“Dear young people, you have it in you to shout. It is up to you to opt for Sunday’s 'Hosanna!', so as not to fall into Friday’s 'Crucify him!'... It is up to you not to keep quiet. Even if others keep quiet, if we older people and leaders – so often corrupt – keep quiet, if the whole world keeps quiet and loses its joy, I ask you: Will you cry out?”
Pope Francis
Palm Sunday 2018



EDUCATION: Formed in His Communion


The middle school youth group is made up of 6th, 7th and 8th graders interested in serving our neighbor, playing together and getting to know Our Lord Jesus Christ. They assemble collections for those in need, visit the elderly, go on exciting trips such as canoeing, go-karting, ice skating, and rock climbing; the group also learn about their Catholic faith through informal talks. If you are looking for a fun group, where you can make great friends, and learn more about the Catholic faith this group is for you! Check out pictures of recent events here.

Prayer for young people

Lord, grant that I may always allow myself to be guided by you, always follow your plans and perfectly accomplish your holy will. Grant that in all things, great and small, today and all the days of my life, I may do whatever you require of me. Help me respond to the slightest prompting of your grace so that I may be your trustworthy instrument for your honor. Amen.

-St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
