LIFE TEEN - High School Youth Ministry

LIFE TEEN: High School Youth Ministry

“This is what is needed: a Church for young people, which will know how to speak to their heart, and enkindle, comfort, and inspire enthusiasm in it with the joy of the Gospel and the strength of the Eucharist…” (St. Pope John Paul II, 1995)

What is Life Teen? 
Life Teen a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church, leading teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within the young Church!
We meet Sunday evenings after the 5pm Youth Mass, two or three times a month, in Seelos Hall at St. John Neumann Church. We begin our evening with pizza, and enjoy social time, prayer, discussions, and other faith-based activities. Together we support each other and learn how to put our faith into practice.
Life Teen serves as part of required preparation by the Archdiocese of Baltimore for high school students not attending Catholic school and planning to be confirmed through St. Mary’s Church. High school teens seeking Confirmation must be enrolled in Life Teen both the year before and the year of Confirmation in order to meet Archdiocesan Confirmation guidelines. To register, complete the registration form and submit it to Mary Lipscombe, St. Mary’s Coordinator of Youth and Young Adult Ministry, who will also be willing to answer any questions.
Join us for faith, food, and fellowship, all are welcome!


Every Sunday evening at 5 p.m., St. John Neumann holds a Youth Mass. All families, particularly those with middle school and high school students, are encouraged to attend, and are encouraged to actively participate in the liturgy as altar servers, lectors, musicians, etc. If you would like to help with the Youth Mass, please contact Barbara Rolland at 410-990- 4053.
