All Souls Parish values the participation of people of all ages. We strive to be a community of welcome and celebrate diversity. Our youth group is no exception. Youth serve as leaders in the congregation in a variety of ways on Sunday mornings and throughout the week. There are many ways for youth to be involved at All Souls. During the school year we meet regularly on Sunday mornings for Bibles & Breakfast from 10:10-11:10 as one group. On Sundays the Middle School Youth Group meets from 5:00 – 7:00 and the High School Youth Group meet from 6:30 – 8:30 in the youth room of the Parish House, across the parking lot from the church. Both groups share dinner together from 6:30-7:00.
Youth also participate in the life of the wider All Souls community by serving as acolytes, sacristans, working on the sound system, as Children’s Chapel Shepherds, and as members on different ministry teams such as the “Youth and Family Formation Team,” the Communications Crew, and others.
Together we explore what we believe and why. Sunday School, Youth Group and Confirmation Class are places where it is safe to question and wonder together about faith and the stuff of daily life in a community. We belong to one another and are lifted up and supported by the larger All Souls community. This is a place where we can take our masks off and be ourselves, loved and accepted for who we are. Together we become full and active members not only in our parish communities but in school, at home, and the world at large. We are living into our identities as people of faith.
