The youth ministry program is called The 45 & Life Teen. The 45 is for 4th and 5th graders. Through Life Teen we host two separate events for High Schoolers (Life Night) and Middle Schoolers (EDGE) that are outlined below in the drop down menus:

 

The45 (4th-5th grade)

The45 – 4th to 5th grades

The45 is our Ongoing Faith Formation program for all 4th and 5th grade students. They meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm.

The45 provides a supportive environment where kids can have fun with their peers while they are learning about God, developing good habits for life, and growing in their relationship with Christ.  Our program includes a presentation of Bible stories, solid Catholic teaching, inspiring learning activities and conversations, music and a message that is designed to reinforce faith-based habits and lead students into deeper relationships with Christ.

All 4th and 5th graders are welcome to attend The45, and we will never turn away a family, but in order to support the work of our ministry we are asking families to make a suggested donation of $30.00. This helps cover the cost of our materials and ensures we can provide the best program possible.

For more information on payments, please contact Mr. Marx Pilapil at mpilapil@sbdiocese.org or by phone at 951-698-8180 x244.

For more information about registration, attendance and sacramental certificates, please contact Ms. Cynthia Calderon at ccalderon@sbdiocese.org or by phone at 951-698-8180 x242.

EDGE (Middle School Ministry)

Edge is our Middle School Youth Group and there are a lot of ways your students can get involved.

EDGE is our formation ministry for 6th‐8th grade students and meets most Sundays from 6:30-8:30pm.  Each week, the middle school teens will hear a message specifically designed for them, they will worship, play games and take part in small groups.  We believe that students who grow in faith in relationship with other believers become healthy, faithful adults, so our small groups are led by loving adults who will challenge the teens to go deeper into the scripture and teachings of the Church.  For more information on volunteering and becoming part of the core team, please contact Vinny Kyamko-Yap at vkyamko@sbdiocese.org

All children in Jr. High are welcome to attend EDGE, and we will never turn away a family, but in order to support the work of our ministry we are asking families to make a suggested donation of $50.

For more information on payments, please contact Mr. Marx Pilapil at mpilapil@sbdiocese.org or by phone at 951-698-8180 x244.

Life Night (High School Ministry)

Life Night is our High School Youth Group and there are a lot of ways your students can get involved.

Life Night (Sundays 6:30-8:30 pm).  Each week at Life Night students hear a dynamic message, have the opportunity to ask questions, participate in powerful times of worship, led by our student worship ministry, grow in community through games, small groups and a weekly meal.  Life Night invites high school teens to move from being followers of the crowd to being leaders in faith.  All high school age teens are welcome.  Life Night is led by a passionate group of adults called the CORE team.  For more information on volunteering to be a part of the CORE, contact Vinny Kyamko-Yap at vkyamko@sbdiocese.org
