicated to helping high school students discover Christ and build a relationship with him, build a community of faith with each other, and be challenged to share their faith with others and be a witness of Christian life. As part of our youth ministry, we offer weekly youth group meetings, an evangelization training program, bi-annual retreats and service opportunities.
To participate in any St. Max Youth Ministry programs a Medical Release form for this school year needs to be on file.
High School Spring Retreat - Out of Ashes
Location: Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center
This retreat is open to all high school students who want to deepen, develop, or simply explore our youth group community and a relationship with our loving God. Our theme “Out of Ashes” will invite each person to experience God’s healing in the past, peace in the present, and hope for the future, knowing that by His grace we can “rise up” in all things and be transformed. This will be a time to step away from the usual day-to-day routine, and enter into prayer and fellowship with other teens in our community.
High School Steubenville Conference
The Steubenville Summer Conference is a weekend-long experience for high school teens (grades 9-12) that integrates dynamic speakers, incredible music, fellowship with other teens, and many opportunities to witness God’s love through the sacraments, adoration, and small groups. Across the United States, 50,000 teens will travel to 24 different conference locations and will be united under this year’s conference theme: “Restored.”
If you’ve practiced your faith your entire life, this trip is for you. If you’re familiar with who God is, but still aren’t sure how He fits into your life, this trip is for you. If you’ve never set foot in a church before, this trip is for you. If you’re a human being seeking answers, purpose, and peace, this trip is for you. All are invited, all are welcome.
