Make a Difference with Service, Smiles and Sometimes Silliness!
Youth Group members serve coffee and donuts after Mass on the second Sunday of each month. Arrive early (around 9:30 am) to help set up, then go to the social hall after communion to serve coffee and help clean up!
Youth Mass is first Sunday of the month! There are so many opportunities to serve: lead the rosary before Mass; be a lector, singer, usher or altar server; bring up the gifts; be a junior leader and help with the Storybook Sunday kids; or hand out bulletins after Mass.
Our two landmark Children’s Ministry camps: ADVENTure Camp and Jesus Day Camp are so much fun for the kids and the teens. Serve the next generation by being a Junior Leader. Lead games, perform skits, assist kids with crafts and help create a fun and joyful environment.
Always a Youth Group favorite (and a favorite of the entire parish) is Shadow Stations! Lots of ways to participate: costuming, acting, reading, sound effects, backstage crew, tech crew, set up and clean up. This is a powerful encounter with Jesus as he makes the ultimate sacrifice for all of us.
Even More Opportunities Outside of Youth Group
You were given the Holy Spirit in baptism and now you have the opportunity to seal that gift in a profound way through the sacrament of confirmation.
Faith is an adventure. And faith is hard. God never calls us to live a small life. But it takes courage to live the big life God has in mind for you. FAITH BUILDERS will help you grow in spiritual strength so you can handle whatever the world throws at you. First session begins October 2023! Tap to learn more or register today!
For those youth that enjoy art and creativity, join our Creative Team. Paint banners and posters, decorate bulletin boards, create crafts and so much more!
Shadow Stations of the Cross
During Lent, our youth brought the powerful scenes from the Stations of the Cross to life in an unforgettable experience for our congregation. On the journey they explored artistic talents, learned new skills and were part of a truly special event that included costuming, acting, reading, sound effects and stage lighting.
