Our Youth Programs are for young people in the 6th-12th grades. Our Young Adult Programs are for ages 18 thru 40. The programs are holistic, that is they reach all ages on all levels – emotional, intellectual, spiritual and relational.
Senior High Youth
All Senior High teens, 9th through 12th grades, are strongly encouraged to participate in St. Gabriel’s youth group based from the International Life Teen program, which is centered around the Eucharist, immediately following 6 pm Mass. These nights consist of catechetical nights based off the USCCB’s mandate for high school education, as well as a balance of issue and social nights. Other faith building opportunities consist of camps, conferences, mission trips, service opportunities, and social events.

Junior High Youth
All junior high youth, 6th through 8th grade, are encouraged to participate in the EDGE, the junior high youth program. EDGE meetings take place every Wednesday night beginning with a gathering in the church at 6:00 p.m. for a half hour of praise and worship and a large group teaching with the Little Saints. At 6:30 the EDGE catechetical teaching will begin in the activity room and end at 7:45. The EDGE program is a well-rounded program also based from the International Life Teen program, and is designed to meet the educational, spiritual, emotional and social needs of young adolescents.

St. Gabriel’s young adult group has developed a Frassati Group based from the life of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. The group is based off of the beatitudes and four pillars that Pier Giorgio lived in his own life: Faith Formation, Evangelization, Service and Sports. This is a new group that is growing. For more information call Diane Pickert at 816-453-1183, Ext. 208 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parent Life is a ministry dedicated and geared to parents.
