Youth Ministry seeks to empower youth to live as disciples
of Jesus Christ in the world, encourage youth to full
participation in the life, mission, and work of Church, and
foster total personal and spiritual growth.
CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Youth are the young church of today. If
youth are absent we are all poorer for it. Youth need some of
the same things adults need from the church: opportunities for
forming community and socializing, for prayer and worship, for
ongoing faith formation, to serve, to work for peace and
justice, for leadership and for encounters with God.
Ministries: High School students who have been Confirmed are
invited to join one of the liturgical ministries: lector,
communion minister, music,
server, usher, greeter,
Retreat Team: We need high school students with a living,
active faith who are willing to be small group and peer
leaders and who are willing to train and prepare for this
Service: High School students are invited to participate with
Young Adults in St. Vinny’s Cafe ministry to the poor on the
first Saturday of the month.
Opportunities: We need high school teens to be peer leaders,
leaders to younger teens, leaders in general and recruiters.
We also need adults to act as mentors, chaperons, friends,
advocates, and to support youth and their activities in
general. Be part of the parish Youth Ministry Team. You can
make it happen.
