BATTLE: Becoming All That The Lord Expects
The purpose of this group is to teach 5th through 8th graders more about their faith, developing a relationship with God through prayer, learning acts of charity through apostolic work, and interacting with their peers in a safe environment. The four main pillars that we focus on are: Catechism, Prayer, Service and Social.
BATTLE meets on Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. noon and on Tuesday evenings from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Every last Sunday of the month we have a “Mix it up Sunday" where the youth gets to learn about the saint of the month, and engage in fun activities with their peers. BATTLE also performs two service projects throughout the year as well as other social activities.
Activities, Events, News, and Information
Today’s youth paintball event was so awesome! I want to thank all the youth/teens for coming out, I always have a blast with you all! Thank you to the Knights of Columbus who cooked and helped make this thing possible, and also a huge heartfelt thank you to the parents who helped us in any way, shape or form. God is never outdone in generosity.
After lunch, we talked about the Armor of God, from Ephesians, and how the very first line tells us to be “strengthened in the Lord,” because if left to our own self, we cannot give ourselves what we don’t possess - faith, peace, hope and love. “Put on the breastplate of righteousness,” to not only guard our hearts from what the world offers, a false peace, but having it prepared for the coming of Jesus at every encounter, every trial, every new day he offers us to fall deeper in love with Him. God bless you all.
In Mary’s arms,
