Youth Ministry

“Growing closer to God and one another as we grow ourselves.”

Our High School Youth Group is open to all parish high school students. Join us every month on the 2nd and 4th Sundays. Life Nights follow the Mass from 6:00-7:30 PM in the Lubeley Room. Our hope is to create a safe place for teens to share and discuss faith issues while strengthening our high school community. We offer the following retreat experiences each year:

  • Luke 18 – This incredibly popular weekend retreat is led by high school students and young adults. The aim is to teach parish 8th graders about the amazing love of God through the witness of our teen leaders. The retreat is generally held in February. This year the retreat is February 12-14, 2016.
  • Steubenville Catholic Youth Conference – Held each summer on the campus of Missouri State University, this dynamic weekend brings together thousands of young people in a celebration of our faith. Registrations now available for July 2016!

EDGE is our junior high youth ministry program offered to parish 7th and 8th graders. EDGE meets on the 4th Sunday of each month from 6:00-7:30 pm. The focus of these meetings is faith mixed in with lots of fun.

Please read the “MQP Youth News” section of the parish bulletin weekly to keep up with all of the on-going activities and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

For All MQP Teens:
The MQP Youth Group is made up of teenagers interested in coming together to grow in their relationship with Christ and each other. All teens are encouraged and invited to actively participate in many of the ministerial roles. Opportunities exist for teens to utilize their gifts and talents with the entire parish community by lectoring, serving, being a Eucharistic Minister, or serving as a greeter.
