Youth Ministry

Grounded in the Catholic tradition, St. Mary’s offers two youth groups that empower high schoolers and middle schoolers to participate in the sacramental life and to directly address the questions and challenges youth face in a modern world. Through a variety of activities, these communities allow youth to develop relationships with one another that are rooted in the rich experience of being Catholic and disciples of Christ!

Youth Group Meetings

The high school and middle school youth groups have officially paused for summer break. Thank you for your support of this year's youth group program and may you all have a peaceful summer!
