Youth Ministry

Catholic youth ministry empowers young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in the world today, draws young people to responsibly participate in the life, mission and work of the Church, and fosters the total personal and spiritual growth of each person.

The Office of Youth Ministry is committed to drawing young people, grades 6-12, into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and the mission of our Catholic faith. We accomplish this primarily by providing formation for those who minister to the teens of our diocese, equipping them to accompany our young people and create missionary disciples.

“Each young person's heart should thus be considered 'holy ground,' a bearer of the seeds of divine life, before which we much 'take off our shoes' in order to draw near and enter more deeply into the Mystery.”
Pope Francis, Christus Vivit, 67
