High School

About Us

Life Teen is a dynamic Catholic high school ministry program for teens in the greater Brookfield, Elm Grove, Menomonee Falls, Pewaukee, and Wauwatosa area.

Life Teen is a community of high school teens in 9-12th grade gathering to enjoy the gift of friendship while growing in faith and virtue. It is a time to explore, share,  ask questions, and pray in a nonjudgmental environment that is safe and welcoming.

Life Teen strengthens our teens' Catholic identity while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church. All teens are welcome, there is NO FEE to attend!

We strive to provide the opportunity for young people to meet, know, love and serve Christ through our simple discipleship process. This process includes a bunch of fun and engaging Eucharistic-centered relational ministries that meet a young person's thirst for an encounter with the Person of Jesus Christ and help foster living relationship with God.

Life Teen is not an exclusive club and it's not just for Catholic Teens. Life Teen presents a variety of topics that challenge teens and provide them with the support they need. All high school students are welcome to join us!


If you're just checking this whole Jesus/God/Church thing out, LIFE TEEN Connect is the perfect place to start! Teens gather together to hang out, meet new people, play some of the most ridiculous games you've ever seen, listen to life-changing messages, get connected with caring adult leaders and begin your faith journey. Connect is open to ALL High School Students of any denomination.

Sunday Night Life Teen

Life Teen is the start of your adventure as a disciple. Teens gather together to hang out, relax, connect with peers and caring adults to discuss life, listen to a message, and worship with praise music.

Life Teen is held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month in the Marcy Center. Life Teen is open to ALL high school students of any denomination who are interested in learning more about the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Every night is different. Every night is fun. But most importantly, every night gives you the opportunity to be in an open, honest atmosphere where people will discuss the truth on REAL issues teens are wondering about today. Come, check it out and see what everyone's talking about.

Summit Small Groups

 Summit is Lectionary-based discipleship small groups that are designed to help teenagers gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for Sacred Scripture and the Holy Mass.  Summit meets twice a month (opposite weeks of Life Teen) in the St. Dominic Student Lounge to pray, discuss scripture, and walk with one another in our faith journey. Small groups are great for anyone desiring community and wishing to grow in their love for Jesus Christ and His Church. Summit is open to all high school teens.

Peer Leadership

Peer Leadership is a ministry that allows teen disciples to lead their peers and others to seek Christ, know Christ and become Christ. Teens can get involved in a number of different ministries in different capacities that fit their leadership style.

Members of Student IMPACT should be living their life as a disciple by continuing to be involved in a Summit small group. Confirmed seniors involved in either the EDGE or Life Teen Core Teams also have the ability to assist as peer leaders on our confirmation retreats.

Summer Trips

Summer Trips with Life Teen is an incredible opportunity for teens to have an awe-inspiring experience of life.  Teens are able to able to be free and confident in themselves, develop new friendships with other teens from our parish, and encounter God working in their lives. This is the summer that you begin to experience a bigger and better life than you ever thought possible.  We offer summer camp and mission trip experiences for both middle school and high school teens.

Our Core Team is literally at the core of everything we do. Our Core Team is a group of volunteer ministers who give their time and talents to accompany teens to seek Christ, know Christ, and become Christ. Very simply, a Core member's job is to share Jesus Christ with teens. Their job is relational ministry which shows teens that they are valued and loved by God.

If you feel like Core Team is something that you would like to join, please arrange a time with Erika or Andrew to grab a cup of coffee (our treat) and discuss further!



The Sacrament of Confirmation is for those who are ready to accept the responsibilities of being a disciple of Christ.  This includes creating a habit of daily prayer with scripture, frequenting the Sacraments, and leading others closer to God through your actions and words. We are currently reimagining our confirmation process and more information will be available this summer. Our new process will help you to grow in your faith and give you the tools needed to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ.  If you are at least 15-years-old and entering junior year of high school, you are invited to apply for our 2019-2020 confirmation process.
