This year we have a lot of fun and enriching evenings and weekends planned If you have a desire to go deeper with your faith or just want to connect with other teens, come and check out our teen nights and drop-ins!

We ended the year with caroling for the residents of Porter Place and Fulton Commons. Though our group was small they definitely brought smiles to the faces of those who were there! The Christmas season is a time to bring cheer and merriment to others, to help each other with our burdens and to look forward in hope. Caroling has always been one of my favorite ways to do this. It brings Christmas cheer to those who may not get many visitors or who may be feeling down at this time of year and it gives them hope. I pray that all of you had a blessed Christmas and your New year is full of hope and joy!--Holly

St. George & Branches Youth Ministry Mission Trip
2017
Harlan, Kentucky








St. Stephen, St. Elizabeth Seton and St. George parishes partnered with COAP (Christian Outreach to Appalachian People). “COAP was conceived in 1977 as a grass roots inter-denominational relief effort in response to a devastating flood, which caused great destruction of homes in Harlan County. In 1980, a Mennonite volunteer, Marlin Yoder, helped to form Christian Family Housing Services to help actualize the dream of helping low-income families with their housing needs.”

The parishes drove to Harlan, KY. They stayed at a camp provided by COAP, CAMP SLEEPYHOLLOW. They were responsible for cooking and cleaning up after themselves.

The group had sightseeing tours in the evenings, team-building activities, prayer and meditations, and travelled around the local area. They worked to improve life in a small area of the Appalachian Mountains by roofing a home.

What a great inspiration our teens are to our Catholic faith!
