Building a relationship with God through each other

Are you looking for a way to connect with your faith? Do you want to meet other kids your age who love Jesus and our church? Do you like having fun? We have just the place for you! Our Youth Ministry provides a variety of fun, faith-filled experiences for kids in middle school and high school.  

  • Youth Ministry Nights: We gather twice a month to learn more about our faith and grow in friendship.
  • Faith: Together we participate in Catholic traditions such as confession, Eucharistic adoration, and prayer.
  • Service: We seek to serve those in need by supporting our parish service projects and engaging in our own.
  • Fun trips: Think a trip to a haunted house has nothing to do with your faith? Think again! We love to take adventures together and have fun!
  • Family Dinners: Our high school youth gather every few months for pitch-in dinners and conversation.
  • Retreats: From diocesan retreats with parishes throughout Northwest Indiana to the National Catholic Youth Conference and small group retreats, we regularly gather as a group to retreat from our daily lives and focus on Christ.

Sponsored by the Legacy Foundation Youth in Philanthropy Grant, our youth ministry helped two communites in NWI. >>Learn how.
