SUMMIT

SR. HIGH YOUTH GROUP

 

 

 

(Click the YDisciple link and register to access YDisciple materials we will be using this year!)

 

Summit, our Sr. High youth group, is for all 9th-12th grade youth and is built to help teens grow in relationships with God and with each other through service, discussion, and social activities!

The goal is to creatively minister to teens by the study of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Each year we focus on one Pillar of the Catechism (Creed, Liturgy & Sacraments, Morality, or Prayer), striving to offer experiences that allow teens to explore topics in depth and find Jesus and his love for us in all of our lives. Each night consists of opening and closing prayer, icebreaker games, multimedia presentations, and group games or activities!

We also include social nights such as Bowling, Big-Time Trampoline, Mini-Golf, Movie and Game Nights, and Halloween and Christmas Parties! Serving the parish and our community is also an important aspect of our ministry! Some projects include cleaning our sponsored park trail, Operation Christmas Child, and the Spaghetti Dinner just to name a few!

We meet every Wednesday from 6:30-8 p.m. beginning on September 14th! All high school teens are encouraged to attend just to check out the program and our spectacular Youth Center! Registration begins in August, but is open all year round!

 

Youth Center

Our Youth Center is located directly below the main Church and spans the entire basement area in over 2750 square feet! It includes two entrances that lead downstairs to a gigantic open area with a ping-pong table, foosball, air hockey, couches, a big screen projector for movies and our Xbox Kinect games, snack tables, couch area and a full kitchen!

Also, adjoining is a whole separate room with a big screen tv for video games, another foosball table, and a pool table! We also have tons of board games and open space for games and activities! Come early to enjoy all our Youth Center has to offer. We open our doors every Wednesday at 6:00pm for you to socialize and have fun before we begin!

 

Conferences & Retreats

Each year we offer a high school retreat in the fall! This weekend retreat is full of fellowship and fun, but also about getting away from our busy lives to refocus our attention on building a better relationship with Jesus through prayer! Last year our retreat was located at the Franciscan Retreat Center in Colorado Springs!

Every summer our teens also attend the Steubenville of the Rockies Youth Conference! This awesome weekend retreat at the Crowne Plaza DIA is a life changing event for many teens around the entire country! Franciscan University of Steubenville has offered multiple summer youth conferences since 1976 with an exciting lineup of speakers, musicians, and presenters. This conference will challenge Catholic youth to not just learn about the Holy Spirit, but to get to know Him as the living presence of God in our lives.

In November 2015, our parish sent 7 teens to the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) in Indianapolis joining 23,000 other high school Catholic teens in celebrating their faith and love in God! The NCYC is a great experience for our youth because it allows them to meet thousands of other Catholic youth from around the country at the largest gathering of Catholic youth anywhere in the U.S! Attendees celebrate their Catholic faith as they share in daily Mass, Adoration, talks, workshops on topics that interest them, and participate in safe, fun activities during the conference.

Service

Shrine of St. Anne youth groups are about fun and fellowship, but also about growing closer to Christ by putting our time and talents to good use! We are proud to sponsor a part of the Ralston Creek park trail where which we help to keep clean year round, send our college student care packages 3 times a year, volunteer at our annual Spaghetti Dinner, help out at weekend coffee and donuts, volunteer during the holidays at the Operation Christmas Child warehouse, and Leave 'Em to the Angels where we open our youth center to babysit young children all day so parents can shop during the Christmas season! Another big event for our youth group is the Living Stations on Good Friday!

 

Social

During the program year we have plenty of fun stuff planned just to relax and enjoy the social aspect of ministry! Even Jesus enjoyed time away with his Disciples! Some things we've done in the past and have scheduled for this year are Bowling night, game nights, movie nights, Halloween and Christmas parties, mini-golf, Big-Time trampoline, and Nuggets/Avalanche games!

Our summers are also jammed packed with fun events! Check back next summer for our schedule of events which include Elitch's, Water World, Bowling, Double Feature Movie Nights, Movie's at Olde Town Theatre, Colorado Rockies Faith Days, Boondocks Fun Center, Denver Aquarium, Casa Bonita, Parish Bazaar Dunk Tank, Video game / Board game nights, hikes, and camping!
