While a majority of Youth in Junior and Senior High are preparing for Confirmation, high school youth who come on Sunday nights also are able to participate in a variety of other Youth Activities such as video projects, class trips, and social outreach activities with LINK. We also have participated in Diocesan events like WorkCamp and One Act Plays as well as in other social justice activities like Group's Big Day of Serving.
Have ideas about other Youth Ministry activities? Great! We need input as well as parish participation. We are also looking for a dedicated group of adult parishioners to assist with coordinating Youth Ministry and to increase our parish activities beginning with our Sunday night group.

If you have a child who is in Grade 2 or higher and has not been baptized yet or has been baptized in a different Christian denomination, you are invited to speak to an RE Staff Member about the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) for children of catechetical age.
