What is Youth Ministry?
Youth ministry is a group for high school teens and their friends to come for fellowship and to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. A Middle School Group for 6th, 7th and 8th Graders also gathers regularly. Our goal is to empower the youth of our parish to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today. We do this through social events, retreats, small groups and youth nights. We will meet after the 5:30 mass on Sunday nights in the youth center (also known as Kelley Hall) from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM. Dinner is always provided! Questions? Email our youth minister Kurt Martin (email@example.com) or call him at 669-245-5502
