Our group is composed of seventh through twelfth graders. Our Youth Ministry Group Alumnae (college students) often join us for special activities. Six power words: FUN, FAITH, LOVE, SERVICE, PRAYER, and PEACE describe Youth Ministry Group. We are constantly exploring and living out these words.
At each of our meetings we focus on a theme. We start each meeting with an opening prayer experience, go over upcoming activities, do an icebreaker and continue with activities and discussions that are related to our theme. In addition to activities with our entire group, we often separate into random or same age groups to discuss “stuff” at a deeper level. We utilize our older members as mentors for our younger members. We close each session with snack time and a closing prayer experience.
Outside of our regular meetings, our activities include: Crop Walk, Thanksgiving and Christmas Food Baskets, Christmas caroling, Holy Family Retreat Center, Living Stations, Italian and Irish Nights, HomeFront, and special parties.
The Youth Ministry Group is designed to provide an atmosphere where Youth can come together to socialize, have FUN, share their FAITH, experience God’s PEACE, deepen their PRAYER life, learn about God’s LOVE and SERVE others. In this environment, our Youth help each other learn how to deal with the many problems that they face in this ever-complex world.
NAM Youth Ministry Group wants to thanks the wonderful parishioners at St. Rose, St. Mary's and St. Isaac Jogues Churches.
