Our Youth Ministry program aims to engage those in our parish who are in middle or high school to become more actively involved in our parish and our church as a whole. The program will compliment the Faith Formation classes while also offering opportunity for those to continue in Youth Ministry through Confirmation and beyond.
St. Mary’s, Crescent offers various service opportunities over the course of the year. These opportunities are communicated via e-mail to our families and will be posted on our website. Click on service opportunities to see a list of current options!
What’s happening in the program?
In June of 2017, we had young people from our parish attend two very positive and inspiring programs through the diocese. Three from our parish (Brittney and Sarah F, and Richard P. Jr.) attended the Christian Leadership Institute, which is directed towards those entering their sophomore year of high school, where they were able to learn through community living and prayer about group dynamics, communication skills and decision making skills. With these skills, these three will become an important asset to our Youth Ministry this year and into the future!
During this time two other young people from our parish (Christian B. and Anna P.) attended Breakaway, an experience for those entering or in middle school, in order to deepen their own personal faith and help them begin to be more active in the Catholic Community.
The youths all had great experiences and are able to share their personal experiences with anyone who may be interested in going next year for summer of 2018. Interested?
