Youth Ministry

Our mission is three-fold; we seek to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in the world today, to draw youth to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic Church, and to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of the young people in our faith community.

 

Saint Anne Youth Ministry is open to youth entering the ninth grade, or for those in high school who have not had youth ministry experience previously. Our purpose is to build a community of young people examining issues at the forefront of their minds & lives, to encourage growth socially, provide interaction through community service projects, and faithfully deepen the relationship with God.

About Registration:

In April all the students are invited to register for the youth ministry program, however, this is not a requirement of any student. In order to register for Confirmation, you must be registered for and have participated in the youth ministry program and retreat.

About Classes:

During the school year, the Youth Ministry group meets on Monday evenings in the parish hall. From 6:00 PM to 6:30 PM youth may arrive and have time to socialize and check out upcoming events. At 6:30 PM we begin our meeting and will finish with closing prayer by 8:30 PM. There is a phone available if anyone needs to call locally for a ride home. We offer a total youth ministry program, which means that in addition to everything else, we place a high emphasis on community worship. Providing teenagers and their parents with a liturgy toward their spiritual needs is the first step. We offer a Youth Liturgy on the second and fourth Sunday’s of the month at the 6:00 PM mass. There are a wide variety of ways young people are invited to participate in the Youth Liturgy: the Youth Choir, Lector Ministry, Eucharistic Ministry and the Ministry of Welcome

Retreat:

In addition to Saint Anne gatherings, we offer Youth Ministry participants two-weekend retreats a year, one in the winter and one in the spring. Students wishing to enter the Confirmation program must attend one of these two retreats prior to registration for Confirmation. There is a limit to 40 students per retreat.

Updates on classes will be posted on this page throughout the school year.
