A new spirituality outreach is helping teens at Archbishop Carroll High School find God in both the Eucharist and in each other.

Initiated by students as a follow-up to popular Kairos retreats, the Genesis Program offers weekly sessions of prayer, worship and faith-sharing under the guidance of campus ministry director Father Michael Speziale.

The gatherings include socialization over snacks, helping students to build relationships with both God and each other.

“Genesis gives you time to think about how people have struggles, and how they are saved by their faith. You see people you think are perfect and this gives you a different perspective,” said Julia Staface, a senior. “It gives you a time to think that Jesus is really there for you when you struggle.”
