Peer Ministers

High school teens at OLH gather for topical discussions, liturgical events, service events and social events. All parish teens and their friends are invited to be part of these events. We participate in events locally, at the Deanery level (Lake County), at the Chicago Archdiocese level and nationally. We follow a peer-lead model which trains teens to minister to their high school peers. Click here for more photos. 


Christ First meets Sunday nights from 7:00-9:00 PM during the academic year.

Download and print both the program request medical release to participate. Adult volunteers (especially young adults) are always needed. In order to work with the teens the “Protecting God’s Children” training is needed for all those over 21.
