High School Youth Ministry

Our mission is to lead youth and their families to encounter Christ and to equip them to live as disciples.

We believe every young person should feel like they have a place in the Church and be given the opportunity to encounter Christ in a life-changing way. We seek to live this mission through weekly high school youth nights, sacramental preparation, discipleship groups that allow teens to go deeper in their faith, service days to bring the joy of Christ to others, and retreats throughout the year.

Join our community as we encounter Christ in His true presence of the Eucharist. Our Youth Mass has contemporary worship music and a homily geared towards young people, although all ages are welcome.  

We also invite young people to serve as Musicians, Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers and Greeters. Contact Katie Smith at katies@stjosephcc.net if you are interested in serving.
