St John XXIII Catholic Church Youth Ministry is a program designed to excite the Catholic Faith of our youth during their middle school and high school years.

At our youth group nights, we discuss issues and topics that are relevant to life experiences as we open our eyes to issues that teens face today. Additionally, we include a relaxed, informal venue of Faith formation, Sacraments and Bible Study.

Our youth enjoy the social aspects and exciting team building activities at every session as they experience a sense of who we are as a community and to have fun.
