Also if anyone has old bib aprons they want to get rid of, the art room would love have them as well. We can also use any leftover bottles of acrylic craft paint (like Apple Barrel) you might have sitting around.

High School Youth Group info

8th Grade Parents,


Although it's probably hard to believe, your 8th grader will soon be a high schooler! One of the toughest jobs we, as parents, have is to give our children the tools and resources to not only survive every new phase of their lives, but to thrive in them as well. Here is how we can help them through these upcoming high school years!


Statics show that the best way for teens to keep their faith alive is to be around other faith-filled teens, have knowledgeable and loving adult support, and to practice their faith on a regular basis.


Our parish High School Youth Group does just that! We have some wonderful, knowledgeable, loving adult leaders (listed below) who are always available to answer the tough questions teens today face. Teens in our youth group are accepting and inviting and we have a diverse schedule of activities planned for each youth group that will help each teen grow deeper in their faith. We also have a Wednesday morning Bible Study just for teens every Wednesday morning before school at Amack's Well!


If you are not already receiving emails from our parish high school youth group email account, please send an email to teamjesussteubenville@gmail.com to be added to our list. We will send you emails to let you know when youth group is coming up, what events are scheduled that teens can get involved in, Wednesday morning Bible Study for teens, and much more.


HS youth group is normally held 2x per month on a Sunday evening from 6:30-8:30, but will change periodically depending on the activity or parish schedule.


Adult Leadership Team includes:


Angie Moster

Dave Siegel

Jeremy Cook

Chassi Cook

Dr. Jon Fiest

Lindsay Fiest

Eli Huber

Haylee Siegel

Angie Price


Thank you,
