High School Youth Ministry (9th-12th Grade)


The goal of the high school youth ministry  (Grades 9th-12th) is to lead teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and his church. We meet Sunday evenings at the 4:30PM Mass and then move to the Hall until 7:30pm. Due to COVID-19, CDC and Diocesan Guidelines will be strictly enforced so that we can enjoy the privilege of meeting in person for this ministry. Masks are REQUIRED

You can become an adult volunteer at our weekly gatherings, also called Core Members. Parents of the teens, we are always adding to our list of adults who are willing to occasionally help out "behind the scenes" at special events throughout the year. All adults (Core Members or parents) interested in being involved in any ministry involving minors must complete Safe Environment Certification. Please click here to view the instructions, and contact Dawn Hurley if you have any questions. We are always accepting donations (cash/check) at the office front desk as well. When you invest in this ministry, you are investing in the leadership training and spiritual growth of our teenagers we guide them on their journey to becoming Catholic young adults. Your support in any way is truly appreciated!
