What is our Mission?
The mission of the St. Mary Youth Ministry Program is to create life-long disciples of Jesus Christ in and through the Catholic Church.
Through relational ministry and discipleship, we seek to lead the youth of the Parish to Christ and his Church which will lead the youth of our Parish on the road to salvation. Guided by the Holy Spirit, and through the Intercession of Mary and the Saints, we participate in the life of the Church through liturgy, prayer, service, and fellowship. We are strengthened by the Sacraments, grounded in Sacred Scripture and Tradition, and directed by the teachings of the Catholic Church. We will respond to the Pope Benedict’s call to engage the culture with the “New Evangelization” and we will spread the Gospel to the youth of the Parish and develop a new generation of young people striving to be Saints.
