Steubenville NYC 2018 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 24 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.

We will be heading there again this July!!







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.
