 Winter Blast Is Coming Fast! Register By November 15!

All students in grades 6-8 are invited to Winterblast, an all-night youth lock-in at the Maple Grove Community Center, with hundreds of youth from several area parishes! The dates are Friday, December 14, at 7:30 PM (bus leaves Saint Andrew at 7:00 PM) through Saturday, December 15, at 5:30 AM (bus returns to Saint Andrew at 6:00 AM). The cost is $65 per student and includes Mass at St. Vincent de Paul in Brooklyn Park, followed by swimming, ice skating, arcade, movies, dancing, pizza, inflatable games, hair salon, Adoration and prayer, sports, crafts and more. 

Because this is an Archdiocese event and was not on our initial Youth Ministry forms, we need parents to complete the Winterblast forms below. While you're at it (or if you think there is any chance your child may wish to participate in other Youth Ministry activities this spring or summer), consider completing the Saint Andrew forms below, as well.

Winterblast Forms
Saint Andrew Youth Ministry Forms

Youth Group

The goal of the Youth Ministry at Saint Andrew is help young people recognize their call to be authentic disciples of Jesus and to help build the Kingdom of God here and now. We strive to build relationships with and among young people and offer activities that encourage young people to meet new people, strengthen their relationship with God, live as disciples of Jesus Christ and get involved in our parish and world-wide community. We engage in worship and prayer, discuss our faith and build community through service projects that advance the Kingdom of God and fun activities that build lasting relationships.

Parents, please note: All students in grades 6-12 who want to participate in Youth Ministry events including meetings must have their parents complete the Youth Ministry Parental Consent Form and Medical Matters Form and turn them to the adult leaders in before dropping them off for the event. These forms are specific to Youth Ministry, so your Faith Formation forms do not apply. (We hope to simplify this next year.)

Middle School Youth Group

Our Middle School Youth Group is open to students in grades 6-8.

High School Youth Group

CORE Team

If you are in high school or are an adult in the parish with a heart for youth, please consider committing to our Youth Ministry CORE Team. CORE Team will be the heart and center of Youth Ministry at Saint Andrew: a group of committed disciples focused on growing in their own relationship with Jesus through prayer, formation and service, and drawing other youth to Christ and His Church.
