Life Teen (Grades 9-12)


Grades 9-12

+ Wednesday Life Nights

Life Teen is a Catholic high school youth discipleship program. We create a safe place for young men and women to find real and solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way!

Wednesday Life Nights frequently involve a range of activities, including...

  • Dynamic talks!

  • Discipleship groups!

  • Snacks!

  • Expressive praise and worship!

  • Adoration and Confession!

  • And much more!

9th-12th graders, we invite to join us at Life Teen on Wednesdays from 6:30 PM-8:00 PM! Don't forget to register for Life Teen! You can contact Addy Diaz at 952.261.0566 or for more information. We can't wait to see you!

+ Confirmation


Welcome to the St. Therese Confirmation Program! Our staff members dedicate themselves to helping your son or daughter in their discipleship walk to know and carry out the deep love of Jesus and His Church. Through the Confirmation preparation process, we will... 

  • Teach your youth about Christ, His Church, and His Sacraments

  • Challenge them to discover their God-given gifts and talents

  • Give them vital tools to deepen their life of prayer

  • Introduce them to a vision for a full life in Christ

  • Form them into a community of disciples prepared for Jesus' mission in the world

We pray that through preparation for the reception of Confirmation, your son or daughter will find a home and purpose in the Church as they are conformed to Jesus' heart for loving the world!

If you have any questions, please contact Addy Diaz ( or Angie Wilz ( for more information.
