THE WORLD HAS CHANGED. OUR MISSION REMAINS.
2020 has been a year of unprecedented changes, hardships, and unknowns. Here at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, we understand how difficult it may be for you and your child to adapt to these uncertain times and retain a sense of normalcy.
Our approach may be different this year, but our mission remains the same: to lead teens closer to Christ.
LIFE TEEN + EDGE = GUADALUPE YOUTH
Guadalupe Youth is the name of the our new youth ministry program that includes both Life Teen and Edge. We are restructuring in this way for the school year in order to adapt to the challenges of Covid-19.
MAIN MEETS WILL BE HELD ON SUNDAY EVENINGS ON ZOOM
Our main meeting for all middle & high school youth will be held virtually on Sunday evenings from 6:30 - 7:30 pm through Zoom. We begin our sessions all together as a big group for the teaching of the day and then break off to our small groups by grade level for deeper discussions.
IN-PERSON OPTION WILL BE HELD ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS
For those who sign up for the in person option, students can attend the socially distant in-person meetings wearing their masks, which will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. For your child to attend the in-person, they must RSVP weekly and spots will be limited to first come, first serve. We will ensure a safe and secured space, either in a sectioned-off portion of the parking lot, the pavilion, or inside the hall for inclement weather. The 1st Wednesday is Night of Worship for BOTH middle & high school students. The studetns will be separated by age group for a social before attending Night of Worship which includes adoration, praise & worship and reflection. The 2nd Wednesday will be designated for middle school students only and the 3rd Wedneday will be for high school students only.
HYBRID OPTION (COMBINATION OF ZOOM AND IN-PERSON)
For those who sign up for the hybrid option, youth can attend BOTH the virtual main meeting AND the in-person meetings on Wednesdays. This gives the youth an option if they prefer to dive deep in an in-person setting in addition to meeting via Zoom.
