St. Pat’s Youth Ministry
Welcome to St. Patrick’s Parish in Onalaska Youth Ministry Page. Our vision here at St. Pat’s is to integrate the youth into the greater community of the church. By offering life-changing retreats, engaging youth groups, and many other opportunities within the life of the church our goal is to open the door for the Holy Spirit to ignite the fire of God’s love within their souls so that faith becomes more than just coming to Mass on Sundays.
We are a proud member of the Life Teen Ministry program. Below is the Mission Statement and Ministry Opportunities that Life Teen brings to our parish.
As a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church, Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within the young Church.
Through powerful Eucharistic encounters and engaging catechesis, our Edge (middle school) and Life Teen (high school) teens are immersed in a dynamically Catholic parish culture. With the parish as their true home, our teens are then further strengthened by our Summer Camps, Events, Resources, and Digital (web and social media) evangelization. Our goal is not only to equip parishes worldwide with timely, high-quality resources to train Catechists and “reach” today’s teens but also to create an environment where Catholic teenagers feel supported and engaged the other 167 hours a week, outside of Sunday mass.
Take a look around the site at what we have to offer and join us in following Christ’s mission. Check out our calendar of events for the various ministries and retreats offered or just stop by sometime. We would love to meet you!
