Youth Ministry Commission

The Youth Ministry Commission meets on the 2nd Monday of each month and all teens are invited to attend. During these meetings we are kept abreast of everything the Parish Council is working on through our Youth Representative. All Youth Ministry activities are decided on and planned by the teens (with moderate assistance from adult ministers) during these meetings.

Our youth ministry is based on three major components: Spiritual, Social and Service. We strive to ensure that we maintain a healthy balance of all three.

Spiritual activities include:

  • Teen Masses once a month
  • Prayer group Wednesday nights during the school year
  • XLT at St. Catherine’s once a month on Thursday nights
  • During the summer months we attend Mass one morning during the week and go to breakfast afterwards
  • Movie nights
  • Discussion nights
  • Vocation nights
  • Steubenville Retreat
  • Pro Life March in DC.
  • Hosting and planning the Confirmation Retreat
  • … and more

Social activities include:

  • Lock Ins
  • Rec Nights
  • Lake of the Ozarks weekends
  • Swim Parties
  • Paint Ball
  • Mother’s day and Father’s day parties hosted by the teens
  • Fundraising to help pay for our retreats
  • … and other fun events we set up during the year decided on by the teens

Service activities include:

  • Helping people in need in the parish
  • Annual Happy Birthday Jesus Party
  • Sandwich making for Our Ladies Inn
  • New Life Evangelistic Center
  • Working at Twice Blessed Clothing Shop
  • Helping with ACTS retreats
  • … and doing other service projects in the community as requested
