Join our Parish Youth Group! We invite students in grades 6th to 12th to join this wonderful youth ministry. We also encourage the parents and adults of our youth to come and consider volunteering a few hours a week or month to support, care and guide our child to develop their faith in God, love of God, family, neighbor, and country. For more details, talk to one of the priests or Youth Group Leaders about joining and volunteering. Or email us at .
God bless you and your families!
