OLGTeen Weekly Meetings
- Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. in the Religious Ed Building
- Sundays at 9:05 a.m. in the Parish Hall (between 8:00 and 10:30 Masses) At OLG Teen, we strive to invite young people into communion with the person of Jesus Christ. We accomplish this by empowering them through vibrant and applicable catechesis in addition to the ongoing nourishment of the Sacraments and scripture. By providing a Christian environment with sound fellowship, we allow for the flourishing of one’s spirituality and the blossoming of their identity in Christ.
