Life Nights are teen events that happen almost every Sunday throughout the year. Life Nights take place immediately after the 5 p.m. Sunday Teen Mass at St. Francis de Sales, from 6 - 8 p.m. and food is served. These nights take on a variety of themes from learning about the faith to social nights and special events. Life Nights almost always occur in the teen area on the second floor of the Ministry Center (located behind the church). All high school teens are invited to these events. Teens do not need to be parishioners or practicing Catholics to attend Life Night. Bring a friend! See Upcoming Life Nights below or click here to view a flyer.
And please remember to join us for ADORE! every Wednesday in the Church from 7 to 8 p.m.

Join us for the fourth and final night in our fall topic series “THE COMPLETE & TOTAL GUIDE TO HUMAN HAPPINESS.” This night titled, The Drive of Your Life!, invites teens to understand that forming our conscience is an integral part of the Christian life and to challenge them to form their consciences in an intentional manner, rather than allowing the prevailing culture to form it for them.

Join us as we examine how the hopeful anticipation of the season of Advent compares to our own feelings regarding our hopes and dreams for the future.
