“It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your hearts your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle.” - St. John Paul II, World Youth Day 2000.
Calling All High School Youth!
The Youth Ministry Program seeks to foster an interactive community of high school students with their Catholic faith as the center. Our teens will be taught how to live as disciples in very challenging times and to apply Catholic values to daily life, igniting within their hearts a passion for the Lord and His Church that will inspire them to respond in faith. Our mission is to help our teens develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ by encountering Him personally through the sacraments and through our brothers and sisters in need, by hearing His word and learning more about Him through prayer and study, and by fostering fellowship among our high school parishioners.
We really do have something for everybody here no matter where they are in their faith journey. Our events are always full of fun, food, friends, and of course faith, and throughout the course of the year there will be plenty of opportunities for teens to learn about and grow in their faith, relax in a comfortable environment, and offer service in the local community. There will also be opportunities for us to go off campus to have some fun as well as for us to connect with other high school students and experience our faith in different ways!
We are a “come as you are” community, and so we invite you to come out to as many of our events as possible! Friendships are formed and strengthened here as we grow together as followers of Christ, and so friends are always welcome at our events, whether or not they are members of our parish (or even Catholic!). We are ready to journey with you, so check us out and experience this for yourself!
