What is Life Teen?
Life Teen is a youth ministry geared exclusively towards teenagers, in their journey for Christ and His heart. This ministry strengthens their faith like no other, as they dive deep into Catholicism and its truth. Life Teen includes a Mass in which teens can particularly get involved with, along with a lesson and games to wrap up the night. Camaraderie is key in getting to know not only one another, but our Lord as well. Let’s get each other to heaven in this life, and let’s get started with our teenagers. Welcome to Life Teen!
Bridget Scott is thrilled to be involved with St Francis' LifeTeen program! A lifelong musician, Bridget has been a Music teacher for the past few years at a Catholic grade school in Providence, RI, where she also taught Confirmation classes. She just returned to her home state of CT this summer to continue her education. Bridget is thankful for the Crossroads 4 Christ community that introduced her to the lovely parish of St Francis. In her free time, Bridget enjoys playing tennis, collecting random instruments, and laughing a bit too loud.
Marissa Jedziniak is from East Hampton, CT and she is currently a Sophomore at Central Connecticut State University. She is a music education major with a concentration in French horn and is also a part of the honors program. In her free time, she likes to play volleyball and tennis as well as run. She got involved with Life Teen because she participated in it when she was a teen and wanted to help other teens become closer to their faith. She hopes that all teens who join Life Teen will be able to grow closer to God and have a community that they can go to and be a part of.
