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.

Discipleship ‘Lectio Divina’ is our summer gathering where junior high/high school teens are invited to grow deeper with Christ in sacred scripture. Our mission is for our teens to be confident enough to pick up the bible on their own, for answers, for study, prayer and relationship. We will guide them in their encounter through the Word and with the Word, allowing them to break open the mystery of the scriptures through their own curiosity, redirecting it into prayer. We hope to see you soon! Peace and God bless. Pray for my teens.
Bible Study Dates: June 3rd, June 17th, June 24th, July 1st, July 8th, July 22nd.
*The BOLD High School Schedule for this upcoming year will be posted soon. Thank you for your patience.

Greetings in Christ,
Friends, there is no other quote that better describes the desire in the heart of our teens today than this:
“It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your hearts your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle.” – JP2
I humbly ask that you consider sponsoring a teen for this retreat in July. We need help. It’s been more than 5 years since they have encountered something this big outside of their own parish. Some have never even experienced a retreat outside of St. Anne.
Please consider making this commitment for a teen. If the desire even crosses your mind, see it as an invitation of our Lord to make a sacrifice for His church. The Lord is never outdone in generosity. “Love until it hurts,” says Saint Mother Teresa. God bless you.
"Some give freely, yet grow all the richer; others withhold what is due, and only suffer want." Proverbs 11:24
