GS24 is the high school youth group at St. Mary Magdalene. We aim to encourage an intimate, committed relationship with Jesus Christ by providing opportunities for:
- Individual and communal Prayer
- Growth in Knowledge and Understanding of the Catholic faith
- Community, through Fellowship and the establishment of Virtuous Friendships
- Service and Evangelization within the parish community and in the greater universal Church
GS24 meets on Sunday nights from 6:00- 8:00 PM in the Church Hall. Text "GS24" to 84576 to get Flocknote updates about what's going on this week, or go to this link new.flocknote.com/smarymag/GS24. Follow us on social media for pictures, videos, and invites!
Why is it called GS24?
GS24 stands for Gaudium et Spes 24, a Vatican II document, which says, "man, who is the only creature on earth which God willed for itself, cannot fully find himself except through a sincere gift of himself." This idea of learning how to give ourselves to God and to others is central in the mission of GS24. We've chosen this name as a reminder to all of us that we find our true happiness in loving and serving.
