Theology and Church Teaching
Nights where we focus on the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of our teens.
Nights where we either study an aspect of the Scriptures or have a worship activity such as virtual Mass or Adoration.
Nights that promote community amidst our teens and the teens of St. Joseph Parish in Placentia virtually who we are working with on those evenings.
