Youth Ministry is a very important part of our parish community! Our goal is to inspire our youth to grow in their faith by joining their peers in various group activities. Although the main objective is to understand that the ” Young people to discover their worth in Christ, to draw near to and worship their living God, and to grow in love and Fraternal bonding ” as the group is full of fun filled activity, there is specific time to learn about our Catholic faith.
Youth group offers a unique opportunity to build a community of friends who share the experience of being a person of faith in our world today–the gifts and the difficulties! We’ll play together, pray together, share our thoughts and ideas. It’s a chance to put our faith into action through the relationships we build, the service we provide, and the joy we create!
We meet every second Sunday of the month after the 8:00 A.M. mass to discuss the upcoming events of the group.
