CTEC High School Ministry


Our ministry was coined 'Dual Saints' because it was comprisemainly of teens from Saint Lawrence and Saint Mary Cathedral. 

Our ministry has grown to welcome teens from all over the Greater Lafayette area, so we have changed our name to:


Catholic Teens Encountering Christ

(But don't be surprised if you still hear or see 'Dual Saints'!)
