We invite teens and families to be actively involved in the life of the parish, especially in the areas of liturgy, faith formation, service, and community building. Student Ministry offers the chance to grow in love for Christ and his Church, and share Christ’s service to others. Young people create friendships, develop leadership skills and nurture the value of striving to follow Jesus’ example.
