Life Teen is a spiritual, educational, and social experience to help teens in grades 9-12 to grow closer to Christ. Our Sunday night program begins with Mass at 5:00 pm and continues with Life Nights which start at 6:15 in the Multi-Purpose Room. Each semester our Life Night focus on a topic and gather for discussion, games and prayer centered on the night’s focus. Each Sunday night Life Night closes with dinner and students are ready to be picked up at 7:45 pm.
Service opportunities or social activities to build up the Body of Christ in our community at large as well as among our youth group members.
Each year during either spring break or fall break both Edge and Life Teen together participate in a day long Urban Plunge experiencing the 7 Corporal Works of Mercy in one day in Nashville. Students take the bus from Hermitage to Downtown Nashville to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, shelter the homeless, clothe the naked, visit the sick, visit the imprisoned and bury the dead. Our Urban Plunge takes us a prison for youth, a clothing closet, encounters with persons experiencing homelessness in Nashville at the Room in the Inn main campus as well as in public locations. We visit Calvary Cemetery to learn about this historic Catholic site in Nashville and to pray for the dead. We end our day at McKendree Health Care Center to visit the men and women who live in the memory unit.
Each summer in early June we take students entering 8th – 12th grade to Life Teen’s main summer camp Covecrest in Tiger, GA.
