Youth Group Dinners

We need help providing for a crucial part of our Youth Ministry…FOOD! When the HS and 7/8 groups get together, it's a hungry bunch and pizza is needed!! On nights when only the HS group meets, we still need dinner provided for roughly 40 teens! To save the Youth Ministry budget for programming needs, we are looking for donations as well as help ordering/delivering and serving/clean up. 

You can sign up to help with a youth group dinner at:

Core Team

Join the Core Team! We are looking for core team mentors to walk with the youth of our Parish, as they explore their faith and grow in discipleship. If you are in love with Christ and His Church, and feel called to serve our youth, I ask you to prayerfully consider joining one of our youth group core teams. Please contact Melissa Capella If you or someone you know would be a good fit for this ministry!

Youth Involvement for 5:30 pm Mass needed

Get involved with Liturgical Ministries as an Euchaistic Minister, Lector, Usher, Mass Coordinator or Cantor! If  you're an 8th grader or current hgh school student and would like to be a part of the youth-led 5:30 pm Mass then choose a ministry and contact one of our teen Mass Coordinators to receive more information including training opportunities and answers to any of your questions.
