Teens, are you looking for something more in your relationship with God, but aren’t sure what that looks like? Join us for a retreat experience that can help your relationship with the Lord come alive in a new way!! Consider growing in your relationship with God and other teens from St. Dennis (and surrounding parishes) by attending a Teen Life in the Spirit Retreat.  The retreat will consist of inspiring talks, music, prayer, sharing, and prayer for the Baptism in the Holy Spirit by Fr. Jim Curtin and the Life in the Spirit Retreat Team.  We will begin on Saturday October 22nd with our 4:30pm parish mass and then have dinner, worship music, and opening talks in the Stalzer Rm until 8:30pm.  We will continue on Sunday from 9:00am-3:00pm in Fracaro Hall.  Please contact Elizabeth Enarson, Youth Minister at 815-838-2592 x116 to register for the above event by October 13th.


Once a month on a Saturday and/or Sunday our Peer Ministry Leadership Team will be meeting to plan for upcoming youth ministry events.  The Peer Ministry Leadership Team is made up of high school teens that are interested in taking on a leadership role at our parish.  They will help lead various aspects of our monthly teen masses, and will be involved in planning and facilitating youth ministry social events and service projects.  If you are a high school teen that would like to find out more about the youth ministry program, please contact Elizabeth Enarson at 815-838-2592 x116 or eenarson@saint-dennis.org for further information.
