High School Youth Ministry

The opportunity for this age group is to discuss areas of importance to them and seek a deeper understanding of their role as Disciples of Christ.  They meet in a less structured setting, on Wednesday evenings 7:15-8:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall; with guest speakers on various topics, and we encourage our youth to be involved through church-sponsored community service projects.  We schedule fundraising activities to support these projects by selling poinsettias in Advent for Christmas and Easter lilies on Palm Sunday for the Easter season. We schedule Game Nights and involvement with other community service agencies.  For further information, you may contact  Religious Education Director, Lori Humenik whose email address is: lhumenik@holycrossverobeach.org


Kiwanis Service Saturdays

Due to COVID-19 the Holy Cross High School Youth Group will not be starting sessions, it is our hope and prayers to resume after the Christmas break, January of 2021.  However, in the meantime there are two opportunities to gather, serve and pray. 

The Kiwanis Service Saturdays have scheduled two mornings to be able to Love it, Share it & Live it;  October 10th and December 12th.  All of the Holy Cross high school teens who wish to be a part of this will be assigned to a service project from 8:00 am- 1:00 pm, under the direction of Mrs. Diane Jellie and Mr. Richard Schlitt.  The service project will be here in Indian River County, the site will be disclosed at a later date.  You will arrive at the site by 8:00 am finish work at Noon, lunch will be served from Noon to 1:00 p.m. this will be a time to eat and share with others involved with the project. High School teens will be dismissed at 1:00 pm and picked up at the service site (in the past St. Helen’s would be the arrival and dismissal unfortunately due to COVID-19 we are unable to transport the high school teens to and from the service sites.)

There are no costs involved but a release from must be turned into either Mrs. Diane Jellie, Mr. Richard Schlitt (321-6442), or Mrs. Lori Humenik, at the Parish Office.  The release form is available on the website at www.holycrossverobeach.org.
