But if you STILL think this is something you want to know more about, check out the information below.

MIDDLE SCHOOL YOUTH MINISTRY (6th through 8th Grades):


Fall Fest: This is a great tradition that happens every year! We meet for pizza and then head to Heidi’s Farmstand for the corn maze. Check out our PAGE for more information!

Sky Zone trips: These happen 2x or more a year. All students are welcome to join us for a 1.5 hour jump time at Sky Zone (3640 29th St). Basically it is a giant facility full of trampolines. For more information you can check out their website Skyzone
All students must have an updated Sky Zone waiver. It can be found on their website.

Shine Rally: The diocesan-wide Shine Rally has been around since 1996. Deacon Ken Baldwin had a desire to create an event that appealed to middle school students and drew their attention to Jesus. It is an awesome day of speakers, music, games, skits, food, and faith. This year’s keynote speak is Bob Rice and the house band is the Thirsting. The Shine Rally will be held on Saturday, March 25 from 1:30-8:30PM at West Catholic HS. Contact Sue for more details, and check out Shine Rally FB Page and the Shine Rally website.
Shine Rally date: March 24

Movie Retreats: These are a great way to get deeper in your faith but have a great time doing it. We watch 2-3 movies based on the retreat theme and then have brief discussions following. We play games, hang out and eat snacks. It is a very laid back retreat. This is open to all 6th through 8th grade students. Register here!
Movie Retreat Date: October 23

Antioch Retreats: These are held once a year. These retreats are perfect for the first time retreat go-er to the retreat veterans. They are filled with lots of different activities from talks to games to skits. They are incredibly fun and as Sue has said numerous times “I am terrible at describing this great weekend without making it sound incredibly lame.” Contact Sue for more details or find out more HERE!
