Youth Group

RAVE LogoReligious Adolescents Voicing Enthusiasm (RAVE) is a youth ministry founded in 1992 that focuses on the spiritual, service and social development of 8th-12th graders.

Our monthly Second Sunday is the Second Sunday of each moth, from 7-9 pm in the youth room. At this event we spend time learning about Christ and developing our relationship with him. At the same time we hear and plan upcoming events and doing something different and fun. New members are welcome at any time!

Beyond this we have many other events throughout the year. Some examples include:

  • Mass 'n Munch – Yep, we celebrate mass and then go out for a meal.
  • RAVE Retreat – Just for RAVE members, we have a weekend retreat at the "70’s house".
  • Living Stations of the Cross – Each lent we do a fantastic job for the parishioners acting out the Stations of the Cross.
  • Float Trip – Just a lazy Saturday afternoon floating down the Courtois River... until someone tips you!
  • Birthright Baby Shower – Collect items to support mothers in need.
  • Souper Bowl of Caring – Help those that are hungry by getting donations and providing them to local soup kitchens.
  • Lock-In – Join with neighboring youth ministries to swim, have mass, eat, play games, eat, play dodge ball, eat, play volleyball. . .
  • Steubenville Youth Conference – Just RAVE and 2000 of our closest friends for a weekend at Missouri State University.
  • Christmas Caroling – Spreading the love and joy of Jesus’ birth to senior citizens.

These are just some of the great things we do while growing closer to and serving the Lord. If you’d like more information you can contact the St. Bernadette rectory, look us up on Facebook or email us at raveym@juno.com.
