High Schoolers are at a crossroads in their faith. So much is being asked of them in school and extracurriculars, that sometimes going to Mass and receiving the Sacraments becomes secondary or even seem as one more thing they have to do. Youth Ministry seeks to revitalize their faith in God and His Church by leading teens into a personal relationship with Christ. Everything we do is centered on the Eucharist- the source and summit of our faith.
Youth Ministry gives high schoolers a place to ask the difficult questions about the faith and their lives. We give them answers rooted in Scripture and Tradition. High Schoolers are fighting spiritual battles most of us never dreamed of let alone experienced ourselves, and our goal is to give them all they need to win.
We meet every Sunday after the 6:00 p.m. Mass from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall.

The Core Team is a team of committed members of the Church who have chosen to volunteer their time and talents (and even treasures) to minister to the high school teens. Each Core member is trained in basic youth ministry skills, from facilitating small groups to public speaking to leading prayer sessions. Above all, they are committed to forming relationships with the youth and being a strong witness of the Catholic faith.
