Dear young people, listen closely to the words of the Lord, that they may be for you “spirit and life” (Jn 6:63), roots which nourish your being, a rule of life which likens us – poor in spirit, thirsting for justice, merciful, pure in heart, lovers of peace – to the person of Christ.

– Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

Youth Ministries

At Immaculate Heart of Mary, our youth ministry program seeks to lead middle school and high school aged youth closer to Christ. The combination of catechesis and Christian fellowship unites our group for the common goal of holiness. We meet on a weekly basis for youth group. We are always open to new members and look forward to meeting you or your teens.

Life Teen

Life Teen

Life Teen is our high school program open to all from 9th to 12th grade.

Life Teen is a virtuous environment for young people to thrive and pursue authentic friendships. Our teens will dig deep into questions and issues that they encounter in their daily lives, all while having fun. Meets Mondays 630 PM – 8PM.

EDGE

EDGE

EDGE is our Life Teen program specifically for middle-schoolers.

Young people want to go deeper in their faith and we want to offer them the opportunity. All 6th–8th graders are welcome to join us Wednesdays 630PM-8PM.

Every year 1000+ middle school students (6-8th grade) gather at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park to encounter God through a “mountain-top” experience.  Each year we bring in a speaker/entertainer to host the weekend – this year we will be joined by Apex Ministries.  The high energy speakers, dynamic worship, fellowship and adoration help ignite a passion for Jesus in the young people which encourages them to live their faith in everyday life.
