Comprehensive Youth Ministries

Our Church embraces the practice 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!

Components of Comprehensive Youth Ministries



Prayer & Worship

Community Life

Justice & Service

Leadership Development

Community Service in Youth Ministries

Youth Ministries Participants are expected to have a demonstrated commitment to Community Service.  Each year, students in grades 7 -11 are required to complete a minimum of:

1 Ministry Service (formerly called inside service) and
1 Mission Service (formerly called outside service)

Ministry Service directly 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.


Nick Vautrin, Jack Mongan, and Jordan Manocchi are eager to serve during the Knights of Columbus Lenten Fish Fry.  Volunteering with the Knights - is just one of the many Ministry Service Opportunities available to our teens!
