Middle School Youth Group
Middle School Youth Group meets from 6pm to 7:15pm on Wednesdays (during RE) in the youth room. We are going to be growing in our relationships with the Lord and each other through games, leisure, talks, time for prayer and small group Bible studies. The focus this year will be on how to practically live your faith in the world through exploring how Catholic social teaching and the beatitudes apply to your life and experiencing authentic Christian friendship. If you are a Middle School Student in grades 6-8 we would love to have you join us!

Meet Our Youth Staff

Liz Lutrell, Director of Youth Evangelization & Discipleship
 
Hi! My name is Liz Luttrell and I am so excited to serve as the new Director of Youth Evangelization and Discipleship at Our Lady of the Valley! Ever since I encountered Christ in the Eucharist and authentic community in my high school youth group, I have been passionate about youth ministry and walking with teens in their faith. This passion has led me to volunteer in both middle and high school youth ministry for the last 8 years. I am also currently completing my second summer as a Totus Tuus teacher for the Archdiocese of Denver. I grew up in the Fort Collins area and loved it so much that I decided to go to CSU, where I will be completing my degree in Human Development and Family Studies and Business Administration this coming summer (Go Rams!!!). I love being loud, sharing stories of life around a campfire, seeing how God’s light shines in the dark places of life, slacklining, summiting 14ers, spending time with Jesus in adoration, live music, and anything with cheese. As I begin this new adventure, God has really touched me with this, from Pope Francis’s Apostolic Exhortation on the Call to Holiness in the ModernWorld:
“Do not be afraid of holiness. It will take away none of your energy, vitality or joy. On the contrary, you will become what the Father had in mind when he created you, and you will become faithful to your deepest self.”
This is my vision for youth ministry at OLV. I can’t wait to meet all of you and embark on the crazy adventure of faith together.
Hannah Powers, Assist. Director of Youth Evangelization & Discipleship
 
Hannah Powers is excited to be at OLV! She recently graduated from CSU (go Rams!) and is currently planning on going to medical school. A fun fact about her is that she collects comic books, and LOVES talking about Marvel movies!

Chaperons are needed to be able to do these activities.  If you are interested in Chaperoning a youth event, you do need to have the Safe Environment training offered through the diocese.  Please contact Liz Lutrell to learn more about the training sessions available for you at our parish.
