St. Luke’s Youth Group
Last Updated 10-24-17
Welcome to St. Luke Youth Group! Our mission is to aid in the formation of lifelong Catholics by providing a solid foundation in the Church’s teachings so teens can actively live their faith through the sacraments and contributions to our faith community.
Edge is our Middle School (6th-7th grades) program and Life Teen is our Confirmation and High School (8th-12th grades) program. We meet every Sunday night from 6:30-8:00 PM in the social hall during the school year.
In addition to our Sunday nights, we offer a variety of spiritual events for enhancing their faith formation, social events for forging Catholic friendships, and service events for embodying the Gospel.
Friends of all faiths are welcome and encouraged to join us for Edge and Life Nights every Sunday from 6:30 pm-8:00 pm. They are also invited to attend any of our Youth Group functions. Please complete all permission forms (found below) prior to off-site events.

Kroger Plus Card Users
Hopefully you have registered your Kroger Plus card with St. Luke online at krogercommunityrewards.com. Our NPO number is 30241. Once you have set up an account, when the statement comes in we need for everyone to check their accounts and get the amounts to Chris Crafton. Once the new statement comes out the amount for the previous quarter is gone and there is no way to retrieve it. Please take a screen shot of your current amount and email it to Chris at email@example.com The new quarterly amounts have come out so please do this asap! Money will not be credited to your personal account if you do not send her this info. The money will still go into the general youth fund regardless.
Our supporters (36 households) who shopped at Kroger between 6-1-2017 and 8-31-2017 have contributed $330.34 to our total donation.
