Spring Retreat 2018 (Chaos) was a super weekend for our teens!
We held the retreat at Lourdes in Litchfield. This overnight event was attended by 17 teens. We had an awesome time!

Steubenville East 2017 was AMAZING!!
On the weekend of July 15 our teens will be headed up to St. John University in New York City for the annual Steubenville NYC High School Catholic Youth Conference. We brought 20 people from St. John's to join the over 2000 teens in attendance.
Sponsored by Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, this was a life changing weekend for all. The teens experienced incredible music, inspiring speakers, and a chance to see what being a Catholic teen is really all about.
Baked Stuffed Shrimp Dinner Raises Funds for Programs
On February 20th, Life Teen sponsored our 3rd Annual Baked Stuffed Shrimp Dinner. 210 meals were served. Funds raised will be used for Life Nights, Band Needs, and the Steubenville Trip this summer.
Bake Sale to Support the St. Vincent dePaul Mission of Waterbury a Success.
Our Teens and Core members spent hours baking and preparing treats to sell on the weekend masses prior to Christmas. Through the sale, our teens raised over $600. The Soup Kitchen will use the money to purchase food to feed the hungry of Waterbury. Thanks to all who supported.
