WHAT IS ANCHOR?
Anchor is our youth ministry program at Our Lady of Light for middle school and high school teens.
By offering weekly Anchor Nights, service opportunities, social events, retreats and conferences. Anchor seeks to provide a variety of avenues through which teens can personally encounter Jesus and grow in fellowship with one another.
WHY THE NAME ANCHOR?
In celebration of being a parish served by the Oblates of Saint Francis de Sales, the name “Anchor” was inspired by the words of Saint Francis de Sales:
“Have Jesus always for your patron, His cross for a mast on which you must spread your resolutions as a sail. Your anchor shall be a profound confidence in Him and you shall sail prosperously.”
MS Anchor is for teens in grades 6-8 and is all about learning how to know and love Christ and His Church. We meet on Sunday evenings after the 5 pm Mass until 8 pm.
HS Anchor is for teens in grades 9-12 and seeks to bring teens into relationship with Jesus Christ and with community. We meet on Sunday evenings after the 5 pm Mass until 8 pm.
