The Cathedral Teens started in February of 2013. Since then, we have had several meeting in the church hall where the teens got to know each other.
All our meetings had ice breakers, dinner and topics of discussions; along with some fun too. We recessed for the summer months of 2013, and started again in September 2013. Taking a break for Christmas, we are meeting again until May 18th of 2014. Our meetings are every other Sunday starting at 5:00 pm. The last Sunday of the month, is a Teen Mass at 5:00 pm followed by a teen meet. Please see our calendar page for more details.
During the fall months of 2013, the group voted to put their faith into action. The Cathedral Teens are now participating at Mass, the last Sunday of every month. They are learning more about their faith, and have decided to help children right here in Norwich.
This year, the teens had a pancake breakfast, a bake sale and participated at the annual Church Bazaar making handmade items to sell. With the proceeds that were raised, the teens helped four families at Thanksgiving and Christmas. They also went shopping for toys and wrapped gifts for children from four different families in need. Please see our meetings page for additional details and pictures.
The teens are now in process of collecting either gently used or brand new toys for children in need. The intent and goal of this project is to help a child who may have had to leave everything they own behind because of a tragic situation. This is a year round project, and not only during the Christmas season.
Our goal through fund raising, is to be 100% self-sufficient, and contribute to the community in need with faith-in-action projects.
In addition, we want to provide an option for the confirmed teen to grow deeper in their faith.
To learn more about who we are and what we are doing, we encourage you to attend a meeting. If you or someone you know would like to become a member, please use our sign up page here in this website.
