Faith u USE
Saint Alphonsus Parish is grateful to have a coordinator, Suzie Devlin, for our parish teen ministry. Suzie is active in the parish Family Faith group, was past president of the Home and School Board and serves as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion. We are very blessed to have Suzie leading our youth into the next phase of their spiritual growth. The parish is committed to this program and offers it’s full support. Please encourage your children to give FUSE a chance and join the teen ministry.
FUSE Mission Statement
FUSE is a parish youth group that helps teens stay connected to their faith through fellowship, friendship and service to others.
Plan adult supervised events for teens in grades 7-12 that provide service opportunities that lead to fellowship and spiritual growth.
Both social and service-oriented gatherings are held on parish grounds and outside venues. Some examples include: hosting donut sales or pancake breakfasts for charity, organizing the Giving Tree program at Christmas for Our Lady of Hope parish, cooking meals at the Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, preparing dinners for Aid for Friends, assisting with the Parish Christmas Bazaar, assembling Easter baskets for Ambler Community Cupboard and coordinating a diaper drive for the Philadelphia Diaper Bank. There are also 5 teen masses yearly on Sunday evenings at 5pm that the teens handle the music, readings, offertory and collections in addition to leading a teen-based Lenten stations of the cross.
