Youth Ministry

 

Youth Ministry helps the young people of our parish come into a deeper and more personal relationship with Jesus. It endeavors to create an atmosphere where teens feel free to share their spiritual life. Many different activities are offered throughout the year, such as Weekend and Overnight Retreats, Diocesan Youth Gatherings, Community Service Projects (Servant's Heart Service Group), the Cruise to Nowhere and the Diocesan Night of Rollerskating just to name a few. 

The Youth Group is open to all teens in 8th - 12th grade. Below is a list of our upcoming events. Please come and see what the Youth Group has to offer you. We ask you to give us 3 meetings and after that we know you will have found a home. If you would like more information on the group please contact Mary Dennis our Youth Minister.
