South Deanery Events
As a part of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church is a part of the Indianapolis South Deanery. All of the Youth Ministry programs at the parishes throughout the South Deanery form “South Deanery Youth Ministry.” Attending the events that the South Deanery offers is a wonderful way to have lots of fun with other youth throughout the South Deanery area.
Every month, a different parish in the South Deanery will host a “South Deanery” event for all 6th, 7th, & 8th graders of the South Deanery. These events are advertised at Holy Name of Jesus, and the youth of this parish are always invited to the events! Some of the events include ice skating, broom-ball, dances, etc. South Deanery Youth Ministry also has various events for high school students throughout the year.
March For Life – Washington D.C.
This trip is offered through the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, as well as the South Deanery. This is a pilgrimage to Washington D.C. on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. Participants attend Mass, pray, and walk in the March for Life, to stand up for the respect of all human life from conception to natural death.
Archdiocesan Homeland Mission (Grades 9 – 12)
This is a mission trip held in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis which serves those in need by making repairs and improvements throughout the Indianapolis community. This is a week of service during the summer.
Bishop Brute Days
Bishop Bruté Days is a retreat for young men, ages 13-17 who are seeking to grow closer to Christ, and who are open to the possibility of a vocation to the priesthood. The retreat will give young men the opportunity to spend three days with the Bishop Bruté college seminarians learning about prayer, service, Scripture, and the awesome gift of our Catholic faith.
These are just some of the many different spiritual opportunities offered by Holy Name & the Archdiocese.
Various service ministries & projects will be offered throughout the year by Holy Name Youth Ministry & the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.
