A Ministry of St. Patrick
THRIVE: Youth Group
THRIVE, St Patrick’s youth group, creates fun opportunities for all of our high school youth to get to know each other, and get to know their faith in a new way. Most Thrive nights consist of games, prayer, discussion, and community building. One of the best things about THRIVE is that it is made up of a variety of different young people, some who are just beginning their faith journey, some that have been committed to their faith all their life, some young people that are open and extroverted, while others are more reserved and introverted, but EVERYONE is welcome, and EVERYONE has a place in this group. There is no need to sign up ahead of time, all youth 9-12 grade are encouraged to join us anytime.

THRIVE Media Nights
Media plays an incredibly important role in all our lives! At our media nights we enjoy popular, recently released movies and discuss how the overall themes and messages of the movie apply to our faith and the truths that the story of the movie presents to us as an audience. Most Media Nights include dinner, snacks, and beverages as well as the advertised movie, all free of charge. In addition to watching the movie, we also discuss the message of the movie in a fun and interactive way and draw out both the positives and negatives, helping us to critically analyze what we are watching and what we can learn from it. As St Paul said, we have to “Hold on to what is good, and reject every kind of evil.” For schedule details, please see below.
