We welcome you to join our youth ministry! We look forward to accompanying you on your mission of deepening your relationship with Jesus. Our ministry will be here to walk alongside you (6-12 grades) through formational talks, small groups, prayer, adoration, and friendship. 

Middle School (6-8 grades)

Our Middle School youth group will meet every Wednesday night starting September 13, 2023. Our Youth Room (affectionately known as the Dawg House) opens at 6:30 pm and youth begins at 7:15 pm. We will have fun while building friendships with each other. We are learning about salvation history through a biblical lens this year. We start with the Bible Project from to kick off our discussions. 

High School (9-12 grades)

We will engage with each other through team building and competitive games. We will have engaging lessons and small group discussion. Our goal is to foster an environment that is warm and welcoming to all teens while upholding the teaching of the Catholic Church. We will deepen our prayer life through regular adoration and confession opportunities. Our high school youth will begin September 10th, 2023. We will continue to meet on Sunday evenings RE is at 6:30 and Youth is 7:30-8:45 pm.
