Youth Ministry

Helping our Youth Create a Closer

Relationship with their Peers and God!

Our Youth Ministry aims to help the youth of our parish form strong relationships with their friends, in safe, God-centered environments. Our Youth Ministry is not solely for educating our youth. Without strong relationships, the youth of our parish will not flourish. We aim to help them find Catholic friends, form relationships and strengthen their beliefs with these relationships.


The Youth Ministry is under the direction of Mary Gardner. Mrs. Gardner leads the YAC (Youth Advisory Council), made up of our parish youth leaders, in preparing events for the youth of our parish. 


The Youth Ministry's largest outreach is its Wednesday Night Youth Group for youth in grades 6th-12th! Our Youth Group is divided into two divisions, Jr. High (grades 6-8) and Sr. High (grades 9-12). Youth group starts with Mass, then a free supper, and activities to follow. Wednesday Night Youth Group starts at 6:00 pm and ends at 8:00 pm. NOT BEING HELD RIGHT NOW! Youth members are welcome to bring a friend, even if they are not Catholic! Parent volunteers are always welcome, to help cook meals.


To find out more information, or to sign up to cook a meal, please contact our Youth Ministries Director, Mary Gardner by calling the church office!
