Welcome to Saint Rose of Lima Youth Ministry! We are finding God in faith, fellowship, service, enrichment, and athletic activities for teens in grades 7 through 12.
During the school year, our SALT (Sunday Afternoon Life Teen) gatherings provide time for us to enjoy fellowship with our peers and engage in activities that enrich our personal and spiritual growth. NEW SALT SCHEDULE! Sunday SALT meetings are held on the second and fourth Sundays of every month, from 1-2:30 PM in the Youth Room.
Our two Little Free Libraries will soon be installed in the grassy area near the Parish Center at the corner of Hamline and Skillman. Here’s a sneak peek:
Youth Ministry is on Facebook! Make sure to check us out, and “like” the page to receive updates!
All teens under 18 must have a parent sign the social media release form, which includes a photo and video release, and allows us to communicate with teens through social media when applicable. If you do not have one on file, please fill out a Social Media Release Form.

SPECIAL EVENT SAMPLER: 2016-2017
September, 2016: Our year got off to a great start with our Welcome Back Skating Party at Saints North Family Skate Center. Our members have said they love skating here and the staff at Saints North treats us very well! We are grateful to them for occasionally sending us generous supplies of free admission coupons! We also enjoyed “Dinner and a Movie Night.” After dining on tacos, we enjoyed a movie and freshly popped, buttered popcorn. We also had shared fellowship and some great back-to-school homework strategies and ways to manage work loads and stress at our Coffee Shop Talk.
October, 2016: We found God in faith, fellowship, and service! Our “Rake & Run” service project proved that many hands make light work – and that helping others really DOES feel great! We had our largest group to date at our Coffee Shop Talk gathering — 15 members joined us for fellowship and good discussions! We had our Cookie Dough Sale Mission Trip Fundraiser, and enjoyed games and the movie “Goosebumps” at our Halloween Costume Social.
