Youth Ministry

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. 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 (kmartin@sfcabrini.org) or call him at 669-245-5502

Youth Mass A New Monthly Service

Youth Ministry hosts a first youth-oriented Mass the last Sunday each month at 5:30 PM. This is a new monthly event and will be filled with contemporary music and a message that relates directly to teens.
 
Youth Ministry needs Teen Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, musicians and singers. If you are interested in helping out with this mass please contact Youth Minister Kurt Martin at kmartin@sfcabrini.org.
 
Following Mass, the Youth Ministry will meet from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM and welcomes all 9th – 12th graders to attend. Youth Ministry nights are held in the parish center after Mass and dinner will be provided.
