Who We Are & What We’re About
Life teen is a tri-parish youth ministry program comprised of St. Thomas More Newman Center, Sacred Heart and Our Lady of Lourdes parishes.  The main components of our program are spiritual formation, Catholic catechesis, community and discipleship.  It’s fun to learn about your faith with your friends, and our hope is that every Life Night is not only fun, but also challenges you to go deeper in your relationship with God and to know more about your Catholic faith.  CoMo Life teen is a tri-parish community dedicated to serving high school students in Columbia, MO.  The Life Teen core Team strives to build a community of faith, love and friendship for each one of our students at every Life Night and Life Teen event.

We also participate in a number of yearly events, camps, and retreats.  The Luke 18 retreat is put on by our high school students for the 8th grade retreaters.  Our summer opportunities include Steubenville Mid-America, Camp Siena, Camp Maccabee and CHRISTpower.

Nun Run Nunrun

No…it is not a race against nuns (although that would be fun!). The Nun Run is quickly becoming a staple event for young women interested in learning about women’s religious life.  Participants will visit 6 different women’s religious communities over the course of 2 days throughout the Mid-Missouri and greater St. Louis area.  The dates are July 17th and 18th.  Please contact Jose Lopez, Events Coordinator, at or 573-635-9127 x221 for more information.
