What about the Book of Revelation?
Young Catholics have questions. Finding answers is an important part of developing a mature faith. Here at Holy Trinity, Youth Group is one way that young people can explore the Catholic religion – the institution, the traditions, the teachings, and the community. Anyone in grades 6 – 12 is welcome to join us on for our Sunday night youth group!
Youth Group? What’s that?
Youth Group is a gathering of teens that takes place once a week. Each week we have one topic or theme that we explore in three different groups – a 6th grade group, a 7th/8th grade group, and a high-school group.
That sounds boring.
It might sound that way, but don’t make up your mind until you see for yourself. Our youth ministry leadership has a philosophy: If you have fun, it’s fun for us. Which teen wants to go to “class” on Sunday night? None do! So we approach our faith through games, challenge activities, and music. This isn’t a class… it’s the young Church, growing in faith and understanding together.
So it’s just once a week?
Not always! Youth ministry also organizes activities and events throughout the year – concerts, retreats, and social trips. Sometimes we partner with other youth groups or even with the Archdiocesan Office for Youth Ministry to get the most bang out of our events – like the Catholic Pilgrimage Walk, a parade of 1,000 Catholic teenagers through downtown Portland. These events are posted in the bulletin (available on the H-T homepage) several weeks before they happen.
What does youth ministry cost?
The weekly youth group gathering is free, and open to anyone in middle-school or high-school. Special events sometimes have a registration fee, but there are scholarship opportunities for those that need them.
Do I need to register?
Yes, but you can register at the door.
What should I bring?
Bring an open mind and an open heart, and a friend if you want to! Don’t commit to a whole year of youth ministry – try just one night of youth group, or just one event. Then decide if it’s worth coming back for more.

Confirmation is a 6 week program beginning late January and is a separate part of our High School Youth Ministry program. This program is for registered parish families. Exceptions are on a case by case basis and require permission from the Pastor of residence and an out-of -parish fee of $100.
Confirmation Program Calendar: 2014 – coming soon!
