In an age of “selfies” and egocentrism, YOU cuts through the noise to present an authentic view of the human person. It presents young people with the extraordinary story of their creation as unrepeatable individuals. But the program doesn’t stop there. YOU: Life, Love, and the Theology of the Body introduces us to teens the truth that life is not, in fact, all about them; it is about going out of themselves to be a sincere gift for others. Some of the topics that we will go through are gender, pornography, and same-sex marriage.

This year, in our Discipleship Cells (aka Small Groups), we are going to look at the community of the early Church through the lens of our theme "of one heart and mind" (Acts 4:32).
The High School Youth Ministry Program at St. Gertrude is comprised of Discipleship Cells. These single-sex grade-based small groups help foster deep friendships and an environment conducive to mentorship and a support in the spiritual life. The Discipleship Cells will be meeting every Sunday from 7-9pm at the parish. Each Discipleship Cell contains about 7-10 teens and are led by 2-3 trained adults. If you are interested in being plugged into a Discipleship Cell or would like more information, please return to our 'Home' Page scroll to the bottom and email us!
