Our community and parish value young people. We seek to provide a program and ministry that enables young people to lead lives of holiness while giving them opportunities to pray, lead, serve, play, learn, and grow.

All youth ministry events are open to youth in grades 9-12.

The Corpus Christi youth group will meet on Wednesday evenings, 7-8:30pm. Our schedule can be found on the calendar below. In addition to regular youth group meetings, there will be opportunities for service and fun. Check here for information about upcoming events.

End of Year Confirmation / Band / Sr. High Picnic
We will gather on Wednesday, May 9, 6-8pm at the fire pit behind church to celebrate the wonderful year that we had. We will play games and eat food! Hotdogs, chips, fruit, and s’mores will be served.

Give and Grin Summer Service Program
Youth entering Grade 6-12 gather for six Wednesdays in June, July, and August to share their time and talents with others. We serve at a wide range of locations in the community in the morning, gather at lunchtime for reflection and bible study, and then have a social activity in the afternoon. Youth focus on learning about Catholic Social Teaching and using the talents God has given to make a difference in the lives of others.
