TO LEAD MIDDLE-SCHOOL & HIGH-SCHOOL TEENS INTO AN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST THROUGH TRUTH, GOODNESS, & BEAUTY.
St. Thomas Aquinas has a long history as a mission church in the West Valley of the Diocese of Phoenix. We haven't lost that missionary spirit and we approach youth & family ministry as the crucial mission field right in our own backyard.
Through our offerings of Life Teen (High School Youth Ministry), EDGE (Middle School Youth Ministry), and Purpose (6th - 12th grade Sacrament Preparation) we live to serve the youth community and empower families to become more firmly rooted in the Truths of the Bride of Christ, the Catholic Church.
OUR YEARLY THEME
GOD SHARES HIS AMAZING CREATIVE POWER WITH HIS CREATION WHEN WE ALLOW HIS WILL TO BE DONE IN OUR LIVES. This word that allows God to do big work is simple – the word is fiat - AND IT IS LATIN FOR “LET IT BE DONE”
This year at Life Teen & EDGE, we are going to be praying into that single word – fiat – and allowing it to radically transform us. We invite you to do the same and journey with us as we step into the new thing God is doing, and the ways that God still speaks light into the world, and the ways that God does that through each of us in a unique way – all of us filtering that light into the world.
