St. Joseph parish is a Life Teen parish. We meet every Sunday evening for 8th – 12th grade students after the 4:00 Mass. We begin with dinner in the Parish Meeting Center at 5:00 and then move into Life Night. We finish at 7:00pm.
Life Teen Conference 2019
Our parish will again be attending a Youth Conference this summer. Instead of attending at Franciscan Univ. of Steubenville in Ohio, we will be attending a Life Teen Conference at Saint John University in Queens, NY. The dates this summer will be July 19 -21, 2019. We will depart Friday morning after the celebration of Mass, and return Sunday evening. Any teenager who currently is of high school age, a freshman through senior year may attend. Graduating 8th graders may be eligible if room is available.

We are currently looking for help in the following areas:
- Prayer – The best and most effective way to help, is prayer. Please remember teens everywhere, especially those from our parish whom you may or may not know in your prayers.
- Core Team – A relational ministry for those a year or more out of high school. If you love God, have a heart for teens, and find yourself praying about them, God may be calling you to work with them. They will be the heart that keeps this ministry pumping.
- Kitchen Crew – We are looking to form three or four dinner teams who alternate each week to feed the teens and core. If you love to cook, clean, serve, organize, or just want to be part of the coolest parents at St Josephs, this could be for you. They’ll help behind the scenes, so don’t worry about invading your teen’s space.
If you’d like to help with any of the above or want to help, but don’t know where you best fit, contact our Youth Minister, Allen Austin, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
