Welcome to HYPE!
HYPE is a program through which the middle school youth of St. Nicholas Parish can connect with each other and with Jesus! Through community, social events, service projects, prayer events, calling each other to greater living, and more, HYPE is a program that aims to strengthen fellowship and faith in the youth of St. Nicholas and lead them toward sainthood.
Looking for Adult Volunteers
The youth minister can't do the job all on his own! He needs the grace of God. Often though, God graces a person with help through other people. If you feel God is calling you to be an adult volunteer for the youth of HYPE and/or 3:6Teen, please fill out the form below to assist in the mission of bringing youth closer to Christ.
Young Examples of Saintly Living
You are never too young to start living as a saint! Holiness is not dependent on age. Read up here on different people who lived lives that, though short, were full of love and imitation of Jesus. They show how, in any life circumstance, we can choose to give ourselves to Christ and others. These persons include someone who used his computer knowledge to tell people about Jesus (Blessed Carlo Acutis), an adventurous and politically involved young man (Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati), a boy graced with immense courage (St. Jose Sanchez del Rio), and a woman who lived a saintly life in her seemingly simple life (St. Therese of Lisieux).
