YOUTH GROUP NEWS!  COME ON!!!! JOIN US - YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID!

The Youth Group is an organization established for and run by high school age young adults under the guidance of our parish Youth Ministers. We provide a Christian atmosphere in which members share and grow in their faith, discuss contemporary issues, share in liturgies, work on service projects, attend retreats, and participate in activities such as a haunted hayride, bowling, and hiking. 

Our Core Team, comprised of Youth Group members plan our meetings and events with our Youth Ministers. The Youth Group meets one Sunday each month for a Youth Mass at 6:00pm with the regular meeting immediately following. We have a variety of other special events during the year focusing on fellowship and community service. All Teens through high school are welcome to attend meetings at any time during the year. Check back for calendar updates!
