High School Youth Group 

The Mary, Mother of God High School Youth Group provides a community where our high school teens can become active members of our Parish and enrich their own spiritual lives and our larger community. The group provides an environment where the teens can feel accepted and comfortable, to be themselves, as they share in fellowship, service and socials.

The group has its own Youth Center where they meet every Sunday night from 7:00pm to 9:00pm (September through June). Teen Mass- (check bulletins since Mass dates change periodically) of each month, the meeting is preceded by a teen Mass at 6:00 pm in the teen center. The teen center (TC) is located in the Parish Center, under the gym.

Through the year the group participates in many activities including: weekend retreats, 30-hour famine, visits to nursing homes, plant sales for Easter and Christmas, swim parties, Great Adventure, and other excursions and much more.
