Two Parishes - One Faith

Youth Ministry

Our Vision

We are dedicated to cultivating an environment where youth can encounter Christ and grow in understanding of their true identities as sons and daughters of God, going forth in the modern world to live authentic lives as Catholic disciples.

Encounter — Awaken & Empower — Lead



Youth Ministry Leadership Teams:

Youth Core Team

Our Youth Core Team is a great way to grow closer in your relationship with Jesus and your friends, as well as striving to become peer leaders in the parish community! Core Team members are expected to be role models for their peers and other youth, in and outside of the parish. This includes striving to become disciple of Christ through investing in prayer outside of our weekly meetings, helping to form accepting and dependable community for our team, and stepping outside of your comfort zone.

Adult Core Team

Our Adult Core Team are role models and leaders in the faith. These team members continue to live our  Catholic values – be open to the Holy Spirit regarding how He is calling us to serve our youth. This includes meeting monthly to discuss how past events have gone and what future events are coming up. Adult Core Team members assist the Faith Formation   Coordinator and Youth Ministry intern preparing for youth events, promoting, finding chaperones, providing food and supplies, etc.
