Youth Ministry

What is Youth Ministry?

Youth Ministry is open to anyone in grades 7-12, and is a way of engaging young people with their faith and religious community. The Youth Ministry program at SJA is a multi-dimensional experience that takes the knowledge built in PSR and Catholic school and teaches the students to live out those lessons in their daily lives. Youth Ministry focuses on faith-based activities, service work, and fun activities that encourage community.
New for 2019-2020:
Allie will have open office hours on Sundays from 11am - 2pm beginning Sunday, September 8. Drop by, chat, talk through problems, or suggest activities!

Are you in grades 7-12? Join us for a fun day of flag football, mass, and pizza! We'll start out with a game of flag football, then head to mass at 4:30 followed by pizza. This event will take place even in the case of light rain/cold/mud, so please dress appropriately to get dirty and bring a change of clothes/shoes for mass. You must have a current waiver on file to participate in football - be prepared and print one out and bring it filled out if you haven't done so!
