St. Ignatius Youth Group Invites You!

Youth Ministry is a vital part of the church today – that's why here at St. Ignatius Loyola we have
formed a High School Youth Group.  There’s no doubt that you are facing changes and challenges
every day – why not spend time connecting with other high school students through fellowship and
faith!  We personally invite you to attend the events listed – we’ve also included a brief explanation of
the evenings below.   There is no commitment – come to any or all of the evenings scheduled. Bring a
friend and experience for yourself…that’s the best way to know if this is for you! If you would
like to be placed on the e-mail list for future dates and activities, please email us at
youthministry@stignatiusreading.org with your name, email address and parents’ e-mail address.

Activity Nights:
Nights where the youth are invited to take part in games, fellowship, faith, and snacks.

Homework, Dinner, Praise Nights:
This is an evening offered every second Thursday of the month when the High School youth are
invited to bring their homework and share in dinner together. Following dinner the youth are
encouraged to attend a prayer and praise service in the chapel.  Homework and dinner will be held in
the John Paul II Room in the Church.

“Created for Love” Series:
Using a mix of stories, real-life examples, activities, discussions, and references to the culture you
understand, Theology of the Body for Teens presents Pope John Paul II’s compelling vision for love
and life.  Far from a list of rules and “don’ts” this series will give you a guidebook to help answer the
fundamental questions of life, such as: Why did God give us sexual desires?  What is the difference
between love and lust?   How far is “too far”?  These evenings will include snacks and social time!

Steubenville Youth Conference:
A weekend retreat  where hundreds of High School students from all over the country gather to learn
about and discuss their faith. There will be dynamic speakers, great music, and amazing opportunities
to share fellowship not only with youth in our parish but also with youth from all over the country.  

If you have any questions, please contact us by phone at 610-679-0676 or email
youthministry@stignatiusreading.org
All high school youth are invited to attend any (and all) of the events!  We look forward to seeing YOU
in the near future.

God Bless,
Youth Ministry Team: Yvonne, Dan, Jim, Marianne, Patti, Eleana, and Chris
