Youth Spirit Mission Statement

In the spirit of Mary, our Blessed Mother, the youth ministry program at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church is committed to “empowering teenagers as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today; to draw teenagers to responsible participation in life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community; and to foster the total and spiritual growth of each teenager”  (Renewing the Vision).

Youth Spirit meets weekly in small groups, with larger group activities scheduled monthly.  Please contact Meg to get connected to a small group.  Follow IC Youth Spirit on social media and Remind to stay up to date on other fun events.  


Dead Theologians Society

The Dead Theologians Society is a Catholic apostolate for high school age teens and college age young adults. Through the Saints of yesterday, the Dead Theologians Society inspires the youth of today to become the saints of tomorrow. A special charism of the Dead Theologians Society is to pray for the release of the Souls in Purgatory. Its motto is, “Dead to the World, alive in Christ!” – inspired by Romans 6:11.

DTS meets monthly.  Follow IC Youth Spirit on social media and Remind for updates on meeting times.

Steubenville Youth Conference

Steubenville is a high-energy youth conference where thousands of teens are invited to encounter Jesus Christ through dynamic speakers, engaging music, the Sacraments, small group discussions, and fellowship with other teens. The conference is an outreach of Franciscan University in partnership in our area with the St. Louis Archdiocesan Office of Youth Ministry. Conferences are held every summer across the United States, with IC attending the conference on the campus of Missouri State University in July.
