FISH (Fellowship in Spirit with Him)

This year during FISH, there will be two different ways for our youth to learn and grow in their faith:

  1. Alpha Youth: Each session the students will be invited to share in the opportunity to grow in their faith and become better acquainted with the Gospels as we follow the Alpha Youth series; included each week is the chance to share a meal together and discuss issues about our faith. The Alpha Youth series mirrors the Alpha series being offered to adults in our parish.  For more information, visit Alpha Youth Series.
  2. Lifeteen: Each session the students will have the opportunity to learn about an aspect of their Catholic faith through games, small group discussion, and prayer. Life nights will have catechetical, issue or social themes.

Each month students will also be invited to take part in service opportunities, social events, and other faith-building events outside of Wednesday nights.
