“theIntersection” Crew Retreat
The Crew Retreat is for all who are interested in being on theIntersection Crew for our 2019-2020 school year for St. Nicholas and St. William Catholic Parish. It is open to all those currently in 7th grade to 11th grade.
This will be a time for the teens to learn more about Crew, hear how we work as a team, understand how we build and grow our faith to share with others and the responsibilities of being on Crew. This is a required retreat for Crew.
This retreat will start with the 5 pm mass at St. William on Sunday, May 26. We will then meet in the Sr. E Teen Center at St. William and sleep in this room, the office upstairs and/or the hall as needed based on numbers. The retreat will end on Monday at 5 pm.
Interested teens will need to fill out this form to go to the retreat.

“theIntersection” Teen Program (Grades 8th – 12th) 2018-2019
“theIntersection” is a youth led program, facilitated by a youth minister, that provides a safe place where young people can explore their faith, ask questions and develop a community of Catholic friends. Everyone is welcome! The program leads teens into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through large group sessions, small group sessions, prayer, retreats and service.
The Youth Mass is celebrated on Sunday evenings at 5:00 pm at St. William Church. Our Teens are invited to serve as Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Greeters, as well as participating in our Youth Choir and Band.
Following the Mass, the Teens meet in the Teen Center at 6pm for a communal meal which is provided each week by parents. All 8th through 12th grade students are welcome to join us Sunday nights from 6:00pm to 8:30pm in the teen center at St. William.

December 23 is a special added night for theIntersection and Edge to join together and celebrate Christmas. This night will include a potluck and a White Elephant gift exchange. Bring a wrapped gift that is no more than $10 if purchased. These are to be amusing, impractical gifts are exchanged during festivities. Usually, the goal of a white elephant gift exchange is to entertain party-goers rather than to gain a genuinely valuable or highly sought-after item.
