St. Mary Junior Youth Group is for the youth in our parish in grades 6-8. The St. Mary Senior Youth Group is for the youth in our parish in grades 9-12. Our mission is to have our youth grow in their relationship with Christ and their catholic Faith. We provide a healthy, safe environment where they come together and come to understand that they are a part of something greater than themselves – a Catholic community. Both groups engage in service activities, encourage spiritual growth and provide fun activities in a Christ-centered environment.

Certain activities in our Youth Groups require advanced sign-up by specified deadlines and signed permission/liability forms. This information is available in the bulletin, youth group display board in the vestibule of the church or here on our website. Please also check the bulletin or website for details, changes, and updates in our schedule.

Schedules for both Junior and Senior Youth Group can be downloaded from the "Forms" link on our website.

In an effort to help our High School teens learn more about Catholic social teaching and how it relates to others, we sponsor an annual Mission Trip/Retreat the last week in June. This trip is available to teens from our parish currently in High School. You may view the Mission Trip guidelines here.
