Life Teen is place where teenagers have fun learning about their faith and uncover the richness of all that is awesome about the Catholic Church. It’s a place where they are proud to bring their friends.
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.

Who can Come to Life Teen?
Life Teen is the name of the 9th grade program through which our young people receive their second year of Confirmation. It is mainly for 9th graders but others who are not confirmed may come as well! Once a young person has been confirmed, they can join our Relentless program. Click here for more details!
How Does My Teen Continue with their Confirmation Program?
We offer many options for teens who want to get confirmed. It’s vital that they learn as much as they can about the Catholic faith in order to practice their faith fully as an adult. We offer a few options for them to learn their faith. They can choose from the following: Church Study, Home Study, and Catholic School. For those who choose Church Study, we typically focus on confirmation instruction in 8th and 9th grade and the teen receives the sacrament of Confirmation early on in 10th grade. Those who choose Home Study will order the materials, do the work at home and receive help from their parents. Our Catholic School students will receive their instruction at school and focus on the specific Confirmation portion with us on Retreat or a one-day event held at the church for Catholic School kids only. All of our students are required to attend one of our retreats during the year.
Who Runs Life Teen?
Life Teen at Saint Joseph is run by Jennifer Marks and a team of Core Members who are devoted and loyal to the Church and her teachings. All Core Members have had background checks and have been to the Virtus training for volunteers.
Christ taught that what we do to the least of our brothers and sisters, we do for Him. We know that life gets busy but it is so important to take time out to serve those who need a helping hand. Sometimes all we can do is give a donation or buy something. However, we try through EDGE to provide hands-on activities for youth to serve. Calvary Children's Home is truly "home" to youth who find themselves without a place to go. They are a Christian, non-government based home that seeks to offer a place for children to stay with siblings until, if possible, they can return to their own home. We have done a variety of service activities from washing cars, helping with yard work, cleaning out closets, setting up for yard sales, and more. From there, we have time to be with the youth who live there. Please consider signing up to help!
We have just completed all of our service projects until the Fish Fry that takes place Friday nights during Lent. If you would like to sign up to help serve dinner, please email Kristi at [email protected] More will be posted here soon!
