Weekly youth meetings are a time of connecting with other youth, learning more about our Catholic faith, and discussing current challenges teens face today.

It is a place to ask tough questions, seek support and grow closer to Christ.

WORD TO PARENTS

Whether facing challenges at home, peer pressure, or transitioning to high school, youth are more likely to stick to their values and continue in their faith tradition when they are supported by like-minded friends and community. Yes, we teach and instruct, but we do it in community because that is how Christ taught his Disciples. We aren’t meant to grow alone. Have questions, suggestions, or want to get involved? Please don’t hesitate to contact Chrysten at youthministry@stmarymtangel.org
