High School Youth Ministry
Corpus Christi Youth Group
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.
