Youth Ministry

We welcome all youth ministers!

We hope this site contains valuable information and resources to assist you and your parish in providing the highest quality youth ministry program.

Youth ministry is more than simply keeping youth busy or out of trouble, it’s purpose is to invite and integrate youth into the total life and mission of the church. This is accomplished by establishing a comprehensive youth ministry program that includes 8 dynamic and interrelated components: Advocacy, Catechesis, Community Life, Evangelization, Justice and Service, Leadership Development, Pastoral Care, and Prayer and Worship. These are detailed in the USCCB document Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry.

Goals of Comprehensive Youth Ministry

To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today. To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community. To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.

As a youth minister, you are called to be a guide for the youth in your program, offering them multiple and various ways to embrace and grow in the Catholic faith.
