Youth and Young Adult

Youth and Young Adult Ministry

Our Youth and Young Adult Ministry has something for everyone. Our meetings and events are full of fun, food, friends and faith. Friendships are made while participating in meetings and events.

Try being a part of something bigger that is bigger than yourself. What are you looking for? What will make you happy? Ultimately, it is the same thing, Christ. We find happiness through service, fun, fellowship, events and much more. Come and experience this for yourself.

All are welcome. Bring a friend if you want. The friends you bring to events don’t have to be members of our parish, in fact, they don’t even have to be Catholic. Check us out!

This program is focused on the virtues, characteristics and qualities of a true young man of God. There is a focus on the lives of particular male Saints and how they used their faith and love for God to overcome obstacles and to live a life of truth.


The inspiration for this program is St. Joseph himself. We take into consideration the different ages of the boys, so the instruction and hands-on activities will differ. We are blessed to have two amazing Catholic men from our parish facilitate this group. 

  • Growing in virtue and the study of the Saints.

  • Cool crafts and hands-on activities.

  • Onsite service projects.

  • Making friendships that will grow with time and grow in a sense of a true Catholic boys’ community.

  • Field trips, sports, games and fun

All boys: 1st through 5th Grade are welcome to join.

When:

Meetings are on 2 - Sundays of each month.
