Each summer the Deanery, known now as Catalyst Catholic, hosts a Middle School event every Tuesday in June, 8am-5pm. It is open to rising 6th graders through outgoing 8th graders.
Each day begins at Holy Family. As a parish group, middle school youth will go out into the community to serve others. Service opportunities include working in food pantries and soup kitchens, assisting the elderly with yard work and housework, simple building and painting projects and more! Be sure to wear old clothes and closed-toed shoes. (Sandals are not allowed.) Don’t forget to bring a water bottle and a sack lunch! We will be working up a sweat!
Then, in the afternoon, all deanery parishes gather together for a social event sure to make your summer fun! This year we will be gathering at:
- June 2: Opening Mass and Field Day (Mt. St. Francis, IN)
- June 9: Activate Games (Louisville, KY)
- June 16: Art Camp (St. Anthony Parish / Clarksville, IN)
- June 23: Jeffersonville Aquatic Center (Jeffersonville, IN)
- June 30: Malibu Jack’s Amusement Center (Louisville, KY)
This is a fun opportunity for all that participate! Check out this video of youth that have participated in the past as they talk about their experience!
Each day will cost $25. This includes each day’s activity and a shirt!

Payment will be accepted but will not be deposited until an official decision has been made about the continuation of this event, due to COVID-19. As with all activities in the coming months, we are hopeful that they can happen but will be working with local authorities and the Archdiocese to ensure safety for all. A final decision will be made by May 15.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
