Welcome to RISE Youth Ministry at Our Lady of Good Hope Catholic Church!
We are glad you are here! This ministry started in March of 2022 to serve the high school teens of Our Lady of Good Hope and the surrounding community. Similar to other youth groups, we have a schedule of activities for high schoolers to attend, and we have two annual retreats that help our teens get away from the world and grow closer to Christ.
Saint Pope John Paul II was a huge believer in the necessity of a relationship with our Savior. He also believed heavily in the importance of ministry within the church, saying, “It is necessary to awaken again in believers a full relationship with Christ, mankind’s only Savior. Only from a personal relationship with Jesus can an effective evangelization develop.” Therefore, our mission is to help the high school teens of the church grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ, their understanding of church teachings, and the importance of the Blessed Sacrament in their faith to go and be the Light of Christ to everyone they encounter.
Be devoted to the Blessed Sacrament
Seek the Lord with prayer and worship
Love thy neighbor, even when it’s inconvenient
Serve others with a generous heart
Share the gospel, use words when necessary
