Youth Group

Welcome to the Youth Group! 

 The school year is quickly winding down and our Religious Education classes are coming to a close for the year. Summer can be a time of adventure, relaxation, and rejuvenation. We hope that even though you won't be attending regular religious education classes that our students will still find ways to stay involved with their parish family. Below are some of the ways that middle-schoolers and high schoolers can remain involved over the summer months!
