Our high school youth group R.O.C.K. (Rely On Christ the King) is open to teens in grades 9-12. Meetings are held every Sunday night from 6:30pm-8:30pm in the youth center. These meetings offer high school teens a fun time to relax with friends, wrestle with inner struggles, explore faith development, develop spiritual strength for daily living, and deepen their relationship with God.

In addition to ROCK activities the teens are able to serve as Lectors, Eucharistic ministers, Ushers, Hospitality Ministers, and more church related activities. A few programs the teens participate in are the Family Faith Sharing Program, Vacation Bible Camp, and various christian service projects.

We offer a weekend Fall Retreat, Halloween Party, living stations of the cross, an Emmaus walk in the Fall, and a summer high school youth conference at Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio.

Come to a meeting, see for yourself, and bring a friend! See our calendar below for all of our events throughout the year. For more information, call or email Julianne Umbarger.
