What is Life Teen?

St. Francis Xavier Life Teen is a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church. St. Francis Xavier Life Teen’s goal is to lead teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, St. Francis Xavier Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within the young Church.

We achieve this mission through weekly Life Nights, a fall retreat led by the Core Team, a peer-led Spring Retreat, service opportunities, XLTs, as well as weekly Teen Tuesdays, which are social nights, and Theology Thursdays, where the teens can dig deeper into certain topics such as Apologetics, Heaven and Hell, Spiritual Warfare and other questions they have about their Catholic faith during the school year.

What is a Life Night?

Life Nights are teaching moments that bring to life our Catholic Faith and relevant issues for teens.

There are 4 basic types of Life Nights:

    • Catechetical
    • Issue
    • Social
    • XLT

We present Life Nights directly after 5:30 p.m. Sunday Mass during the school year.

Our program is led by Dawn Cavanaugh, who is assisted by a number of adult volunteers with a heart for leading teens to Christ. For more information, please contact Dawn at dcavanaugh@sfxmedina.org
