Glorifying the Lord With Our Lives


Lifeteen is a high school faith formation program for Bellingham teens. The program is designed to meet the specific spiritual needs of 9th - 12th grade youth. Our goal is to lead our youth into a deeper relationship with Christ and a fuller understanding of our Catholic faith.

Lifeteen  meets from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. most Sundays on the third floor of the Assumption office building. 

Along with our weekly meetings, Lifeteen also offers regular social events, service projects, retreats, mission trips, bible studies, and opportunities to get involved with parish life!

Get Involved with the Lifeteen Program

We are always welcoming new 9th-12th grade youth to join us at Lifeteen each week. You don't have to be Catholic to participate, so bring your friends!

Junior Core Team
We welcome youth grades 10-12 to serve as Junior Core Team members! As a Junior Core member, you gain leadership experience through helping plan and lead Edge meetings and events (for middle school youth). This is an awesome opportunity for high school youth to develop leadership skills and grow in their faith through serving. Junior Core members also have special opportunities to go on leadership retreats and have social gatherings of their own to grow together as a community. To apply, contact April Waldrop.

If you are interested in helping plan and lead Lifeteen meetings and events, consider joining our Core Team! As a Core member, you would help plan Lifeteen meetings, have leadership roles during Lifeteen events, and would also have opportunities to grow in your own faith through service. Please consider sharing your gifts and talents with the youth of our parish. Contact April Waldrop if you are interested.

Part of a healthy youth program is having parents take an active role in our youth's faith formation. As a parent of a high school youth, conversations about faith and God should stem beyond our weekly Lifeteen meetings. To receive our weekly Lifeten e-mails with important information and updates, contact April Waldrop (

We also ask that families sign up to contribute dinner for the Lifeteen meetings each week. For a full list of available dates, please see the SIGN UP SHEET.
