Middle School Youth Ministry

The goal of the middle school program is to provide a place for youths to identify their place in the church, grow in their faith, and together in fellowship. The ministry is intended to help youths and families become more actively involved in the parish life.

We meet on select Wednesday evenings at 6pm. We do offer pizza and social time starting at 5:30 when meeting inside the Parish life Center. On nights where we are meeting outside we will offer a light snack and start the evening at 6pm. The outdoor sessions are listed in red below.

All 2021-22 sessions will be held in person.
