High School Youth Group




Erin Holt is excited to be the new High School Youth Minister! She was born and raised in Pelham, and grew up attending Our Lady of Sorrows with her parents, brother, and extended family. She has a bucket list for all occasions, and recently accomplished the biggest item on the list: she finally rode the superman rollercoaster at Six Flags! She attended Auburn University and was a member of the Auburn University Marching Band for two years, and a member of Core Team with youth ministry for three years. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Social Work. After receiving a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Alabama in 2015, she had the opportunity to move to Washington, DC, to complete an internship at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. She loves a good adventure, and believes that no road trip is complete without an adequate supply of snacks and sing-alongs.

She has been active with youth ministry as a volunteer since August 2011, and has traveled to Georgia, Washington DC, Louisiana, Mobile, and Florida with groups of teens from Birmingham and Auburn in tow. She has been volunteering with OLS since Fall 2015, and is very excited to begin serving here at OLV.

 We have an exciting semester planned with weekly meetings on Sunday nights and Bible studies and Mass on Wednesdays! Erin said, “I want your teens to feel welcome here, and to have a place where everyone belongs. If you are interested in joining me on leading the teens of OLV closer to Christ, please call, email, snail mail, or send a carrier pigeon my way!” 






LifeTeen is the Youth Ministry program for 9-12th graders at OLV Parish.


We meet in the Youth Room in the Gym from 6 pm to 8 pm. Dinner will be provided. Parent Support is needed.
