HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH MINISTRY
Hey, high schoolers! Welcome to STM’s High School Youth Ministry!
While your schedule is overflowing and life can get hectic during these four years, STM offers a place where you can grow in relationship with Love and Truth incarnate, meet incredible friends, and be a part of the community.
We offer weekly youth group, service opportunities, special events, a mentor program that allows you to guide and connect with middle school youth, and more. We go on unforgettable and potentially life-changing retreats and mission trips.
You’ll find something here for you to fit your interests, schedule and where you are in your faith journey. Join in this powerful adventure. Make your high school experience a good and memorable one in the Lord!
Breakaway - 9th-12th Wednesday Youth Group
9th-12th Grade – Wednesdays from 7:00pm-8:45pm in the High School Youth Center
Breakaway is our Weekly High School Youth Group here at STM. A chance to break away from the stress and pressure of everyday life and dive into faith, being with friends, playing games, and delicious snacks.
STM High School Youth Ministry offers mission trip opportunities through local, regional, and international trips focused on fellowship, faith development, and service.
Typically we offer regional trips over spring break , and local and international trips during the summer. We serve locally in Denver, but have been all over the country and world, allowing students to learn about travel and culture in addition to service.
Mission Trips are an incredible way to serve our brothers and sisters in Christ, bond with friends and leaders, and actively be the hands and feet of Christ. Our major Mission Trip each year is our Alternative Summer Break Mission Trip. We do international and national mission trips.
Alternative Summer Break is a week-long international or national mission trip at the end of July each year. STM Youth work to serve our brothers and sisters in Christ and build stronger relationships with Christ and each other. The location for ASB is different each year. In the past, we have gone to Peru, Kenya, Nicaragua, Philippines, Jamaica and more. In addition to serving we also visit tourist areas and spend quality time together. You’ll make lasting relationships with those around you, all while serving Christ. The adventure is waiting for you!
Open to all high school students.
Retreats and Pilgrimages
Just as Jesus needed to retreat and change His scenery to worship at His best sometimes, we too can benefit from getting away for a while to truly focus on God’s words to us and our hearts.
STM High School Youth Ministry offers retreats during the year — some local or on-site, and some at off site destinations. Retreats are some of the most powerful experiences proclaimed by participants and we invite you to a similar journey to grow closer to the Lord.
We also host occasional pilgrimages.
The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’” (Mt. 25:40).We work to provide a variety of service opportunities to high-school teens including nursing home visits, soup kitchen service, and serving within the greater parish community, among many other opportunities.
Project 600 – A massive annual Christmas party for inner-city kids from some of the poorest areas of Denver. This project incorporates volunteer preparation for the event, as well as generous parish toy donations as Christmas gifts for the kids. Click here to learn more.
SOUPer Bowl of Caring – All middle school, high school youth and their families are invited to help our brothers and sisters in need on SuperBowl Sunday. We break into teams, ask for donations at different grocery stores around STM, sort and box donations, and deliver them. All donations go to the Food Bank in downtown Denver! This is a yearly event!
