Our Lady of Mount Virgin Parish “The Upper Room Youth Ministry” was established in 2009 with a mission to bring teens closer to Christ.
“The Upper Room Youth Ministry” is open to all teenagers from 8th to 12th grade. The youth group follows a Eucharistic-based Catholic teen program called Life Teen. Fr. Fredy Sanchez, the spiritual leader, along with a team of trained CORE members, assist teenagers of faith to answer Jesus’ call in their lives, and draw them to the full participation in their life’s mission and work of the Catholic Church. During each Sunday’s “Life Night” teenagers will have the opportunity to meet other teens, participate in games, prayer, and small group discussions. Other fun activities during the year include retreats, socials, volunteer efforts throughout the community, concerts, lock in event, fundraising plus much more.
The Upper Room Youth Ministry meets on Sunday evenings in the school gym located at 188 Mac Arthur Avenue. Parents/Guardians are responsible for their child’s transportation TO and FROM each Sunday night.
