Christus Vincit for High School Students


You're at the right place to learn about our groups - and special events - for high school students!

Welcome to Christus Vincit and Teen Chosen Bible Study!

Christus Vincit is our group for high school students.  And Teen Chosen is our high school Bible study.  We meet at Our Lady of Grace on occasional Sunday nights to talk about our faith and issues of society, to eat, and to build relationships with other Catholic high school students.  Fr. Josh Hill, Parochial Vicar for Our Lady of Grace, leads the group along with Ron Kramer, our youth minister.  Teen Chosen is led by Ron and Vanessa Kramer.  High school students from all schools and parishes are welcome.

There's no need to sign up to be a member of Christus Vincit or Teen Chosen Bible Study, and you don't have to attend every event.  Come when it fits your schedule.  If you use Instagram, follow us at @OurLadyOfGraceMinot for announcements or email us and we'll add you to our notification list.  We have a Flocknote texting group that helps keep students informed of what's happening next.  Give us your contact information and we'll add students (and parents if you wish) to the notification list.   

Here's a calendar of our events for the 2023-2024 school year.

SEARCH for Christian Maturity

SEARCH for Christian Maturity is a weekend retreat experience sponsored by the Diocese of Bismarck. The weekends are for any high school or college age person at least 15 years old. The program is both rooted in the Catholic faith and open to young people of any denomination or creed. Search weekends are held 5 times throughout the year and are held at the Badlands Ministries Camp just south of Medora, ND.  For more information, visit the Diocese of Bismarck website at this link.

Cor Christi Institute, July 2024

Cor Christi ("The Heart of Christ") invites high school students to a living encounter with Jesus and the foundational teachings and practices of the Catholic faith.  This initiative was born from the desire of a group of young priests and other dedicated believers to offer a new generation - through an intensive summer experience - the basics of the adventure of faith.  You may choose one of the two sessions, either July 8-12 or July 15-19, 2024.  Watch for more information and registration forms.

Steubenville Conference - July 2024

You won't want to miss this great summer experience!  The Steubenville Conference trip provides an exciting opportunity for youth to become better equipped and empowered to live life to the full as joyful disciples of Christ. The Conference features speakers, workshops, music, eucharistic adoration, and fellowship with other Catholic teens.  More details are coming soon.


March for Life - January 2024

Students in grades 9-12 are invited to participate in the annual March for Life.  There is also a North Dakota March for Life for people of all ages.  Details will be posted when available.
