Youth Ministries

Youth Ministry Mission Statement

We provide leadership, catechesis, retreats, service opportunities, social events, and ongoing Gospel-centered formation to assist our parish teenagers to deepen their experience of their Catholic faith and to become disciples of Jesus. We welcome all teenagers into full participation in our community. We accomplish this through our guidance, encouragement, companionship, participation with and evangelization of youth, 6th grade through 12th grade.
