Junior High

We are relaunching our Junior High Youth Ministry to give our 7th and 8th graders (we will add 6th grade at a later date) an opportunity to to learn and live out their faith in safe, fun ways to find Catholic community through fellowship, games, and catechesis - and to ask questions about their faith and experience Jesus in a personal way.

If you are interested in having your children participate in EDGE e-mail nespors@svdpomaha.org with your name and your children’s name(s) to receive eVents eMails about EDGE opportunities.

It is most helpful if you fill out  pdf this form (109 KB) and have your child bring it the first time they come to an EDGE Night and on the nights you come, please click here to let Mr. Steve know you are coming so we can order enough food. We generally start at 6pm with a meal and finish by 8pm (see below)

New this Fall! GRACE

New this Fall, GRACE.

What if there was a group that could help a young lady realize the gift she is and the reality of who she is in the eyes of God?  SVdP would like to offer such an opportunity this fall through our Junior High Youth Group. All girls in 7th and 8th grade are invited to be part of our first seriesTrue Beauty: Living as a Confident Daughter of God.  We will meet the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, from 6pm-8pm at SVdP.  The first series began on Oct. 8, however girls are welcome to attend any week. You will experience faith-filled fellowship and encouragement on such topics as identity, beauty, the gifts of femininity, prayer, and authentic friendships. At 6:00 pm, meet for larger group fellowship and food! 6:30-8pm Small Group Study and Prayer. Facilitated by parishioners (and mothers of girls) Paula Bastian and Jenny Wiswell. Contact the Youth Ministry Office at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to let us know who will be coming. There is a wonderful resource, "Be Yourself, a Journal for Catholic Girls" that will be available for $10.00.

Costumes encouraged, but appropriate, non-gory costumes only. Today’s current culture often emphasizes evil and darkness, we will be emphasizing the Hallow (Holy) in Halloween. We will start with a meal upstairs in the St. Vincent Room at 6:00 pm and the evening concludes at 8:00 pm.
