What is Lifeline? Lifeline is an evening program held on the first Saturday of each month at the NET Center in St. Paul gathering hundreds of youth from around the Archdiocese. Each evening includes great music, a vibrantly celebrated Mass, and a dynamic presentation from a popular Catholic speaker. Join the Church of St. Henry as we travel together (either by bus or carpool) to this amazing event! We meet here at St. Henry at 2:45pm and return by 11pm.  To reserve your spot, you must turn in a completed permission form and $10 (plus ticket cost, if required) to Jenna Leighton no later than the Wednesday before the Lifeline.
