High School Youth EXPO Faith Formation Program

Youth EXPO stands for Experiencing Christ Positively through Others. Teens are able to experience Christ in one another and through guest speakers, music, and activities. Each year, we focus on a different pillar of the Catholic Church. During the 2018-2019 year we are focusing on the Sacraments. EXPO takes place on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month from 6:00pm-7:30pm.

For more information, contact FaithFormation@StJosephCommunity.org or 651-423-4402.
