Picture12 is a youth group for high school students. Our youth group meets most Sundays in the Community Center at St. Anastasia. We meet from 6-8pm for Sunday Funday and Dinner night on the first and last Sunday of the month. On the second and third Sunday we meet from 6-7:30pm for our Lesson nights. We play games, shoot hoops, play ping pong, eat, and hang out with each other.

Most importantly, we learn about how to apply the teachings of Jesus Christ to our daily lives through exploration of the scriptures including; small group discussions, reflection, prayer and testimonies.

Our vision at St. Anastasia is to integrate youth into the life of the parish, encouraging participation and interaction in the Mass and other parish events. To develop the belief that each member of the parish has a responsibility to minister to the youth through their interactions with them and to create a Catholic-Christian atmosphere in which the youth can enjoy fellowship, faith growth, and a love of Jesus Christ.
