We are here to serve the youth of our parish, from middle school through high school! Youth Ministry offers various programs, opportunities, and experiences to support and encourage youth in their lives. Our hope is that you come to see our parish as a home. We believe in our youth: their ability to lead, to serve, to create, to be themselves, and most importantly to love God and know His love!
Our program involves three main components:
FAITH – As a Catholic Community centered on Jesus Christ and His Church, we approach faith as an ongoing relationship. We explore, learn, struggle with, ask questions about, and are challenged by our faith. We do it together, learning what it means to be truly loved by God! Youth from the community are welcome to join us just as they are.
“I believe; help my unbelief” – Mark 9:24
SOCIAL – We believe that the Good News really is GOOD and something worth celebrating! We build an inclusive community where youth can come, be themselves, and meet other youth. From nights out to games, from cotton candy making to hanging out, from events to trips, we have a good time and make the most of life.
“So I commend enjoyment, for there is nothing better for people under the sun than to eat, and drink, and enjoy themselves, for this will go with them in their toil through the days of life that God gives them under the sun.” – Ecclesiastes 8:15
SERVICE – To better grow in our relationship with God and others, we try to put our faith into action! Through various service projects and trips throughout the year, we live what it means to be Catholic and strive to make a real difference!
“So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead” – James 2:17
Everyone is always welcome!
