Ministry: Youth Ministry

Youth MinistrySt. Paul’s youth ministry consists of students in grades 6-12. The ministry focuses on engaging our parish youth in activities which include social/recreational events, Christian youth retreats, special Masses, fundraising, community outreach, and more. These activities are planned with the youth taking interactive roles to ensure that they are continuously exposed to the challenges and fulfillment of Christian life.  Any and all faith-filled adults with a love for God and a sincere interest in youth are welcome to provide guidance and hands-on involvement in scheduled activities.  Compliance with Diocesan Safe Environment Regulations is required.

Time commitment: Attendance at 12 activities a year, plus planning meetings as needed.
