For students in grades 7 – 12: LifeTeen strengthens our teens’ Catholic identity while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church. Life Teen is open to all high schoolers. We usually meet from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the LifeTeen room in the St. Columba parish center. Enter through the library in the rear by the school playground.
We provide a safe environment once a week to talk, laugh, play games, and most importantly, learn how to deepen our faith which is so vital to each of us personally and to our communities. This year, Life Teen is not only open to high schoolers, we invite all 8th graders as well.
I will be sending that out in an email and a text every week as a reminder. If you think I do not have your email address or phone number, call or text me at 570-441-3459 and give it to me so that I can include you in my Life Teen groups.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me, Karen Konkolics, at email@example.com or call me at 570-441-3459

ABOUT THIS SERIES
To be Catholic and to follow Jesus commits us to social justice. The Beatitudes provide a practical roadmap for how we live out our calling to the Kingdom of God. Each of the Beatitudes motivates us and provides tools for us to live out Catholic social teaching. Through them, we will be challenged to hear the difficult but liberating words of Jesus and respond with compassion and justice. The Work at Hand is a Life Night series that inspires teens to live according to the Beatitudes in order to work towards a more just world.

If you would like to help with snack donations, we could use snacks of any kind. It is best to donate snacks that are individually wrapped so that they are always fresh. Soda and water is something we use every week. The teens also LOVE freshly baked items. We also make great use of gift cards: Giant, Weis, or Walmart. Life Teen provides pizza and snacks for the teens every week, so if you can help in any way it would be greatly appreciated. It is best to drop or mail your donation to the Church office. Or you can contact Karen Konkolics at 570-441-3459 to make other arrangements. Thank you so very much.
