The High School Youth Ministry of Guardian Angels seeks to welcome teens in grades 9th-12th. All youth are welcomed into a Christ-centered community where everyone will grow together in faith through spiritual, social, and service opportunities. We are dedicated to bringing all youth into the loving heart of the Father through Jesus and the mission he entrusted to the Church. We will do this by supporting each individual through their unique talents so they are able to live out and defend their Catholic faith in their everyday life.
All high school teens, whether they are preparing for Confirmation or have already been Confirmed, are welcome. This group will help create a community where all high school teens can continue developing a relationship with Christ together led by their fellow peers. Below you will see some of the ministry opportunities high school students can participate in.

Sacrament of Confirmation
Confirmation preparation is a two-year process within the high school years. This two-year formation process is based on the principles set forth in the National Conference of Catholic Bishops’ document Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry and follows the Prophets of Hope Model. Our Confirmation process is not only preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation, but also focuses on the importance of teens becoming active members of their Catholic Church Community.
The year consists of weekly class, active involvement in the youth group and parish community, service projects, participation in retreats, and a desire to grow in the understanding of one’s own faith. Especially weekly participation at Sunday Mass, preferably the 10:00am Mass.
Do not grow slack in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, preserver in prayer.Romans 12:11-12
