Saint William Catholic Church High School Youth Ministry

High school youth ministry seeks to provide a continual encounter with Christ through catechesis, sacramental preparation, community, service, and other opportunities at the parish and beyond. Youth ministry provides peer to peer and adult to peer discipleship. Relationships with peers and adults who are actively practicing their faith provide a solid foundation for our teens to grow and thrive. To learn more about youth ministry see the link and information below.



High School Youth Nights

Youth Nights provide the opportunity for teens to come together, enjoy community, develop friendships, seek support for their growing faith, explore the faith, engage in activites that are fun--and sometimes silly, and meet other Catholic teens who may not go to their school. Youth Nights seek to meet the teens where they are and walk with them on their spiritual journey. High School Youth Nights are on Sunday Evenings that are non-confirmation class Sunday. See the schedule link below for the 2022-2023 Youth Night calendar. Youth Nights begin at 6:00pm in the Youth Room of the Blessed Mother Parish Center and end at 7:30pm. All teens in grade 9-12 are welcome and encouraged to attend and participate in youth nights. This includes students who are in confirmation preparation, students who have been confirmed, and high school students who are not in confirmation preparation and have not been confirmed--included friends!

Confirmation Information

Within the diocese of Venice, the sacrament of confirmation is conferred after a minimum of two years of continual preparation through the parish. For a teen, preparation can begin Freshman year (grade 9). Along with confirmation classes, teens are also required to participate in Youth Nights (Sunday Evenings at the parish) while in sacramental preparation for confirmation.
