Jake Burmis, Youth Minister
High school students who have already been confirmed are warmly invited to be a part of many new & exciting opportunities! Our senior high youth group will continue to meet each Wednesday, starting in the gym at 7:30 & continuing until 9:30 p.m. Students may also attend a variety of youth outings such as: NET Ministry Lifeline nights on the first Saturday of each month, Steubenville (July 10-12), the mission trip (June 27-July 3) & other youth ministry events. Students who wish to continue with faith formation may attend Alpha or volunteer in a variety of different ways, all on Wednesday nights. Lastly, we are hoping to build Sunday nights as another opportunity for youth to come, have fun & grow in their faith. Please, see the Sign-Up to help build the 7:30 p.m. mass on those nights.
Senior High Youth Group
Please, come & join us on Wednesday nights from 7:30-9:30 (in youth room) for an incredibly special time of growth, both in faith & relationship with God & one another. Besides being a place where youth can come to relax (or do homework!) & truly be themselves, each youth group will consist of a lesson & discussion focused on the love of God that is found in Jesus Christ. After this time & prayer together, a variety of fun games will be played! All high school students are warmly welcome to attend & encouraged to bring friends! This group has the potential to easily become another sort of "family" for all & one of the most looked forward to times of the week. Come, give it a try!

Every summer, high school students have the opportunity to attend a Steubenville Youth Conference in Rochester, MN. This weekend-long conference gives students the opportunity to learn from knowledgeable speakers, worship with live music, attend daily mass, celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation, experience a powerful adoration time, and so much more.
Each summer, for one week, youth & adults from St. Anastasia partner with YouthWorks, a mission organization that “provides Christ-centered mission trips for more than 20,000 teenagers and adult leaders in over 45 communities across the U.S. and beyond.” These trips are incredibly life-changing.
