St. Peter’s Teens in Action
The St. Peter’s Teens in Action Youth Group is built on the premise that the teens and youth of our parish are a blessing and a gift. Teens are an integral and important part of our parish family as they are the future of our church and they bring unique talents to our parish family.
We strive to:
Provide a safe zone where teens can connect to each other to share their faith in a fun way.
Help teens be authentic in their sharing and to find and live out their connection to God.
Be a place for teens to develop friendships with others who share similar morals and values and to be known for something other than academics or sports.
Empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
Challenge teens to find their inner strength to put their God-given talents to use to learn what it means to serve others as Christ did.
Draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the St. Peter’s faith community.
Foster the total, personal and spiritual growth of each young person and find the best in each teen.
Be concerned with the whole person, addressing young people’s spiritual needs in the context of other parts of their lives.
We are truly blessed to have an active teen population in our parish and are very appreciative of the support of the parish to help keep our “teens in action,” living out their faith!

The 2018-2019 TIA Year is Off to a Great Start!
Ringing in the New Year
Christmas Work and Play Time for Teens
The TIA was busy the whole way through the Christmas holiday, kicking off the season by helping out at the Christmas Fair on November 17th. 16 teens spent part of all of their Saturday manning the TIA table (where we hosted our first Totally Catholic Jewelry and Rosary fundraiser), waiting tables at the cafe, and helping fair patrons with their large purchases. And at the December regular meeting, a competitive game of Christmas Carol Bingo followed the “decorate a teen” contest. More than 30 teens were able to join the ever-popular movie and bowling night before New Year’s and the first meeting of January was a “Minute-to-Win-It” battle of epic proportion. We also dug out the Peace Pole, a gift from TIA alumni and had a thoughtful discussion about peace in the New Year. (Look for the Peace Pole to make an appearance in the church!)
It’s hard to believe it’s already 2019. We’re quickly planning for a number of upcoming events, including the Roses for Autism Fundraiser in January and February and the Living Stations of the Cross during Lent.
Some important upcoming activities and dates to remember:
- Roses for Autism: Teens will take orders after all masses the last two weekends in January and the first weekend in February. All red, all pink, all yellow, all orange or rainbow dozens available this year for $25/dozen. Orders will be distributed after masses on Feb. 9th and 10th.
- Next Regular Meeting: February 10th
