Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry: The youth ministry program is an active part of the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Community that works to foster the spiritual growth of each young person by offering programming in evangelization, catechesis, and service. We strive to be a youth ministry program that brings youth to the recognition of God’s presence in every aspect of their lives. We focus on youth being active members of our parish and living out their Catholic faith.

 

  • Evangelization: A time we come together to socialize, laugh, play, and enjoy friendships with members of our faith community. Drop-in for grades 8-12 follows religious education classes on Sunday nights from 7:00-8:30. Other activities/outings are announced throughout the year.

 

  • Catechesis: A time we come together to learn more about the life and mission of Jesus and how to incorporate that knowledge into our daily actions and interactions. Focus is on Catholic teachings that help youth with everyday concerns.  Grades 9-12 meet Sundays from 6:00-7:00 P.M. We attend the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) every other year to listen to national speakers and come together with other young Catholics to learn more about our faith.

 

  • Service: A time we come together in service to one another as well as the community. A yearly summer mission trip with Catholic Heart Work Camp allows youth to focus on having a servant’s heart. In our parish, youth volunteer at our Masses, our picnic, VBS, Trunk or Treat, and other events throughout the year. Other outside service opportunities are offered throughout the year.
