Youth Group meets every two weeks from 6:00pm – 7:30pm in the School Auditorium.  We try to foster an encounter with Jesus Christ that forms a foundation and identity for the future as well as build friendships through fun and small group time.  We have four different themes.  Fun nights are primarily to goof off and build community.  Faith nights are times to dive into serious subjects.  Prayer nights focus on actual prayer time.  Breakout nights focus on the Theology of the Body and have separate guy/girl talks and small groups.

Who: those currently in 6th – 12th grade

Adult Bible Study (2022/23) 

The Book of Acts:  How the Holy Spirit leads the Church through Hard Times.  Drs. Michael Barber, John Bergsma, and John Kincaid.  Includes an overview of the Book of Acts; Ascension and Pentecost; Peter, Paul and the first Church Council; the origin of Paul’s mission and Gospel; evangelization in Athens; martyrdom and tribulation.  This is a seven-week study on Wednesdays, 6-7:30pm in the PLC, September 7 – 19, 2022. No Cost.

Lectio: Peter.  Dr. Tim Gray.  The character of St. Peter is both inspiring and confounding to many of us. How could a stubborn and impulsive fisherman become the “rock” upon which Jesus would build his Church? Bringing together biblical accounts, historical evidence, Church teaching, classical art, and personal insights, Dr. Tim Gray gives a fresh perspective on Simon Peter that is immediately informative and relevant to our lives. After all, if Jesus could bring out the very best in someone like Peter, then there is hope for the rest of us.  This is a ten-week study on Wednesdays 6-7:30pm in the PLC, October 26, 2022 – February 15, 2023.  No classes during weeks of Thanksgiving, Advent and New Year’s.  Workbook cost $20.

Denver Catholic Catechetical  School

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC), published in 1994, was the first universal Catechism intended for the whole Catholic Church in over 400 years!

That Man is You!

TMIY is an interactive, multimedia men’s program focused upon the development of authentic male leadership. The program content harmonizes current social and medical science with the teachings of the Church and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of man fully alive. Over the course of three years, That Man is You! successively considers men in their relationship to God, to their spouse and to their children. It is particularly indebted to the teachings of the Second Vatican Council and Pope John Paul II. For more info, call John Vonau at the Parish Office.
