Sunday Morning Youth Ministry follows the Sunday Christian Formation schedule. This satisfies the requirement for Confirmation for students in public school.

Sunday Evening Youth Ministry - 6-8th graders

Meets one Sunday of the month, 6:15 - 8:00pm.

This is a ministry for all 6-8th graders to explore their faith together and build community. We do this through social and service activities. The focus is on building a strong faith community throughout our middle school parishioners. This ministry meets year-round. Please check the current youth ministry calendar for meeting dates.

Catechesis for Grades 6-8 uses the CHOSEN: This is Your Catholic Faith 3 year Christian Formation program from Ascension Press.

Francis, Clare, and Companions - 2-8th graders

We meet on the Wednesday when both public and parochial schools have early release, 1:15 - 2:45pm upstairs in Smith Hall.

2-8th graders come join St. Mary's Youth Ministry and the Secular Franciscans for a time of fun and fellowship! We have games, Saint and vocation stories, snacks and prayer!! (7-8th graders, please come and help lead.)
