Youth Ministry/CYO/Service

Our parish youth ministry empowers youth to embrace their Catholic faith and to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today by drawing them to responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the faith community. Through faith formation gatherings, spiritual activities, service projects, athletics and social events they develop and grow in Christian discipleship and in Christian identity. The youth ministry welcomes all parish teens (and their friends) in grades 6 through 12 who attend public, catholic, private, or home school to participate in any or all of the parish youth activities scheduled through out the year. Adult volunteers and chaperones are required to complete the requirements in compliance with the Archdiocese Policy 2010. Most youth gatherings are held in the Parish Life Youth Center.
