SUMMER LIKE NEVER BEFORE
This summer at Prince of Peace Life Teen is going to be a summer like never before. We want to reveal Christ in new and radical ways. Our dream for this summer is to show teenagers that God the Father will leave the 99 to go in search for them and that He welcomes them home just as they are.
WELCOME PLACE / WHY HOST HOMES?
One way we want to show this is simply by changing the environment of our youth nights. We want to use houses to create an atmosphere of a welcome home and to show that we will meet the teens were they are at. We want to use host homes to create an easier invite to teens and to show that our parish welcomes the youth of our church so much so that we would welcome them into our home.
HOW IT WORKS
Whose house are we going to? Who will be there? What will we do? The homes we will be going to are parishioners of Prince of Peace. Alli, the youth minister, core team, and summer missionaries will all be there along with all of the teens from Life Teen. The night will look the same as other Life Nights - it will just be at a different place.
How do you know where to go? Each week we will put out the address of the upcoming Sunday’s host home. This will be announced on Sunday, text to you, emailed to you, and on social media platforms. You will receive the name, address, contact info, and a short bio of the host home.
To receive texts and emails with the addresses, text POPSOR to 84576

What if I need a ride? There will be ride sharing after mass. There will be college aged summer missionaries that will meet after mass to give rides to the host homes. They will have shirts and signs to clearly identify them.. If you are a virtus trained parent and want to help with rides please email email@example.com.
LIFE TEEN SUMMER TRIPS
See below for more information about all of our different summer trips. Click here to access a scholarship application for summer trips.
Steubenville / July 19-23 / $450:
Join over 100 teens and young adults from Prince of Peace for the biggest trip of the summer! We start our trip in Springfield, MO at the Steubenville Youth Conference. We witness amazing speakers, praise and worship, and Eucharistic Adoration. After the conference, we head to Sky Ranch camp in Oklahoma. There we have time to play paintball, horseback ride, go to the lake, and simply have time to debrief after the conference.
Summer Retreat / August 2-4 / $60:
This is a weekend in the middle of nowhere. We pitch a tent, BBQ, go on hay rides, play a lot of volleyball, and of course have talks and praise and worship. If you want time to relax, this is the trip for you!
LTLC / June 24-28 / $345:
Life Teen Leadership Conference strives to build leaders who are on mission for Jesus Christ. This conference is put on by Life Teen International and is in Atchison, KS. This is hands down one of the most impactful conferences we offer. We believe in this conference so much that we pay for half of the conference fee! Because of the limited spots for this trip we ask that each interested student fill out an application. If you are accepted, you will commit to monthly formation and planning nights. The LTLC Application is available here.
