Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry is for teenagers in grades 7-12. Normally, groups will be split up with one consisting of 7th and 8th graders and the other consisting of 9th-12th graders. We have middle school youth nights on Tuesday’s and high school youth nights on the Second and Fourth Sundays of the month. We meet to learn more about our Faith while helping each other grow in holiness. We also have many other events happening for both groups including; a lock-in, a mission trip, retreats and a bowling night, just to name a few. A teen that comes to youth group regularly can expect to become not only more knowledgeable about our Faith, but can also expect to become better prepared for their next step in their life.

Youth Ministry Sports Nights

Come out and join St. Mary Youth Ministry in our monthly sports nights held over at Diantha Hall. These nights start after the 5pm mass usually on the 3rd or 4th Saturday of the month. We play a sport for about 2 hours and then we enjoy pizza, pop, and fellowship. The sports we play rotate from month to month and as the weather gets nicer we will hold them outside. Exact dates for our sports nights can be found on the calendar at the bottom of the page.
