St. Mary’s Youth Ministry

FOLLOW THE LIGHT!

 

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” 

~John 8:12

 The St. Mary’s youth program is a community of students, growing together in faith.  We offer opportunities for fellowship, catechesis, bible studies, and service projects.

The middle school youth program is open to any student in the 6th through 8th grades.

The high school youth program is open to any student in the 9th through 12th grades.

We will offer programs during the week, as well as special events throughout the school year.  Come twice a week, come twice a month, or come as you feel called.  Regardless of how much or how little you attend, we will be here with open arms and joyous hearts.

  “Darkness can only be scattered by light, hatred can only be conquered by love”

~Pope St. John Paul II (Address to Diplomatic Corps, January 2002)
