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.

Help Sponsor a Teen for Steubenville Youth Conference (July 13-15, 2018) or Donate to Help with Transportation!
We are so excited for this year’s Steubenville West Tucson Conference in July, going on the 13th, 14th & 15th! Unfortunately, we are still in need of some financial help for those attending. We are also in need of some help to cover the remaining cost of transportation.
By the grace of God, a very generous parishioner will match ‘dollar for dollar’ (up to $750) for this need of ours! All remaining funds, after our goal is met, will go to next year’s Steubenville Youth Conference - for transportation, sponsorships & T-shirts for the teens.
Here are the two different links for you to sponsor a teen or donate for our transportation:
The following link is for sponsoring a teen. If you scroll down you’ll see a tab with different options that you can choose that works best for you.
This second link is for transportation and/or if you’d like to freely enter your own financial contribution. You do not have to have a PayPal account for this link. It’s an easy transaction.
Again, thank you all for your prayers, contributions and support. Continue to pray for our teens and our youth ministry program, that we may always walk in the light of Christ.
