Youth & Young Adult Ministries

Welcome to St. Helen's Youth & Young Adult Ministry page! We're glad you are here!

GENESIS is open to all students in grades 6-8.  Through dynamic catechesis and small group mentoring, we lead our teens into a deeper relationship with Christ and His Church.  GENESIS is also Eucharist-centered.  GENESIS is held currently Sunday evenings from 6:00-7:30 pm in the Teen Center. 

ACTS – As a parish, we use Life Teen resources. Life Teen is an international Catholic movement that serves the Church by providing resources and faith experiences that help lead teens closer to Christ. At our parish, the priests, Youth & Young Adult Coordinator, and CORE Team of adults, build an environment where teens feel loved, accepted, and compelled. Through the Mass and Monday Life Nights, high school teens learn more about their Catholic faith and grow to love the Sacraments, the Word, and the Liturgy. ACTS (our high school youth ministry program) is open to all students in grades 9-12. Life Nights are held Monday evenings from 6:00-7:30 pm in the Teen Center.

GEN2A  is for all young adults, ages 18-35.  GEN2A is for college students, young Catholic professionals, singles, and married couples.  GEN2A usually meets on Mondays from 8:00-9:30 pm in the Teen Center.  Check out our online calendar here  to see what other events we have planned! GEN2A strives to keep young adults connected to their Catholic faith.
