Our winter retreat offers our high school youth the opportunity to get away from distractions and reconnect with God.

Open to all 9th through 12th grade students.

The location we are going to is a beautiful setting in Hunterdon County. Our youth will enjoy everything it has to offer.  Refer to the center’s website for more information about the retreat center –

Parents will drop students off at the retreat center at 7:00 pm on Friday, February 2nd and youth ministry staff will bring the youth group back to the parish on Sunday, February 4th for 12:00 pm Mass. Parents can join Mass and/or pick up after Mass.

Youth Ministry Schedule

Youth Ministry Tuesday Night Meetings (dates noted above)

are 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm (doors open at 7:00 pm)

in the Lighthouse (3rd Floor of School Building) 

Some details pertaining to a few dates:

10/17: Mare Ernesto will be presenting information for JusticeworX, a week long service program based out of Mercer County.  You may be familiar with ServiceworX, another service offered through the Center for FaithJustice, from Confirmation preparation at St. Bernard’s.  The presentation will begin at 7:30.  Please let me know by 10/10 if you will be attending. 

 10/29: Our first (and hopefully annual) Tricky Tray Trick or Treat.  The event will take place from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., after and between each Mass.  There will be trick or treating, mini-pumpkin decorating and tricky tray baskets for families to try and win.  Some of the youth ministry participants are contacting local businesses/establishments to see if they would donate items for baskets.  The information is also in the bulletin.  If anyone would like to sponsor a basket or has any contacts to add items to baskets, please do not hesitate to contact me!
