Encountering Christ by Helping Others (E.C.H.O) is our middle school youth ministry night. During the School Year we will meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:00pm in the Parish Hall. Students who ware in the 6th-8th grade are invited to come together to enjoy an evening of games, discussions, engaging stories, Christian music videos, and small group activities. Our topics & themes include lessons from Sunday's Mass Readings, Lives of the Saints, and How to Survive Middle School. E.C.H.O is not another class in the day, rather it is an evening that connects students in deeper friendships with their peers and with God. It is a great mixture of Food, Fun, and Faith. Middle School students from any school may begin this program at any time of the year.


Help Feed our Hungry Kids: Parent's, our students often come hungry after a full day of school and sports practices. This year we are going to try something new. We are asking each family to help provide one dinner for all of our students during one Night of the year. Please consider signing up for ONE Night this year in cooking & bringing food for everyone at ECHO. This could include a Nacho's Night, Burrito Night, Chili Night, Sandwich Night, Pizza Night, or some other kind of delicious easy to make dinner. Contact Chris to be added onto our schedule and to see what other parents are bringing throughout the year.

To Register:

*Please download a Youth Ministry Registration Form from the Documents Tab
and bring it with your student to our next ECHO Youth Night if you have not done so already this year.




ECHO Schedule



Introducing EDGE.  Edge is a national program designed to challenge the students with effective materials as well as engaging parents in meaningful conversations with their child either during or after the ride home. All parents who register their child for ECHO will also enter a parent ministry by which they will receive an email that will inform them about what we are talking about on a particular night as well as some discussion questions to help foster positive communication with their son/daughter.

We meet on the following Tuesday Evenings from 6:30-8:00pm:
