Monthly "DISCIPLESHIP NIGHTS" are like a RETREAT rolled into one evening a month.  They combine a teen social, relevant group studies, and deep prayer.  After going deeper into age-appropriate, retreat-like (non-classroom) study & reflection on St. John Paul II's "The Theology of the Body," the youth will end the evening connecting with the Risen Jesus in a dynamic Holy Hour (opportunity for Confession!).  The next day, we will go out to serve.  The schedule for DISCIPLESHIP NIGHTS is as follows: 

  • 6:00 p.m. in the Hall: Social, including light food, music, games, ping pong, etc. 

  • 6:30 p.m.: Meeting of DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS:

    • High School Group (ice breakers, prayer, a presentation, dynamic videos, and brotherhood/sisterhood small group discussions);

    • Middle School Group (ice breakers, prayer, age-appropriate teaching/videos, energy activities, small group discussion); 

    • Parent Study Group (by Cor Jesu parents in leadership): Using Catholic studies through "," we will go deeper into the Faith. (Please note that we will have a CHILDREN'S ACTIVITY COORDINATOR so that the whole family can be involved!)

8:15 p.m.: HOLY HOUR and Confessions to help youth and families to encounter Jesus. This will be a traditional Exposition/Benediction service, with chants, praise music, Scriptural reflection, and compline prayers. All are welcome!
