Let no man despise your youth;
but be an example to those who believe: 
in word, in your way of life, in love,
in spirit, in faith, and in purity.

{ 1 Timothy 4:12 }

Youth Evangelization Program

The YEP is a half day from 1-8:30pm for Junior and Senior High youth (Gr. 7-12) from across our diocese to come together and grow in Christian discipleship. This program is an amazing opportunity for youth to experience their faith in an environment of fellowship and fun, not to mention the delicious food! YEPs have been happening in Saskatoon for nine years and in the words of one high school student, “This YEP has changed the way I see faith from something serious and undesirable to something which is seriously joyful and fulfilling!” 

What happens at a YEP?

It is a fun-filled day of games, inspiring talks and testimonies, small-group discussions, Musical Adoration, Mass and Confessions, and an opportunity for the youth to interact with an awesome team of young adults! Supper is provided.
