Youth Ministry

"Let no one have contempt for your youth, but set an example for those who believe,
in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity."  1 Timothy 4:12


Dear Sacred Heart Families,


Thank you for your warm welcome and your patience as we worked to get the 2019-2020 registration materials together. Registration for the SOURCE High School and Confirmation Programs is now open. This year, our prayer is that we will all work together to build a strong and faith filled program that will help to lead the Sacred Heart teens closer to Christ.


You can click here for the Student Registration Form, Initial Calendar, and Permission Form. They are also available at the Parish Center and in the Church Gathering Space. Please print, complete and return the forms to the Office of Youth Ministry with payment or deposit as soon as possible. Fee assistance is available.


All Sacred Heart High School parents and students should plan to attend one of the Orientation Meetings to learn more about SOURCE, the curriculum that will be used, our Confirmation Program, our Youth Ministry Calendar, and/or to inquire about any other aspect of Youth Ministry. There will be two opportunities to attend our Parent/Student Orientation meetings on September 8th or September 15th. We will all attend the 5:00 PM Youth Mass, then meet in the Library/Media Center of the school from 6:15 — 8:00 PM. You may also call the Youth Ministry Office, send an email or just stop by to talk if you would like.


SOURCE is offered for all High School students (grades 9-12) and will meet 2 times a month on Sunday evenings following the 5:00 PM Youth Mass from 6:15 — 8:30 PM. Our goal is that SOURCE will be the community of faith for all High School students. It meets the 2-year catechesis requirement for those seeking Confirmation, and it is the continuing faith formation for all High School students. We will using the Life Teen® program for SOURCE.


Confirmation classes will meet once a month on a separate Sunday night following the 5:00 PM Youth Mass from 6:15 — 8:00 PM. Most sessions will be for the students only, but there will also be Parent/Student sessions and a Sponsor/Student Retreat. More details on the Confirmation program will be provided at the Orientation Meetings and in the Confirmation Packet that will be provided separately to those who register for Confirmation.


Finally, Parents and Teens we need your help:

  • Please assist us in developing programs which address your needs and expectations by completing the Parent and Youth Surveys.


  • We also need leaders and other volunteers. Is God calling you to come share your time, faith, talent, and your hospitality with the young church? Is God calling you to be a Youth Ministry Leader in our SOURCE and Confirmation sessions, Peer Leader, Small Group Leader, Hospitality Minister, Chaperone, Driver, Prayer Partner, or in some other way? We have many ways that you can help in Youth Ministry and I hope that you all will prayerfully consider how God might be calling you.


Please let us know how we can better serve you and your teen. Hopefully, we will see you and your family at the 5pm Youth Mass on Sunday nights! If you are interested in helping with Youth Ministry, you can click here for an Adult Interest and Involvement Survey and a Peer Leader Application. If you have any questions, thoughts or concerns please feel free to contact me! May God bless you and your family.



With Peace and Love,


Susan Lea
