YOUTH APOSTOLATE NEWS:
Check out the video we created after the Mount 2000 Retreat:
TEAM- Our Youth Apostolate Team consists of parents and single adults who have answered the call to serve the middle and high school youth of parish. These individuals receive regular formation on discipleship, ministry planning, praying with teens, leading small groups, youth safety, and more! The team gathers on the first Fridays of the month for Mass, dinner, and formation. During these gatherings we pray for our parish young people and continue to grow to understand how the Lord is inviting us to lead youth into a deeper relationship with Him. If you have thought that God might be calling you to serve youth in our parish, please contact our Coordinator of Youth Ministry for more information at email@example.com
