Youth Ministries

Boy Scouts is open to boys from the parish or the area. The scouts are encouraged to serve both the community and the parish. Catholic Boy Scouts in grades six through nine can earn the Ad Altare Dei Award; older scouts may earn the vocation-oriented Pius XII award. Any boy who has earned Arrow of Light in Cub Scouts or who has finished fifth grade is invited to join Troop 485. Adult leaders are also welcome to join.

This is our middle school youth group for students in grades 5-8 from the Religious Education Program, the Religious Education Home School Option and St. Aloysius school. F.I.A.T. is a youth-led group that determines three or four service projects and then implements the projects throughout the year. More information is on the F.I.A.T. page.
This is our high school youth group that gathers weekly, typically following the Religious Education program calendar, on Wednesday evenings from 6:45-8:30 p.m. in Clare Hall. All youth in grades 9-12 from both public and parochial schools in Bowling Green, Eastwood, Elmwood, Otsego and other surrounding area schools are welcome to join us for activities. Those activities include spiritual nights, lesson nights, service nights and the ever-popular Open Gym nights. More information on the EPIC page.
Other spiritual growth opportunities are available for high school youth and are sponsored by the Diocese of Toledo, Foundation for Life, and the Catholic Youth Organization. Some of these include Teens Encounter Christ (TEC) Retreat, Youth Elect Service (YES) Project, XLT: music and praise nights, and the annual Steubenville Youth Conference. More information about the current opportunities for our high school students in these outside activities is found here.
