Read the daily quote from Pope Francis


Church of the Incarnation Youth Ministry


Life Teen is a comprehensive youth ministry program with a strong focus on the Eucharist.  It is a parish-based Catholic-centered ministry for middle and high school teens.  The goal of Life Teen is to create an environment to lead teens into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church.  It speaks to teens on all levels--emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual.  Life Nights challenge teens to live their faith as they carry out their daily lives.  Teens experience this sharing in an atmosphere of love and acceptance from their peers and their adult core team leaders who are there to assist them in their journeys.  Teens are also encouraged to embody God’s Grace through mission and service opportunities in the Church in whatever capacity their time and talents allow.  Our high school Life Teen schedule can be found here.

Edge speaks to the younger pre-teen walking along their Confirmation preparation in encouraging personal relationship with Jesus.  Our response to God’s love for us is extending that love to the people in our lives: Our families, our friends, the less fortunate, and the broken and forgotten.  Service opportunities are acts of mercy and seen as the response to our Baptismal call.  Edge nights are packed with social as well as spiritual experiences on a level they process, while at the same time communicating with parents to help facilitate this forming relationship with Jesus.  A variety of prayer experiences frame Life Teen and Edge nights to help round out the large and small group discussions.  The youth are empowered to take what they’ve learned into their daily lives.  Our middle school Edge schedule can be found here.  


XLT is a Life Teen gathering for people of all ages who want to see, know, and love God. We come together to celebrate God’s love for us, and then are inspired to go out and share that love. We sing of God’s love with high-powered, full band praise and worship, hear about God’s love from our youth minister and other speakers, and spend time contemplating and receiving His love in a time of Eucharistic Adoration, a tradition in the Church that’s been practiced for centuries.  We also realize as humans we fall into sin, and for those times, confessors are available during XLT for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  

It’s a time for the whole family, the whole community, to come together and worship in fellowship and unity. Each XLT, we have college students, young professionals, grandparents and teenagers alike come through our doors and celebrate their faith together.  This is a time to be immersed in the Holy Spirit and spend this holy hour in unity with God.  Our XLT schedule can be found here.
