High School Ministry


Creating fruitful encounters to help students become joyful missionary disciples of Jesus Christ through the Catholic Church!
Discipleship opportunities for High School students are geared toward creating faith-filled disciples of Jesus Christ, through the sacraments of the Catholic Church. Walk with us on this journey of faith and life. Jesus makes this life rewarding, but learning to walk with the journey with Him is better together.
 “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matt. 18:19–20.)
Steubenville 2024!

Calling all high schoolers! In our ever-changing world, Jesus is the answer to the longing of our hearts for meaning, fulfillment, security, and love. Join hundreds of Catholic teens at Steubenville Main Campus 2 on June 28-30, 2024 to be illuminated in the light of Christ.


All rising freshmen in high school through rising freshmen in college are invited to attend this retreat with our group!

Army of Mary
Free for all 6-12th grade boys and their father figures, Exercitus Mariae! (meaning “the Army of Mary) is a ministry created to counteract the way our society drives boys to question their individual value and role in society.
For our High School boys we are looking to create opportunities to learn and develop leadership skills and practice them with a team of mentors supporting you!
Volunteer adult male parishioners lead lessons on the catechism and challenging physical drills to help the boys and their fathers build fortifications against the tricks of the enemy, strong male friendships, and leadership skills. Started by two Knights of Columbus, this program is gaining more buzz and momentum with every passing day. Come see what Exercitus Mariae can do for you!

Tori Profile
Hi! My name is Tori Polhill and I am so excited to be joining the team here at Our Lady of Sorrows. I am so excited to meet you and especially walk with our young people as we journey together in this beautiful faith life we have.


A little bit about me outside of ministry, I grew up on the east side in Macomb Township and have two amazing parents and a twin sister! My sister and brother in law just welcomed my beautiful niece into the world in July and being an aunt to Clara has been amazing! I live in Sterling Heights with my husband Brad and our dog Kaladin. Brad and I were married in May of 2021 and have enjoyed every minute together since then. Kaladin is our good boy(most of the time…), he is named after one of our favorite characters in the Stormlight Archive novels from our favorite author (Brandon Sanderson anyone?).


When I am not with my family or working I love spending time with friends, reading, playing board games or catching up over some good coffee! I am a MAJOR coffee snob and huge nerd, luckily I married a nerd too so it all works out! I love all things Star Wars, Harry Potter and Marvel! Anytime you want to chat over some coffee or tea I would love to meet with you!


Feel free to reach out anytime! I am so excited to journey with you!
