Every Wednesday from 6:30-8:30pm
Open to all high school teens, we come together every week to share our faith and foster a relationship with Christ and our peers. Our youth minister and adult leaders help our teens to trust, hope, rely and depend on God our Father in everything.
We do this through our weekly meetings, activities and hospitality. Our motto is, ALL ARE WELCOME. Come in and rest and find your place with us: a place of acceptance, love, caring and a non-judgmental environment!
We search for God in all parts of our lives: with our friends, in our schools, in our relationships, in our homes and in our church. We serve at Mass the last Sunday of the month; Teens lector, are Eucharistic Ministers and help serve. We give back to our community through our week-long service project, PROJECT PEOPLE. We take time to rest and build our relationship with God during our weekend retreats at Subiaco Retreat House. We also enjoy annual Cedar Point and Camping & Canoeing trips.
Come and find out what it is all about. We look forward to meeting you.
RISE Youth Conference – February 12, 2022
The Rainbow conference unites high school students for a variety of events and workshops that emphasize spiritual growth, leadership development, community service, and teen issues. The CYO Youth Council works throughout the year to plan, develop, and implement this teen conference for their high school peers. Rainbow is an annual two-day conference with three tracks (teen issues, life skills and spiritual growth) for over 1,500 9th through 12th grade students and their adult leaders.
What IS Project People, you ask? It is a week-long service project where St. Irenaeus Youth Group teens and adult volunteers serve the needy, the elderly, the disabled, and the poor in our community and surrounding area. Each day, a group of adults and teens are assigned to a worksite to clean, paint, make repairs, build ramps, replace drywall, weed, garden, and much more. The teams and locations change daily, so each day is a new experience with new friends. Our goal is to help not only someone’s material needs, but to form long-lasting friendships and share our faith with those we serve.
