What is Life Teen?
Life Teen is a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church that leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness and power present within the young Church.
Led by a core team of peers and adult parishioners, Life Teen aims to foster, grow and nurture a relationship with Jesus. Through weekly get-togethers, service projects, evenings of Eucharistic Adoration, and faith filled discussions, teens in grades 9 through 12, develop a better understanding of the Church, its teachings and Christ’s unending love.
There are many ways to participate in the St. Francis Xavier Life Teen program. Attend a weekly Life Night, socialize on Teen Wednesday, or attend a retreat! Join us for all of our activities or just those that work best with your schedule.
Life Nights – Every Sunday evening (during the school year), after 5:30 p.m. Mass – Xavier Room. Join us for food, prayer, discussion and a celebration of Jesus and the Church.
Teen Tuesdays – Every Wednesday from 6 to 8:30 p.m. – Randel House. All are welcome to gather for a social evening of friends, games, music, laughter, conversation, and food!
Retreats – See calendar for dates and times. Held twice a year at St. Leonard’s Retreat Center in Avon, a Life Teen Retreat weekend is an opportunity to encounter God and experience spiritual renewal. Music, fun, games, faith sharing, prayer and GREAT FOOD included! We also have retreats for Confirmation held at other camps, Damascus and Franciscan University.
