There has never been a better time to be involved in our Church community!
Online Application Form (a Google Form)
Anyone is welcome to apply to be a Peer Minister – we are looking for teens from all grades to be Peer Ministers!
What Peer Ministers will likely do:
(depending on the interest of each Peer Minister and the group as a whole, we can see Peer Ministers possibly helping in these areas):
1. Life Night Leadership:
A. Help choose the topics for the Life Nights
B. Co-lead groups during Life Nights
C. Assist with Life Nights as MC’s, activity leaders (such as icebreakers), give witness talks, etc.
2. Help lead “works of mercy” experiences
A. Help us decide where to serve
B. Mentor younger teens while serving
3. Assisting on Confirmation retreat
when we offer a retreat for those preparing for Confirmation, Peer Ministers not preparing for Confirmation will be invited to assist
4. Help with Mass
Peer Ministers will be encouraged to attend the 5pm Mass (or another Mass with their family) and assist in some way: greeter, reader, etc.
Because of the pandemic, we need new people helping with Masses. A lot of the people who helped in the past are unable to do so – this is a great opportunity for teens!
5. Hospitality at Confirmations
For those Peer Ministers not receiving Confirmation, they will be invited to help “behind the scenes” during the Confirmation liturgies.
6. Help suggest other areas for growth of Teen Ministries
We want to empower the teens in Peer Ministry to identify areas of growth for our Church community.
- Social gathering with food and discussion
- Pilgrimages and Trips
- Praise and Worship Music events (LIFT, IGNITE!)
- Christian/Community service opportunities
- Leadership Training / Growth Opportunities (Steubenville East, Discipleship week)
- Deep reflection / Scripture study
We would be happy to speak with you about any of these opportunities – use the link to the form below and we will be in touch with you:
Know that any of our priests, or members of the staff, are available to talk with you about anything that may be on your mind.
