All our events and programming offer great leadership opportunities through the parish, family, and community.

Requirements for trips, retreats, and special events

Youth group at St. Robert Bellarmine Parish offers a great variety of mission trips, retreats, and special events. This includes the Winnebago/Walthill Mission Trip, seasonal retreats/camps, NCYC, and more! All these opportunities do have various requirements that need to be completed in order to participate in the experience. The requirements are listed below, along with the reasoning behind each requirement:

1) Regularly participate in youth group meetings: Youth group allows high school students to get to know each other weekly through interactive activities. When venturing on other special excursions, we want to make sure all participants on the trip have a good friendship in order to promote a great experience. 

2) Participate in youth volunteer opportunities: Throughout the year, our youth group helps with various organizations and events at the parish. It is important that the youth of the parish give back through volunteer hours to the organizations that support our youth group mission and programs. This includes, but not limited to; the Volleyball Tournament, Knights of Columbus events, Golf Committee, Ladies's Guild events, and more!

3) Be involved with major youth group fundraisers and events: Throughout the year, the youth group hosts major fundraising events. It is important to participate in various events in order to participate in the special trips and retreats that the youth group hosts. These events allow our youth group to keep costs low for mission trips, retreats, and special events. This includes, but not limited to; yard/house clean up days, Vacation Bible School, Parent's Day Out, The Box Project, Lenten Pasta Dinner, and more!

All these listed above are requirements to participate in the special trips, retreats, and events that happen in youth group. All opportunities are advertised through our monthly e-newsletter and our website under the "Get Involved" tab.

GO UNDERGROUND! 7th and 8th grade youth rally!  
Come and experience what it is like to have to hide out to practice your faith. 

Underground Church is a fun simulation (like hide and seek but more intense) that opens the door to discuss persecution of the early and current church and talk about the value of the faith that we often take for granted. Watch out for the SECRET POLICE!!
