Want to grow in your relationship with God?
Want to go deeper in your Catholic faith?
Ever feel overwhelmed by the large group at LifeNights?
Feel called to be a leader at LifeTeen?
Then Mark 8 is for YOU!
That's our motto: engage, disciple, lead. It is the structure of our lively Mark 8 Student Leadership Team.
Sometimes, teens who have already been Confirmed or have gone on a retreat need a smaller and focused environment to meet them where they're at in their faith journey. It's fun and different from regular LifeNight... Mark 8 meetings happen every other Wednesday night in the Youth Ministry Office during the school year. Not only are these meetings focused, but personal. It's a relaxing and inviting setting to unwind after a day of school and gather with friends as we dive deeper into our faith. Whether our night is focused on faith issues, the upcoming Sunday Mass readings, personal sharing, or Praise & Worship... it's the the ideal type of spiritual formation for mature and commited teens.
Mark 8 is a group of committed leaders who come to Sunday LifeNights at least twice a month. Teens on Mark 8 spread out on LifeNights and help our leaders among small groups at nights and on retreats. Teens also help in the function of Sunday Night Youth Ministry, such as helping lead a prayer service, giving a witness, helping with set-up or clean-up, putting on the Lenten Living Stations Prayer Experience for the entire parish, and planning our Core/Kitchen Appreciation.
