ST. JOE’S HIGH SCHOOL TEEN GROUP

Upcoming Events

Updated February 18, 2019


We have been working on a High School Teen Group schedule and hope you can join us for some - or all - of these events! Dates and times are subject to change, especially during the winter months when inclement weather comes into play. We may add or subtract some events as well, so stay posted! Please feel free to share this calendar with your friends and families, including those outside of our parish family! The High School Teen Group is open to all students in grades 9 through 12 - not just St. Joe’s Parishioners or St. Mike’s alumni! As always - we will gladly sign off on service hours for any event which qualifies! We offer great opportunities to serve your community while having fun with your friends! If you have any questions, feel free to email us
