The purpose of Sacred Heart's Youth and Young Adult Ministry is to build up strong disciples of Jesus Christ and His Church. We do this through prayer, fellowship, and service.

Archdiocesan Youth Day

High school youth are invited to celebrate their Catholic faith with Bishop Cozzens, hundreds of other teens, and some of the best Catholic speakers in the world at Archdiocesan Youth Day (AYD). AYD is like an annual, local version of World Youth Day. It's held at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium in St. Paul.


Winterblast is an all night lock in for middle school youth. It starts with mass and adoration at St. Vincent de Paul in Brooklyn Park, then the rest of the night is spent at the Maple Grove Community Center. The rest of the night features swimming, two ice skating rinks, a hair salon, face painting, food, hundreds of other teens, Confession, Adoration, and so much more!

Extreme Faith Camp

Extreme Faith Camp (EFC) is an amazing Catholic summer camp for everyone grades 6th - 8th. It's a week long camp held in northern Minnesota where teens have the opportunity to dive deep into their relationship with Jesus Christ. Join hundreds of other teens from 4 other parishes in the Archdiocese for an absolute blast. With everything from the Sacraments to zip lining to great small groups lead by high school teens, EFC is the best week all summer!
