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 made up of 7th-12th graders) and helping at parish events such as "Breakfast with Santa", Christmas Tree Lighting, Vacation Bible School 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.
Follow us on Facebook@St. Mary's Youth Group <3, Instagram @ stmyouthgroup_, Parish Website @ Parish of St.Mary. Friend us on the Parish App under the group Youth Ministry.

Because of COVID being on the rise and because we respect life, moving forward the Youth Group meetings will be held virtually via Zoom. That being said for the next 3 meetings we will be doing a community service project for Catholic Charities. We will be putting together little gift bags for their Meals on Wheels Program. We will only have 8 teens attend these meetings  and you must sign up as to which meeting you’d like to help out at. As always when you arrive you will sign in, your temperature will be checked, you will wear your face mask and you will be wearing gloves that will be provide. As always safety is our number one priority so if you are not feeling well, or have been exposed to the virus or there is an out break at your school please do not attend the service event you signed up for and just let us know so we can get someone else to fill your spot. We will gather in the Hall from 7:00 PM-8:30 PM. Below are the dates please sign up by email to our Youth Minister Mary Dennis at mdennis@parishofstmary.org  for which day(s) you would like to help at and Mary will contact you to confirm your assigned date. If you would like to attend the Youth Group meetings virtually after the New Year please email Mary for the Zoom meeting information.
