St. Patrick’s Youth Group or SPYG, is a vibrant youth ministry made up of dozens of high school teens throughout Montgomery County from many different private, and public schools as well as our homeschool community. The youth ministry program at St Patrick Parish invites teens into an intimate relationship with Christ through the richness of the Catholic Church. We seek to accomplish this goal in four main ways: prayer, positive relationships, service, and catechetical formation.
Youth Ministry strives to help teens' faith not only survive high school, but thrive through it! We encourage healthy development of our youth, walk with them through struggles, give them a place to form friendships with peers who share their beliefs, and challenge them to integrate faith and life.
Here are some ways for high school teens to get involved with SPYG!
Weekly Youth Groups
SPYG meets almost every Wednesday throughout the year from 7-9pm in the Youth Room at the back of the parish center. Our nights include dinner, games and sports, formal catechetical teaching, small and large group discussion and prayer.
Every fall and spring, youth group goes on retreat. Retreats are a chance for teens to get away for a weekend and spend time in prayer, learning, and relaxing with friends.
Each summer, our youth group attends several service and leadership camps.
Once a month, on a day other than Sunday, we run a social event like an all-night Lock Out, ice skating, bowling, etc.
