“Youth Ministry is important in the life of the Church! In this grace-filled moment, you and I are called, by the Lord, to do this important ministry.
It is an exciting time to do Youth Ministry in this ‘moment of grace,’ especially with the election of Pope Francis. His humility, simplicity and example is prompting the world, especially among young people, to give the Church a ‘second look’.
In the digital age, Youth Ministry is bringing the Good News to young people by the art of living well – and it begins and ends with the Lord. May we remain faithful to the challenges of our own time, and using the gifts before us, including technology, may we bring many people to live well in this life and the next.”
–His Excellency, The Most Reverent Frank J. Caggiano of Bridgeport, Connecticut
Member of the Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth
Youth ministries are opportunities for youth to engage in parish life and outreach.
Multiple programs are available, including assisting with the younger children in the Kids Liturgy of the Word program and The God Squad outreach program. We’re hoping to develop more opportunities in the near future.
KID’S LITURGY OF THE WORD YOUTH MENTORS
THE GOD SQUAD
Includes two youth age groups who meet to discuss areas of need and methods to help in the community. This allows youth to learn to problem solve and lead to make positive changes in the world.
