SJC College Connection
Whether they are on campus this fall or virtually taking classes at home during Covid, we want to remind SJC college-aged teens of God’s love and His plan for them. Now more than ever, our college-aged teens need support, encouragement and prayers. If you wish to to have your college-aged teen matched with an SJC parishioner pen pal to receive notes of support this school year, or if you are a parishioner wishing to be paired with our SJC college teens, CLICK HERE to sign up.
Due to Covid-19, Kairos Retreats are cancelled for the 2020-2021 year. While this is disappointing, we hope to be able to bring some great day retreats this year to maintain fellowship and nurture ourselves spiritually within grade level groups. Stay tuned!
Similarly, the Church League Basketball Season has been cancelled for the 2020-2021 school year. We are disappointed that we cannot continue this long tradition of fellowship and competition for our teens and will look to next year to hopefully bring it back again.
Our Youth Ministry Program encourages our young adults to grow in Leadership, Fellowship, Spirituality and Service to others. All SJC Teens are welcome to any and all events, including Sunday Fall Nights, Small Home Groups, Service Opportunities, ALPHA Teen Faith Formation and so much more. Through our many small and large group activities, they can enjoy Fellowship with their peers, while growing in their faith. We hope to keep our young adults connected to each other and their SJC Parish so they can discover their Spiritual Gifts and find ways to use them for the good of their parish and community.
