What is Youth Ministry all about?

As a baptized member of the Church, Jesus Christ calls you to follow in his footsteps and make a difference in the world today. You can make a difference! . . . In the words of the Holy Father: “Offer your youthful energies and your talents to building a civilization of Christian love . . . commit yourself to the struggle for justice, solidarity, and peace.” (Pope St. John Paul II, Homily at World Youth Day, Denver, 1993).

It’s about forming friendships that can last a lifetime.

It’s about serving those who are less fortunate than we are.

It’s about showing Christ’s love to a hurting world.

And it’s about having FUN together!
