Junior High Youth Ministry
A Note on Jr. High Ministry for the Fall:
I’m super excited for when Jr. High Ministry starts back up in the fall. In several ways, it’ll be different than what we’re used to, but we’ve also got a lot of cool things planned. I’m excited to welcome back any of our 8th graders, and welcome 7th graders into the ministry! Details are still in the works for now, such as weekly meeting times and scheduling. A link will be posted here when registration opens – ideally, this will be towards the beginning of August. Our anticipated start date for Jr. High Ministry is Sunday, September 27.
Jeffrey Kremer, Youth Minister
Our Jr. High summer ministry will meet on Wednesdays from 7:30-8:30pm. We will meet on the parish grounds, weather permitting. All rising 7th and 8th graders are welcome! Teens and their families are invited to attend 7:00 pm Mass before our meeting.

What we do:
For the summer, a typical night includes a game or icebreaker, followed by sharing our highs and lows for the week, and reading a Scripture passage together. Our goals for the summer are super simple: have fun, build community, pray together, and listen to the Word of the Lord. Our hope is to provide a setting where teens can share faith with each other, grow in community, and walk alongside leaders on their path of discipleship.
We plan to meet outside, weather permitting, where we are better able to social distance. Even though we’ll be outside, we highly encourage all the teens to bring and use a mask.
Mission: Make lifelong disciples.
Method: Small groups.
