We have many exciting faith based events planned for our youth and young adults throughout the year. Learning, sharing, and growing in faith, in a fun and enriching environment is our goal.
Parish Youth Events
We post information regularly in the church bulletin and our youth bulletin board in the church entrance. The HFP Youth Facebook Page, and the HFP Youth Instagram Account also have informations about youth events for both parents and youth. If you ever have questions, feel free to contact Noëlle Pottle at
VERVE: For youth in grades 6-8, Verve is filled with games, talks, videos, and more. This year, we are using LifeTeen as our youth night program on alternating weeks, while we have Fun Nights, Guest Speakers and more on the other nights. Verve is at the Holy Family every Wednesday from 7-8:30, unless otherwise advertised.
UNITE: Having a group of friends that share your faith is so important, and that is what Unite does. This youth group is for all youth in grades 9-12, and is held at Holy Fmaily every Monday from 7-9, unless otherwise advertised. We are also using LifeTeen as this year's program, with Fun Nights, Guest Speakers, and more, sprinkled throughout the year!
What better way to unwind from Christmas and prepare for school and exams than a faith filled retreat?
5 parishes have gotten together to host the first ever Inter Parish High School Retreat! Holy Trinity, St. Albert Parish, Holy Family, St. Thomas More, and Our Lady of Perpetual Help have been working hard to organize this amazing retreat for all high school students!
The goal of this retreat is to help youth realize that our lives are filled with chaos, sin, and things we don't need. Only God can help us refocus and bring order and beauty to our chaotic lives.
We know that many high school students will be writing exams close to this date, and we understand that everyone is busy, but we want youth to realize that when our lives get too busy or chaotic, we still need to make time for God. We can study for hours and hours, but if we want to truly be ready and confident for our tests, tournaments, and life in general, we need to make sure that God is at the center of our lives.
This weekend is a chance for youth to take a step away from all the things that distract, and refocus on the things that matter the most.
CHAOS will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Sherwood Park on January 10-12. The doors will open at 7:00 pm on Friday, January 10th, and the retreat will end at 11:00 am on Sunday, January 12th. The cost for the weekend is $40. The deadline to register is Monday, January 6th. This retreat is for all youth in grades 9-12.
To register, there are two steps. First, please fill out this online form, and then download and print this form here. Bring the signed form into the office with the $40. Cheques or cash only, please. Cheques can be made out to Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
Please prayerfully discern attending this amazing retreat! You will have the chance to meet other Catholic youth from around the Archdiocese. Please invite your friends, and pass the word along about this retreat!
