St. Luke’s Youth Group
Last Updated 7-3-17
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-8th grades) program and Life Teen is our Confirmation and High School (9th-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.

Summer Sunday Evening Class for Middle School Girls
It’s not easy to be a middle school girl. Dealing with cliques, bullying, rejection, and social media fiasco can be
overwhelming and disheartening. Thankfully, there’s a way to rise above it. There’s a way to find love, acceptance, and security without compromising your integrity, your faith, or your future.
Classes continue through July 23 — (Please bring a snack to share)
Course is based on the book 10 Ultimate Truths Girls Should Know by Kari Kampakis.
Where: St. Luke Social Hall
When: 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
The format will be very similar to current Edge classes.
The class is free to all who wish to participate. You may purchase the book, but you are not required to. Parents, some
material is more suitable for older teens and will not be covered in this group. Please be aware of this before allowing your
daughter to read the material on her own. Mothers are welcome to attend with your daughters if you desire. Class leaders:
Melinda Castor and Rebecca Schepisi. If you have any questions, please contact Rebecca Schepisi at
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 (28 households) who shopped at Kroger between 3-1-2017 and 5-31-2017 (Cycle 2016, Qtr 3) have contributed $318.42 to our youth program.
