Youth Ministry

St. Mary Junior Youth Group is for the youth in our parish in grades 6-8. The St. Mary Senior Youth Group is for the youth in our parish in grades 9-12. Our mission is to have our youth grow in their relationship with Christ and their catholic Faith. We provide a healthy, safe environment where they come together and come to understand that they are a part of something greater than themselves – a Catholic community. Both groups engage in service activities, encourage spiritual growth and provide fun activities in a Christ-centered environment.

Certain activities in our Youth Groups require advanced sign-up by specified deadlines and signed permission/liability forms. This information is available in the bulletin, youth group display board in the vestibule of the church or here on our website. Please also check the bulletin or website for details, changes, and updates in our schedule.

In an effort to help our High School teens learn more about Catholic social teaching and how it relates to others, we sponsor an annual Mission Trip/Retreat the last week in June. This trip is available to teens from our parish currently in High School. You may view the Mission Trip guidelines here.

Little Flowers Girls' Club

The Little Flowers Girls’ Club is a Fun, Flexible, Faith-filled Catholic Club program whose goal is to provide young Catholic girls (and Moms), from age five and up, with an opportunity to gather and learn about their Catholic heritage, faith, virtues and traditions through games and crafts, scripture, saints’ biographies and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It is hoped the Little Flowers would learn what it means to be a Catholic girl and eventually a Catholic woman. Whether she is called to a life of consecration to our Lord, as a single woman, or as a wife and mother, what she learns as a Little Flower will give a strong foundation upon which to build.
