Comprehensive Youth Ministries
Our Church embraces the philosophy of "Comprehensive Youth Ministries" (CYM) The goal of CYM is to utilize 8 components of ministry to ensure that youth are fully engaged in all aspects of our Church. Many people think of youth ministries as going to "religion classes" - "Catechesis" (learning about faith) is 1 of the 8 components but CYM is SO much MORE than just religion classes!

Community Service in Youth Ministries
Youth Ministries Participants are expected to have a
demonstrated commitment to Community Service.
Each year, regardless of which faith formation model is selected,
participants in grades 6 -11 are required to complete a minimum of:
1 Ministry Service (formerly called inside service) and
1 Mission Service (formerly called outside service)
Ministry Servicedirectly benefits our Parish Community offering Youth Ministries participants an opportunity to work alongside existing Parish Ministries.
Mission Service takes our young adults out into the world completing service that benefits our community at large. Many Mission Service Opportunities are coordinated through our office, however, we recognize that many youth are involved with community service through various school, scout and sports organizations - oftentimes those experiences can fulfill your Mission Service requirement. Please contact the Youth Ministries Office for approval.
2023-2024 Community Service Opportunities
will be shared via email as they become available!
Please be sure that we have the correct email address on file for you, so that you receive program updates and reminders.
