Youth Council
The Youth Council is the teen-led teen planning board.  It meets on the first Wednesday of every month from 7:00-9:00 PM in the Parish Center.  This council serves the same function as the Parish Council, but for youth concerns and activities.

Youth Group
The Youth Group puts into action the activities planned by the Youth Council.  All teens are welcome.  Typical activities are: car washes, pumpkin carving, Thanksgiving activities, Pot-Luck dinners, soup kitchens and many similar activities.  Youth Mass is celebrated once a month as the 11:30AM Sunday liturgy.  This is a chance for teens to minister to the parish as lectors, Eucharistic ministers, greeters and Gift Bearers.  The music is more contemporary and geared towards teens.  Here is the calendar for 2014-2015 and the Youth Mass schedule

Encounter the Gospel of Life
In July each year, 32 of our parish teens, along with Sal Caraviello, our Director of Ministries, and other chaperones will be participating in this one week service retreat in Washington, DC.  It’s an awesome experience wherein our teens minister to people with many disadvantages: the homeless, refugee children, mentally impaired and immigrants.  They work during the day and meet for spiritual and social activities in the evening while staying at local college dormitories. The young people hold bake sales, car washes and trash pickup service to pay for their expenses.

Cor Unum Meal Center
The Cor Unum (One Heart) Meal Center very powerfully responds to the urgent need to feed the hungry in Lawrence, MA, lovingly welcoming all people, providing nourishment for the bodies and souls of all who are in need.  Our young people serve at Cor Unum at various times during the year.
