Who is High School Ministry for?

Our High School Ministry is meant for any 9-12th graders in public school, Catholic school, or home-school. Our youth ministry is open to all teens at St. Mary and St. Augustine! Our vision is for every parish teen to belong to a small group, from 7-12th grade. 

 

What is it and why join?

Our youth ministry is primarily a small group ministry. Our goal is to build up small group community where every teen belongs to a small group of friends, each led by an adult leader. Small groups are an excellent way to grow in friendship with others, while growing as a disciple of Jesus. Each week we gather for activities, talks, and discussion on a given topic. Don’t think classrooms – think small groups!

As a high school group, we also have other opportunities throughout the year such as mission trips and conferences.

 

Meet The Team

Our HS ministry is run by a vibrant team of volunteers. You can read more about them here: Meet the Team.

If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering, please contact Youth Minister Jeffrey Kremer at [email protected].
