PACK stands for “People Aiming for Christ’s Kingdom” and is the youth ministry of Little Flower Parish.
We meet as a group every Sunday during the school year from 5:00 - 6:45PM. We also have annual opportunities to attend youth conferences, camping trips, service projects, and other social outings.
The high school group is open to all teenagers from the ninth through twelfth grades and meets every Sunday during the school year from 5:00-6:45 PM in the Parish Hall to pray, grow in our faith, and come closer as the Body of Christ.
"Our young people need to witness the authentically lived faith of adult disciples of Christ."
Dear Little Flower Parish,
My name is Chris Holcomb, and, as most of you know, I am the youth minister here at Little Flower. A member of the parish for thirty years, I would never have guessed as a child that I would be working at my beloved parish as an adult.
My goal as a youth minister is to bring the young people of Myrtle Grove closer to Christ by providing a variety of experiences for them to engage in prayer, worship, and service.
It is also very important that they have opportunities to grow closer together as a community. Some of my closest friends are those I made during my time as a child and teenager at Little Flower Parish, and I hope to give today’s youth the same opportunities for lifelong friendship and enduring faith.
High school PACK meets each Sunday during the school year. Our weekly topics are chosen by our youth planning team. Each meeting includes prayer, catechesis, and high-energy games!
Each spring, Little Flower attend the Diocesan Youth Conference and Camp Out along with hundreds of other teens from the Pensacola-Tallahassee area.
In order to help with the cost of our big trips, PACK hosts a Photos with Santa fundraiser in December and sponsors the annual Parish Breakfast with the Knights of Columbus each May.
During the summer, PACK members assist with Vacation Bible School, attend the Steubenville Conference in Atlanta, and gather for service projects and other fun activities such as bowling, water park trips, and more!
During Lent, PACK performs a passion play for the parish community and makes a pilgrimage to local churches for Eucharistic adoration on Holy Thursday
