This summer, high school students from around the nation are invited to apply for the Missionary Disciples Institute (MDI) on Marian University's Campus. The conference is from June 13th-17th and it is a time for the students to grow in their faith through intentional community, keynote speakers, praise/worship, and small groups where they learn about becoming disciples in their own church communities. These students will develop incredible friends and form relationships with current Marian students and faculty members. I highly encourage any student who is looking for ways to deepen their relationship with Christ, to become leaders in the church, and/or to get involved in a new and fun thing this summer to apply! The deadline to apply is March 1st! I hope to see y'all there! If you have any questions, you can reach out to, Sarah Heard. Thanks so much!
SMOY has several youth ministry alumni who currently attend Marian University, including Sarah. MDI is a great opportunity for students who want to be leaders in the church and their communities.
Get involved with Liturgical Ministries as a Eucharistic Minister, Lector, Usher, Mass Coordinator or Cantor!
If you're an 8th grader or current high school student and would like to be a part of the youth-led 5:30 pm Mass then choose a ministry and contact one of our teen Mass Coordinators to receive more information before or after Mass.
Youth Group Dinners
We need help providing for a crucial part of our Youth Ministry…FOOD!
When the HS group meets, we need dinner provided for the teens! To save the Youth Ministry budget for programming needs, we are looking for donations as well as help ordering/delivering and serving/clean up.
I grew up with four brothers and two sisters in Trenton, OH, where we attended Holy Name Parish until we moved to Champaign County. There, we attended Sacred Heart Parish in New Carlisle. Homeschooled until eighth grade, I went to Graham High School, Bowling Green State University, then the Air Force for three years before entering seminary. I enjoy praying the Rosary, and in my spare time, I like to read, play board games and video games, and watch sci- fi and fantasy films.
