What is Comprehensive Youth Ministry?

More than youth group.  Forming disciples before, during and after Confirmation.  Integrating teens into the life of the parish liturgy, community and the wider world as followers of Jesus.  Many events and activities are open to youth in grades 6-12.  Some events are limited by age.

With that in mind, the Director of Youth Ministry, other staff, parent and parish volunteers and teens leaders put together a variety of activities to promote the growth of the teens as disciples.  There are three goals for this effort based on a document by the USCCB – Renewing the Vision (1997):

  • To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in the world today.
  • To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.
  • To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.

This includes a variety of components:

  • Advocacy
  • Catechesis
  • Community Life
  • Evangelization
  • Justice and Service
  • Leadership Development
  • Pastoral Care
  • Prayer and Worship
