How do I register my child for EDGE, Life Teen, or Confirmation?
Please visit lakecountrylifeteen.com/register and follow the instructions on the website. You will be directed to an online form.
When does everything start?
Lake Country Life Teen operates year-round. Our ministries go through seasons that coincide with the school year and summer break. All dates can be found and are most consistently updated at lakecountrylifeteen.com/events.
During the school year we run our weekly EDGE Nights, LIFE Nights, and Confirmation/LIFE Groups. These kickoff in September after St. Charles Fall Fest and run through till the beginning of May, taking brakes for the different long weekends and holidays when families tend to travel.
Confirmation season begins with registration in June. Each student (accompanied by a parent or guardian) will be required to either attend a one-on-one orientation meeting during the summer months or a large group orientation session.
Summer Trips signups being in the Fall. Fundraising runs through the year. Students are commissioned with a special blessing in June and the trips take place in June and July.
My child attends/attended Catholic School. This is for Public School teens, right?
Lake Country Life Teen is so much more than your typical Religious Ed program or CCD. It is also the perfect accompaniment to Catholic School education. Catholic education is a great thing but it flourishes when it is put into action. We find that Catholic School and Public School teens benefit from attending Lake Country Life Teen events.
Our Student Ministry provides a community for teens in a unique setting where they are challenged to critically think about what they believe outside of an academic environment. These experiences often lead to lasting friendships and deeper integration into parish life.
Can my teen bring a friend?
New faces are always welcome at Lake Country Life Teen. We do not require registration for visitors and will use the emergency contact info of the attendee if a situation arises.
If your visiting guest is not Catholic they are still very welcome. It may be good to explain some basic Catholic practices ahead of time (like being reverent in Church, etc.).
We encourage teens to invite their friends to our Connect Nights during the school year. These nights have less Catechesis and are intended to be community building, fun events for teens who are interested in experiencing an inviting community.
