All sign up genius signups are open now!
 

March for Life - January 18: We have a limited number of tickets to the Youth Rally and Mass for Life in Washington D.C. which precedes the March for Life. Held at the Verizon Center, the rally is attended by 15,000+ young people who come together to pray for life, listen to speakers, and hear inspiring praise and worship music! The rally culminates with Mass which is concelebrated by bishops and  priests. We realize that there are exams at NCHS - if you don't have an exam on the 18th or can consider taking your exam early, we urge you to see if this experience is where God is calling you! We will be going down by bus late Thursday night so that we can be in D.C. at the rally in the morning. Cost per student is $75. Contact Chris Otis at youth@starcc.com to secure a spot. Scholarships available. Adult VIRTUS trained chaperones are also needed. 

St. A's Buddies Needed for Night to Shine - February 8th:
High school teens from St. A's are needed as buddies for the annual Tim Tebow Night to Shine . . . a very special prom night for our friends with special needs! We need to get our teens signed up now, as all volunteers need to attend a short buddy training on Saturday, Jan 19 or 26 from 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. To sign up, go to

WANT TO UNDERSTAND GOD'S WORD AS A TEEN? Have you ever thought? Mass is boring; I have no idea what Father is talking about; the readings at Mass have nothing to do with my life.  ANY GIVEN SUNDAY is a website developed to help you better prepare for Mass. The weekly reflections are written by some of the best known Catholic youth speakers, musicians and comedians in the country. The reflections are relevant, understandable, personal and geared toward 13-18 year-old students. They are written for you!

TEEN DINNER & ADORATION: 

Next Date: Wednesday, January 23rd
Sign up here

Teen Adoration is held once a month usually on a Wednesday evening. Our Adoration evenings begin with dinner in the Youth Room at 7pm, followed by a Holy Hour, that features contemporary praise and worship music, 
teen-friendly reflections and quiet time with our Lord. The Sacrament of Confession is also offered for our teens.


TEEN ROSARY: 
Next Date: Coming Soon!

Since NCHS has midterms, we will open up the Tudor House as study space from 6-10 pm and at 8pm will take a study break for a 20 minute Rosary, followed by a snack break.  Come study in our space or if you are at the library, take a break and come over at 8pm for 30 minutes.  No matter how busy we are, we must make time for prayer each and every day -- come pray in community!


For information about any youth program or opportunity, please contact Chris Otis at 203-652-1154 or youth@starcc.com to get involved!
