What is QUEST?

QUEST is a gathering together of high school teens in Leader Couples homes on Sunday evenings twice a month. QUEST is not structured classes, but it is an informal discussion group of teens who are in the same grade and belong to the same parish. There is no homework, no sermons. A typical evening would last two hours and consist of discussing a contemporary topic, allowing teens to give their views, all with a Christian over-view. Social time is included.

Who is QUEST for?

Sometimes parents and teens are mistaken that because the teen attends a Catholic high school they don’t need QUEST. WRONG! Quest is a group getting together talking about their life issues in a relaxed atmosphere with friends and their QUEST parents. Freshman, sophomores, juniors, and seniors from public and Catholic schools need QUEST. Teens will be placed in groups by their year in high school and with a friend, if they request.

QUEST Council

Each QUEST group sends representatives to QUEST Council which is the leadership group for the Quest Program responsible for planning and carrying out a variety of teen activities such as Masses, tournaments, and service projects.

Pilgrimage to Italy – July 17-29, 2019

The JMJyouth Summer Series is an exciting new event for youth and young adults! Young Catholics from around the world will make a pilgrimage to Italy during the same week in July, with options to share pilgrimages to other European destinations during the weeks before and after.

The Summer Series is built around a “core pilgrimage” to Assisi & Rome, which includes an audience with the Holy Father. The pilgrimage also features a memorable night of events created by JMJyouth for all of our pilgrims to come together to share their love of the Catholic faith.
