Youth Group

The Good Shepherd Youth Group (GSYG) offers fun and faith-filled activities for the youth of our parish. The Youth Group’s mission is to encourage teens to grow in relationship with Jesus Christ and with one another, and to show them they can make a difference in our world. GSYG meets for service projects, outings, formation and prayer, and good ol’ fun.

Summer Opportunities

Extreme Faith Camp [EFC] - McGregor, MN (Big Sandy Camp)

Campers (Current 6-8th Graders) June 8-12, 2020 | Leaders (High Schoolers/Young Adults) June 6-12, 2020

Extreme Faith Camp is a one-week camp for current 6th through 8th grade students. It’s a real camp, for real teens, where they will encounter the One, Real, Living God. Surrounded by the beauty of northern Minnesota, on the campus of one of the elite camps in the Midwest, and saturated in the beauty of our rich Catholic tradition, EFC is a life-changing experience. We spend the week with teens from several other parishes throughout the Archdiocese and have a blast with a crazy variety of activities (including a water slide), and we encounter Christ through the power of the Sacraments, challenging talks, and small group sharing. This Catholic Camp is the real deal.
