Youth Ministry

CONQUEST, CHALLENGE AND HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH MINISTRIES:  Introducing three new North Stamford Catholic Youth Ministries coming this October: 

  • Conquest (for boys) and Challenge (for girls) in the 6th thru 8th grades – meeting from 6:30 to 8:00PM on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month;  Dates in October are 10/9 and 10/23;
  • High School Youth Ministry for high school teens meeting on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month from 7:00 to 9:00PM; Dates in October are 10/1 and 10/15;

St. Cecilia is partnering with Holy Spirit and other North Stamford parishes, to create a safe environment of spiritual enrichment, fellowship and fun for our kids.  Led by Fr. Joseph Gill, Spiritual Director at Trinity High and volunteers, the evenings will follow a structured format which includes sports/games, a virtue-/scripture-related presentation for discussion and a related activity, with some project time (e.g., service project) or free time to hang out.  Also, some really fun field trips are being considered for Fall/Winter such as Skyzone, skiing, a rope course, hiking, and more!!!
