Growing Up Programs

Join us in celebrating our young people with food, fun, and fellowship! These events begin an important ongoing conversation about the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of growing up. With a variety of games, talks, and activities based on John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, our young people will develop an understanding and appreciation for God’s gift of our sexuality. They will also have an opportunity to have all of their questions answered.
