Youth Ministry

Our Youth Ministry Program is centered around our youth-focused, vibrant and Spirit-filled Sunday 5:00pm MassOur high school students are central to and actively involved in all aspects of this liturgy, serving as greeters and lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, singers and musicians.  Our hope is that this full, active participation in the liturgy, the source and summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed, will give our young people a lived connection to Christ Jesus and the community of the Church, and help them to grow in faith as young adults.

Youth Ministry also offers service opportunities within and outside our Collaborative, as well as social and recreational activities, to help our young people strengthen their connections to each other and to their community.
