Cohort Youth Group Information and Schedule

Dear friends,

Greetings!  I am reaching out to your family and in particular to our young ones to make you aware of our parish’s participation in LIFT – Living in Faith Together Youth Group.  St. Rose of Lima Parish is part of a diocesan cohort linked with the parishes of St. Robert Bellarmine, St. Thomas Moore and St. Joseph, Millstone. The LIFT Youth Group meets at St. Robert Bellarmine, but is made up of youth, grades 8 to 12, from each of these parishes though members do not have to be parishioners to join.  New friends are welcome!

Members of LIFT meet on Sundays in St. Robert’s Parish Hall from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.  Meetings have been held in a hybrid fashion, in person and virtual.  The next meetings are scheduled for June 13th and 27th.

You may be wondering, “So, what do they do?” During this past year, the youth group, like everyone else, stayed in touch virtually and when it was safe to do so, they helped with receiving and organizing donated food items brought to St. Robert Bellarmine for the food insecure.  This food was distributed through various organizations working together through the Freehold Food Safety Network. Members of the youth group also sorted and packed toiletry bags for the poor and homeless.  The bags were distributed in various places throughout New Jersey by volunteers working with the Blessing Bag Brigade. Some very impressive work indeed!

The LIFT Group is led by Ms. Jeanne Marinello.  She can be reached via email at   You may also contact me for more information by calling 732-462-7828 or via email at

Summer blessings,

Karen Powell
