Dear Young People:
Thank you for coming to visit the Our Lady of Sorrows Youth Disciples webpage!  We can hardly wait to meet you.  Pick an event below and come on out, or contact me for more details.  I’m here to work for you (and Jesus!)  You could start by clicking on the orange button below to tell me about what you are looking for from your parish, or just scroll down to find what you came for!
Prayerfully yours,
Students grades 6th-12th, please click the button above to give us ideas and information that we will use, as we plan next year's events FOR YOU!  Thanks for taking 10 minutes or so to do this.  Your opinion matters!


Youth Disciple Activities for YOU!
Attention all High School Graduates!  Please drop me a line to communicate your plans for next year: we would love to celebrate (and communicate) with you!  Join us for YOUR party June 5th!  You will be invited to share a few words of wisdom to the younger classes, if you so desire.  This will be the first (and last) event that the newly graduated 8th graders will attend with all of you upperclassmen!  Graduation Party
Vacation Bible School: Help us host a room, June 20-24, 2022! Contact me for more info @ hsoderquist@olsorrows.com
Small Group Studies on Prayer:   Sign up or Drop in for the “Known” series by YDisciple! Sundays: 2-3:30pm, Youth Room (Parish Office).   April 24, May 22, June 12. Mondays (Ladies only) 5:45-7:15pm, Youth Room, April 25, May 16 & 23, and June 6th.  
Leadership Team:  Please consider applying to be part of one of our teen leadership groups!  We will be shaking things up a little for next year possibly adding in a Service Club Liaison. I am looking for a few new voices to help make 2022-23 the best year for OLS YD!  Click the blue button below to get started.
Thank you for your interest in helping your teen connect with their faith!  I am most interested in you sharing your opinions and needs by clicking the button below.  I will use this information as I plan for next year!  You may also want to click on the zoom recording for a more comprehensive look at the plans for Our Lady of Sorrows Youth Disciples and how your teen can get involved.  Small tweaks will be made for next fall’s program.  More details will be rolled out by September 2022.  I hope to meet you all in person then, in the meantime, feel free to call or email me to ask questions or chat about getting your teen involved in their faith community!
Another great place to get started is by filling out the teen registration button below. This will ensure you and your student hear about all of our activities via email.
Parent Info
Parents of High School Students, please listen to this zoom recording for an overview of the OLS Youth Disciples Ministry Program and how we can partner together for the good of your teen!  Feel free to just review the slide show or to listen while making dinner or doing other chores.  Approximately 30 minutes long:  it really is a comprehensive, dynamic program!
If your teen hasn’t turned in a paper registration packet (Blue or White folders distributed prior to February), please register your child or children here to join the OLS YD distribution lists and fill out all the recurring permission forms that they will need for any off-site service project, field trip, or conference.  Thank you for taking the time to do this.  It is a very important 15-20 min spent to ensure your student’s safety while in our care!
VOLUNTEERS:  Please start the process of volunteering with our youth by completing this short form and dropping me an email at hsoderquist@olsorrows.com to let me know of your interest!
