Each year the youth program continues to grow and expand with the vibrant teens of our parish. Our goal is to to excite, inspire, capture and ignite young people for Jesus so that they may live out their faith and become tomorrow's Christian leaders.

The theme of our logo came from the idea that we must all be rooted in Christ and joyful in our faith. "So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." Colossians 2:6-7.

Our mission is to bring teens into a relationship with Christ through love, friendship, fellowship and fun. Our many activities including youth group, confirmation class, movie nights, Padres games, beach days, retreats, trips to Magic Mountain, all bring us into a deeper relationship with Christ and one another.

We invite you to pray for our youth group as we continue to build our community of young adults. If you have a child in 7th or 8th grade, we invite them to join our Junior High Program. If you have a teen in high school, please encourage them to become a member of the High School group where they will grow into leaders with other members of the parish.

If you are a young adult who would like to get involved in our group, please contact Jenny in the youth office. Volunteering with the Youth Ministry is a rewarding and exciting opportunity to mentor the teens of our parish and develop lasting relationships that will change both your life and the life of another.

If we are rooted in Him, our tree will bear more fruit and we will be full of life. The goal and desire of all the members of the youth ministry is to grow deeper in our faith and be rooted in Christ. God Bless!
