Life Teen

The formation process for young people must be constant and active, capable of helping them to find their place in the Church and in the world. Consequently, youth ministry must be one of the primary concerns of Pastors and communities.

John Paul II, Ecclesia in America (EA) #47


As a Eucharist-centered ministry within the Roman Catholic Church, Our Lady of the Lake’s Youth Ministry leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, we seek to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within the young Church.
—Adapted from Life Teen’s Mission Statement

Faithful to the Magisterium, we follow the USCCB’s framework for catechesis with youth, and follow the Diocesan standards for Youth Ministry.

About Life Teen

Life Teen was launched as a parish-based youth ministry in Mesa, AZ focused on the Mass and gathering teens together at a Life Night. We continue to be focused on bringing teens to Christ in the Eucharist and gathering them to be formed in the Roman Catholic faith.

Students from 9th-12th Grade are welcome to register and attend Life Teen Nights.
