Inspiration: Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
Three interdependent and equally important goals guide the Church’s ministry with adolescents. These goals state what it means for the Catholic community to respond to young people’s needs and involve young people in sharing their unique gifts with the larger community. They express the Church’s focus for ministry with adolescents while encouraging local creativity in developing the programs, activities, and strategies to reach these goals.
Goal 1: To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
Goal 2: To draw young people to responsible participation in the Catholic faith community’s life, mission, and work.
Goal 3: To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
Our Mission: To nurture youth spiritually and emotionally in their Catholic faith through FUN, safe, and faith-based fellowship.
Enrollment is open to all parish teens grades 9th – 12th; new members are always welcome.
