Welcome to the St. Clare’s Youth Page!

We’re glad you’re here. 🙂

Who is God?  Do you have questions about your faith?  Which rules in the Bible are more important than others?  Can church be fun?  Why does Jesus answer questions by telling a story?

These are all questions that teenagers have had about faith and religion.  Youth group is a place where we can talk about these questions, and about other things too.

Youth Group meets on Sunday afternoon from 12:00 to 1:30.  6th-10th grade teens participate in a wide variety of activities at St. Clare’s and beyond.  We pray, learn about God, play games, eat, sing on occasion, and talk about our lives, our faith, and our questions. We will finish our curriculum on “I Know My Bible” this year, as well as participating in discussions about justice, mercy, and loving Jesus.  We will also offer confirmation classes to our high school youth this year.

But…. we do a whole lot of other stuff too including diocesan events and field trips. Here are some activities that we will be doing in the upcoming months.


    October 10, 2020 – Diocesan Acolyte & Server Festival.  Mark Saturday, October 10, 2020 as the date for all Acolytes and Altar Servers to come to the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Detroit.  It will be a fun day to come together and celebrate your ministries.  More info to come soon!

    October 11, 2020 — Crop Walk.  Last year our youth group raised over $700.00 to provide food to families in need by participating in the Crop Walk.  We will participate again this year, and as more information becomes available on walking with others or walking virtually and documenting this on our Instagram page, we will share it with you.

    December 12-13, 2020 – Advent Lock-In.  Save the date for our annual Advent Lock-in.  We will embrace the waiting of the birth of Jesus with an Advent themed program, playing Romans and Christians, snacks, sleep, and worship on Sunday morning.
