High School Youth Ministry

COVID-19 Ministry Update June 25, 2020

 

Dear Families,

 

I pray this message finds you well. Our High School Youth Ministry will begin offering programing in person beginning Sunday, June 28. Our weekly schedule is below:

 

  • Sundays from 6:00pm – 8:30pm for Movies & Morality (in person only)
  • Wednesdays from 7:00pm – 8:00pm for Bible Study (via Zoom)
  • Thursdays from 7:00pm – 8:00pm for Book Study (via Zoom)

 

In light of COVID-19 the Diocese has provided guidelines and a waiver that each participant will need to complete in order to participate in person. For the foreseeable future, when we gather in person, we will follow CDC, DHEC, diocesan, and parish guidelines for gatherings. These guidelines listed below include, but are not limited to:

 

  • Everyone is expected to wear a mask. If a student or adult arrives without a mask one will be provided and they are expected to wear it.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be readily available.
  • Six-foot social distancing will be enforced throughout the gathering (including all parish grounds before/after the program). The only exception will be for students living in the same residence.
  • Food will not be shared. For Movies & Morality, students should bring any dinner/snacks they might desire for themselves only.
  • Non-contact Temperature checks will be conducted before students/adults enter the building. Anyone who registers a temperature of 100.4 or above will not be allowed to participate.
  • Students/adults will enter/exit through the cafeteria doors for the above programs. As you face the front of the Parish Life Center, please go to the left side of the building to access the cafeteria.
  • Any updates from diocesan or healthcare officials that effectively change the current guidelines will be communicated to our families and students. Please make sure you provide us with an updated email address.

 

In addition to the procedural guidelines above there is a waiver that parents must complete in order for their student(s) to participate in person (one waiver is good for the entire summer). Anyone who does not have a signed waiver will not be allowed to participate in person until the waiver is completed and submitted.

 

While these procedures and waiver are not how we envisioned our summer to go, the safety of our community is paramount while balancing the need for socialization. If you have any questions/concerns, please do not hesitate to call or email me.

 All students in grades 9-12 are invited and encouraged to attend. Friends (high school aged) are always welcome at any of our Youth Ministry gatherings regardless of their faith background. Parents are also welcome to join us to see all that we do during our meetings. 

 

Our High School Ministry is more than our Sunday night meetings. We offer and participate in a variety of programming at local, diocesan, and national levels. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We hope to see you soon!

 

We gather to foster Missionary Discipleship by connecting people to Jesus Christ and one another through our Catholic Faith Community.  

Programs & Events

Movies & Morality

 

Starting Sunday, June 28th Movies & Morality is back! Each Sunday we gather to watch a popular movie (rated PG-13 or less) and discuss the moral situations within that movie, how the characters responded, and how that aligns- or doesn't with our faith. It's a great time of community, good movies, some ridiculousness, and faith discussion. All rising 9th grade students through graduated seniors are invited! 

 

We begin at 6:00pm (or after the 5:00pm mass - whichever is later)

 

Bible Study

Join us on Wednesdays at 7 pm as we read and reflect on the 1st and 2nd letters to Timothy. These are great opportunities to dive into scripture, learn more about Timothy - a young Bishop in Ephesus - and see how he overcomes his struggles as a young Christian. See you Wednesday via Zoom
 
 
 

Summer Book Study

 

Thursday Book Study

We couldn't leave out our summer book study! Join us on Thursdays at 7 pm as we read, reflect, and discuss The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis!  You've still got time to join us!
 
 
 

Fall Kickoff

We've been apart for far too long. Sunday, September 13th we kickoff our fall semester with Sunday Youth Nights. Things will be different, we all look different in masks, there will be less (no) pizza, but our faith, our community, and our commitment to discipleship - while sharing laughs - remains! All high school students are invited, welcome, and encouraged to attend! If you have questions or concerns - please don't hesitate to call or email me! We're looking forward to gathering - safely, socially distant, but in person - again and we hope you'll be there with us!
