LifeTeen is a successful, US-based faith formation programme which St Michaels has been running since 2015. With the aim of leading teenagers closer to Christ, the programme focusses on building real and supportive relationships with and among the teens and, as best as possible, meeting them ‘where they are at’.
The program is led by our full time Youth Coordinator and a core team of 10 to 15 young adults; it uniquely brings all our high school grades together for inspiring Life Nights every week after the Sunday 6pm mass. Each Life Night includes an element of fun, community, discussion, an inspiring teaching and time for personal prayer. The core team not only lead the Life Nights but walk a road with the teens as they journey to and with Christ.
We also take Grade 11’s on a journey to Confirmation at St Michaels, meeting once a week for a year, at a time chosen by the whole group. Confirmation takes place in the fourth quarter.
