Youth Ministry at Assumption Catholic Church

Welcome! Youth ministry at Assumption encompasses 5th grade through 12 grade. The high school program is Life Teen and Edge is for middle school.

Sunday Youth Nights are for Edge (5th-8th grade only) and Life Teen (all high school teens).

5th grade students are invited to join us in the second half of the school year beginning January 7.

Youth Nights take place after the 5pm Mass on Sundays during the school year. We eat dinner together and then split up to play and pray together until 8:15pm.

Youth Nights Will Resume in the Fall: Schedule will be Posted by August

Our school year of youth nights has come to a close and our summer is upon us.  We would like to, once again, thank our amazing core team for coming out each week to walk with our parish youth on their faith journey.  It is no small task and we could not do it without each and every one of you. 

Congratulations to all our graduates, both 8th grade and high school!  We will be praying for you through the summer and through the next events in your lives.  We are so encouraged by the faith we see you share in your relationships with one another and we are hopeful that you will continue to be beacons of Christ’s light to all those you meet.

We need You! Please consider volunteering.

Youth Ministry Wish List

Supporting the teens in our parish is crucial, and we’re reaching out to you for assistance. Check out our pages below for our Wish List, providing specific needs for teens to attend events throughout the year and summer beyond what Bayou Bash provides. Also, learn about our Money Wall, covering transportation costs for our summer programs.

Please share this with friends and help us help our young people! Thank you for all of your support.

There are many ways to volunteer with the youth ministry program and even more ways to support, but we ask anyone who visits this site or has an interest in the young church to pray for them! Pray for us! Pray for the ministry!
