Sacred Heart Parish Youth Program is available to students attending 7th through 12th grades. A major emphasis of the program is becoming involved in the mass, service to the parish and service to the larger community. Activities the youth are involved with include retreats, social activities and community service projects.

Please welcome our Youth Minister Abby Jones to Sacred Heart Parish.

Her hobbies include running, water skiing, crafting, reading, and traveling. She worked at Walt Disney World as an intern and traveled to 8 countries in Europe. She is here to bring her passion for faith to life!  Abby grew up Catholic and has always been involved in her church, going to retreats, bible studies and in college, she led Bible studies and retreats. Abby is excited about helping the students and families come together for some fun and faith-filled events like sporting events, volunteer opportunities, movies, bible studies, retreats, and hopefully, pilgrimages in the future. If you see her around make sure to say hi, she is excited to meet everyone!

WORLD YOUTH DAY LISBON 2023

WHAT IS WORLD YOUTH DAY? 

World Youth Day (WYD) is a worldwide encounter with the Pope celebrated about every three years in a different country. WYD is open to all young people (ages 16-35) who want to take part in a festive encounter centered on Jesus Christ together with their peers. This event is an opportunity to personally experience the universality of the Catholic Church, and to share with the whole world the hope of many young people who are committing their lives to Christ and His Church. World Youth Day is a unique way to deepen your faith and grow closer to Christ, through prayer and the sacraments, together with hundreds of thousands of other young people who share your interests and ambitions.
