Youth Ministry-High School

Youth Ministry of Holy Spirit and St. Joseph Parishes


Welcome! The High School Youth Ministry program at Holy Spirit and St. Joseph Parishes (sALt) is for teens in High School interested in developing a community that provides opportunities for social interaction, meaningful participation in the Church, but most importantly, opportunities to encounter Christ.  Our program includes liturgies, social events, retreats, service projects and programs geared towards and relevant to the issues and struggles that are faced daily by teens as they grow and mature.  We welcome all teens of any or no particular faith to participate in any and all Youth Ministry events. Let this be the year we get to know you!

UPDATE: Insight Nights are back IN PERSON starting 1/3/21! Hybrid option available!

What is Insight Night? Insight Night is our weekly discussion based meeting where high school aged teens of any high school, faith, or city come together to talk about what is important to you (and yes, eat and play ridiculous games). Sundays 7:30-9:30pm in Fr. Mosovsky Hall at Holy Spirit (Don't worry, we'll go back to using the Youth Room-it's just taking a break until we no longer need to worry about keeping a distance).

Insight Night Topics:

2/28: Failure Looks Good on You.

3/3: Lenten Service Night

3/14:  Hold the Green Dye: Catholic Culture+ Laetare Par-tay (say that 10 times fast)

3/21: Guilty.

3/28: "Friend, Do What You Came For." Betrayal


4/11: THE RETURN OF THE EPIC EASTER EGG HUNT  (We've got two Easters to celebrate peeps)


GroupMe Mafia Continues!

Our 8th Game is underway, just in time to get snowed in!

If you've ever been to Insight Night, you probably know that we like the old school whodunnit game. A lot. Our Jr. High Minister Michael Grecol has found a way to keep the game going-anyone from sALt or sALt Lite are welcome to join (13+please!). Info and sign up here.

Wednesdays with sALt


Drop-In is the much-less-structured-more-about-fellowship sibling of Insight Night where we do anything from hiking to playing Jackbox games to just hanging out. Anyone in High School is welcome! New dates and new time! Feb. 3rd, Feb 24th, Mar 10, Mar 24 5:00-6:30pm!

Coffee and Contemplation
