Life Teen St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Johannesburg.

We’re all about leading teens closer to Christ: introducing them to Him in an authentic way, and just letting them fall in love with Him. That’s why the life night always follows the celebration of the Eucharist.

We cover the Catechism of the Catholic Church in a 4 year cycle as well as dealing with various issues they face in the world. This is done to prepare them to make their Confirmation in the knowledge of Who it is that they’re being Confirmed into: the Mystical Body of Christ, His Church on earth.

While Life Teen is the preparation programme for the sacrament of Confirmation in our parish, it’s not an exclusive club. If you’re in high school and have friends that come and want to check it out for yourself, or if you just want to find out more about the Catholic faith, then come along. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’ve come from or what you’ve done, you’ll be welcome at our nights.
