St. Philip's High School Youth Group:

Wednesday nights from 6:30 pm to 8:15 pm we host high school youth group. We gather in fellowship to grow and learn more about our faith and Christ. All high school aged youth are welcome to join the group and are encouraged to come as often as they would like. 

Students who attend youth group had these things to say: 

I like coming to youth group because it’s really fun, you get to meet a lot of new people and you get to get closer to God and learn more about Him.

Coming to youth group is always a fun time because we get to make new friends from other schools and we play games. Our leaders are funny and cool to be around. We get to learn about God.

I like to come to youth group every Wednesday night because I get to learn more about my faith and it is a really cool environment...and there is food!

We engage our youth through games, activities, small groups, talks and snacks. Our youth group is facilitated by adult volunteers called the "Core Team," with the guidance of  Bre Benavidez, the youth minister and Alvaro Romero, the Director of Religious Education. Core desires to lead teens closer to Christ and His church. The Core team ranges in age, from 18 to 40; we are so thankful and blessed that they would dedicate most Wednesday nights to helping share the gospel. We encourage all adults who have a desire to serve the youth to join us on a Wednesday night as we strive to be present to the youth.
