Teens to the Max and more...

Teens to the Max empowers teens (ages 13-17) to become authentic Marian-missionary disciples proclaiming the love of God with Mother Mary to all whom they encounter. All the teens and their mentor-leaders work together to build a vibrant community of Catholic friends who seek God in His Word, prayer, service through evangelizing projects, and in true communion as family of God.


Teen participants are welcomed to our events by a team of their peers we call “T2M Missionaries”. They offer a “good news” message based on sacred scripture and Catholic Church teaching, and guide their peers to meditate or discuss the scripture shared, with the support of adult mentors. We also have plenty of time for games, food, and opportunities to grow healthy friendships.

Location will change each month between the House of the Immaculata and a few trusted host families in the vicinity of West Covina. Location information is shared with those in our text message group through Remind app. To join the text group, send a text message to 81010 with “@teens2max” in the message body. 

At a new participant’s first event, we ask that a registration packet signed by a parent/legal guardian be submitted to the program director, Julie. This serves as permission to participate for the entire year. Due to Covid concerns, we ask all participants to please wear a mask at our events.

We have a new sister site for "on-demand" consecration preparation. This site provides the resources and information you need to make an intentional commitment to consecrate yourself to Mary. It offers insights into the life of St. Maximilian, consecration to Mary, Our Lady’s role in salvation, and our baptismal call to evangelize. While there is much to learn, our real hope is that you will be renewed in your desire to give our Lord Jesus the very best, that is, to become a saint with the care and intercession of Mary, Our Mother. All the while, the Missionaries are only a click away!
