A Life-Changing Experience for Teens
You: Life, Love, and the Theology of the Body is a unique program that reveals to teens their value as a person: their bodies, their sexuality, and their individual call to love. Filmed on location all over the world, the program features teens as well as respected Catholic leaders. It addresses, head-on, many of the issues teens are already exposed to via entertainment media, societal pressures, and their own interactions with each other.
This exciting and dynamic program is being offered to High School teens.
This program will give teens the answers and the tools they need to successfully and safely navigate through life.
Contact Sue Bayley at 765-404-0753 for more information.

March for Life - For High School Students
January 2021 | Washington D.C.
Registration for our 2021 pilgrimage to the March for Life in Washington DC will open in the fall of 2020.
2019 Details for reference:
This year our trip leaves from St. Elizabeth Seton in Carmel on the evening of January 17. We will be attending a youth rally in the DC area and then making our way over to march. That evening will be staying in a hotel just outside of New Jersey, before we wake up on Saturday to travel to New York City and visit the 9/11 Memorial Museum. We will end our trip with the Saturday night Vigil Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral before returning to Carmel early Sunday Morning.
Cost for the trip is $235 for quad occupancy.
We are only taking two buses on this trip so space is limited. To reserve your spot we must have your waiver and deposit turned in to the office of Catechesis.
We hope you are able to join us on this powerful pilgrimage to stand up for all stages of life!
