We strive to form intentional, faith filled and joyful disciples of Jesus Christ by empowering teen leaders, forming relationships, rooting ourselves in prayer and in our Catholic identity, and most importantly, by participation in the Sacraments.
Know your faith. Live your faith. Share your faith.
How well do you know the faith? Where is that in the Bible? Why do you Catholics worship Mary? How can you believe in those old superstitions? The list goes on. You've heard the questions, but do you know the answers? Can you really defend your faith? We’re here to help. Our newest series, We Believe, is an accessible and essential guide to understanding the teachings of our Catholic faith so that you can defend it and bring others to the Church.
Discover the Truth! There’s a lot of bad information out there. Catholics are sometimes surprised when they learn the truth about the Faith. Have you ever been told that we don’t need the sacraments? Or that the Eucharist is just a symbol of our unity? How about the claim that Catholics added “extra” books to the Bible? None of those claims are true, but most Catholics don’t know how to respond. Do you? In this 30-day series, we’ll walk you through what the Catholic Church actually teaches, so you can know your faith better, live it out, and share it with others. Get the Answers You NEED to Know. In the past 50 years, many Catholics haven't been given the education they deserve. We Believe will give you that education so that you can understand your faith more deeply and defend it. Each day we’ll answer a real-world question or objection that Catholics hear all the time.
It's safe to say that I miss seeing everybody at St. Mary's! This is definitely a weird, crazy and very uncertain and frightening time. But I want you to know that I am still thinking about you and praying for you. We are all in this together. And in this storm, Jesus is still here.
I have created a tab up above for online youth ministry during this time. There you will find resources, and events/activities. Please check it out and enjoy!
I would highly encourage you if you do not already to please follow St. Mary Youth Ministry on Facebook and/or Instagram. I will be utilizing those platforms even more during this time while we are quarantined.
While I am not in the office right now, please feel free to reach out to me anytime via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
