Junior High Forms

High School

High School Companions

High School teens meet in a Companion Leader’s home for Faith Formation.  Groups  of 8-12 youth stay together all through high school,   This allows the groups to develop a real sense of community…extending support and encouragement to each other, all within an atmosphere of friendship and trust.

Teens share faith, fun, food: learning more about our Catholic faith as they journey through their High School years.  In a comfortable setting out of the classroom, teens can grow stronger in their faith.

High School Connection Team

The Connection Team is a group of High School Teens who go the extra mile through Peer Ministry and Leadership.  The Connection Team help plan, implement and serve in many ways in the parish through service, spiritual and social activities such as s retreat leaders.  Teens on the Connections Team help voice not only the needs of the youth, but also share their giftedness as vital members of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.

Anyone interested in more information about the Connections Team, please contact Dorothy at 630 852-3303 or email her your questions or interest at mt.carmelym@ourladyofmtcarmel.org

High School Retreat

Crossroads Retreat Weekends offer high school teens time away to reflect upon their life and relationship with God. It is also a time to build friendships within a Christian community atmosphere. Each weekend varies in theme, format, and activities and each is a great opportunity to grow closer to good and to have fun with teens your age.
