Fall 2020 Programming

We’re so excited to get back to programming on SEPTEMBER 13th! We have missed you all over the summer. Unfortunately, COVID-19 means that we cannot return to normal programming. In lieu of large group gatherings, we’re moving to a small group setting! Before we let you know the plans, please note:

  1. Some of the small groups will be held in the Teen Center at HFK. We can fit 7 teens maximum in this room while social distancing. Masks will be required at all times.
  2. If you cannot make the dates/times below but still want to be part of a small group: please email Cathleen (cathleeni@hfkparish.org) or Colin (colinl@hfkparish.org).
  3. If you are interested in these small groups but uncomfortable meeting in person, please let us know! We can always work with you to see if you can Zoom into the meeting!
  4. The registration fee of $150 is waived this year. Instead, we ask that your student bring $10 (cash or check) to the first small group that they attend.

Please read all the way to the end of this page; there is information concerning united EDGE & Life Teen activities.

Life Teen

  • Sunday Catholic Social Teaching Small Group:
    • 3:30 – 4:30 pm in the Teen Center
    • 6 week Session
    • Open to all high schoolers
    • The topic of this small group is Catholic Social Teaching. In a world where everyone seems to be talking about justice and human rights, it’s important to know what Christ’s Church has to say on these topics. We’ll be looking at the seven principles of Catholic Social Teaching, racism, and other topics you are interested in from a specifically Catholic perspective. One we finish this, we’ll move to a different topic for the next six weeks.
  • Sunday True Heart Small Group:
    • 6:30 – 7:30 PM in the Teen Center
    • 6 week session
    • Open to Juniors – Seniors
    • This will be our True Heart small group, which is the youth and young adult version of the Sacred Story Communities Fr. Nagel introduced to the whole parish earlier in the summer. This group will be a more rigorous prayer and spirituality group. It’s all about Ignatian spirituality and focuses heavily on developing the ability to see where God is acting in your life. It will require daily prayer and some time each day unplugged from technology. Find out more about True Heart here.
  • Wednesday Small Group:
    • 3:30 – 4:30 PM in the Teen Center
    • Topic TBD (depends on the wait lists for other groups)
    • Will run for 12 sessions
  • Wednesday Charisms Small Group:

    • This will be Unleashed: Charisms, a Life Teen small group on our spiritual gifts through the lens of the Church’s religious orders! If you want to learn more about how God made you and how you can exercise your gifts, this is the group for you! After six weeks, we’ll move on to another topic.
