Youth in Action!

Welcome to fall of 2019! Youth in Action (YIA) has a great year planned and we look forward to all 7th and 8th graders joining us.

During our September 26th meeting we will have a speaker from Valley Youth House (VYH) who will tell us all about the work they do, and help us understand why their work is so important to our area. Parents are invited to this meeting too. After our speaker is done we will assemble bags of toiletries for the kids at VYH.

The rest of the year will be busy with more projects to help those in need. We will make meals for Aid for Friends and gifts for our parish shut-ins. We will collect soups for ‘Souper Bowl Sunday’, and give them to the parish food pantry. We will also collect school supplies for VYH, and package them up to take there. And that is just the beginning!

Our meetings occur on the fourth Monday evening of every month. We meet at the same time as PREP, 6:15-7:45 pm. Every meeting starts with prayer, scripture, and a short discussion. Then we play a game. After the game we devote our time to one of our projects as described above. The evening goes by very quickly because we are having so much fun!

Keep up with our schedule and activities by going to the parish website,, scroll down the options on the left and click on ‘Youth Programs’. We can also be found at the parish’s CYO website,

We look forward to seeing you! All 7th and 8th graders, from any school, are welcome. Come and bring your friends!
