St. Stephen’s Youth Group is a welcoming and faithful group of our kids in grades 6 through 12. The Youth Group gathers to perform service projects, have fun community time together, and learn more about our lives of faith as Christ’s body in the world.
Some of our past events have included volunteering at the food pantry, Christmas shopping for needy families with children, hiking with spiritual discussions, cleaning up at Adopt A Dog, and doing a scavenger hunt around town to see how our church is tied to our community.
All young people in grades 6 through 12 can attend.
If your child would be interested in Confirmation, please contact the Parish Office. Typically we would recommend confirmation once a young person has reached the 7th grade.
Most young people in our parish also serve as ‘acolytes’ - a robed assistant at the altar. Acolytes start out at elementary school age as ‘torchbearers’ (carrying processional candlesticks) and once they have got to the 6th or 7th grade they can graduate on to being an altar server and ‘crucifer’ (carrying the processional cross). Once in a while one or two of our senior acolytes will serve as a ‘thurifer’ (the acolyte who looks after the burning of incense).
