Welcome to the St. Vincent de Paul Youth Ministry Home Page.
It is our goal to create Christian leaders and strengthen their
sense of community in our parish and in their families.
Many people believe that youth ministry involves
solely the youth. However, this ministry requires
the participation of the entire Parish. The focus
for Catholic adults is to encourage and mentor the
youth of our community by example in service and
spirituality. Furthermore, it is their responsibility
to invite the youth to work and pray alongside them.
Some adults have a calling to serve the youth in a
more interactive way, by assisting with the youth
group or confirmation class. Youth Ministry welcomes
volunteers who love people and are able to work with
youth in Grades 4-6, 7-8, or 9-12 in a friendly
and inviting manner.
The second aspect of youth ministry involves the youth.
This ministry is designed to encourage them in learning
about all aspects of service and ministry. The youth
have the opportunity not only to grow in their faith,
but to have fun at the same time.

St. Vincent Youth Ministry is a family of young
Catholics committed to the goal of living out the
call of the Gospels through fellowship, prayer,
and service in a constant effort to become the
young men and women God created each one to be.
Members of the group strive to know Christ intimately,
to understand His constant love for them, and to share
that love with those around them.

ST. JOHN BOSCO,
OUR PATRON SAINT OF YOUTH
Saint John Bosco, you reached out to
children whom you cared for despite ridicule and insult. Help us to
care less about the laughter of the world and care more about the joy
of the Lord. Amen.
