SMASH Prayer
Minimize

Thank you, Lord. Thank you for blessing us with a community of believers that worships and prays together.

Help us, Lord. Help us lead lives we can take pride in despite all of today’s pressures.

Remind us, Lord. Remind us that when we are lost and lonely, you are always near.

Forgive us, Lord. Forgive us for we are far from perfect and grant us hearts that are open to forgiving others.

Give us strength, Lord. Give us strength to hear your voice and follow your plan today and always.

Amen

Youth Ministry Philosophy
Minimize
The Student Ministry program at Sacred Heart strives to empower the teens of the parish to live as Disciples (followers) of Christ, to draw them into responsible participation in the social and spiritual life of the parish and to foster their personal and spiritual growth through a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith and their relationship with Jesus.

SMASH on Wednesdays: Students in grades 9-12 are invited to participate in weekly youth gatherings from 6:30-8:30 most Wednesdays during the school year. Participants have the opportunity to explore their faith and grow in their relationship with God through the use of music, media, prayer, games, stories, talking with peers and more. No registration necessary, come any time! 2014-15 SMASH will begin in Sept.

Service: Opportunities to serve others are offered throughout the year such as serving a meal at Catholic Worker House, Courage League Sports and Christmas shopping with underprivileged kids. Extended service trips are offered during spring break (FIA) and in the summer.  

Community Building: Many opportunities to build community are available through events such as Ice Skating, SMASH Socials, and Summer Beach Bash to name a few. 

Teen Choir: This energetic group leads upbeat music for Mass about once a month (usually 11:15). Rehearsals are two or three Sunday’s a month from 6:30-8:00 pm. Singers and instrumentalists welcome. Teen choir takes the summer off and will resume in September 2014.
