We are excited for another great year in youth ministry! Please join us in praying for our teens as they embark on a journey closer to Jesus and His Holy Church. A young person at OLMC has many opportunities to be involved with the youth program; no matter their spiritual level, schedule, or weekly time commitments.
The cost for this year’s Antioch program is $50. This will offset our social events and other activities associated with our Antioch Youth Nights. Click here for the (two page) registration form for the Antioch 2016-2017 year.

ANTIOCH YOUTH NIGHTS include:
Monday Nights - A.C.T.S. (7:00-9:00 pm) offers a place where teens can come and talk about real issues and how to apply the teachings of the Church to them. For weekly meeting locations, “Like” us on Facebook at “OLMC ACTS” or google “OLMC ACTS”.
Thursday Nights - ANTIOCH (7:00-9:00 pm) offers a time for prayer and worship through music, fellowship, and small group work. We meet weekly in the St. John Paul ll Youth Center by the Sports fields. We will be covering lots of topics ranging from Catholicism, the saints, and much more! Antioch teens will be challenged and encouraged to apply these things to their daily life.
Saturday Nights – Youth Holy Hour (8:00-9:00 pm), high school youth can join us for our youth Holy Hour in the OLMC Adoration Chapel. It is always inspiring and hopeful to come together and pray with peers. In addition to meetings available throughout the week, many retreats and conferences are offered.
