High School Youth Ministry

High School Youth are creative, full of energy and ideas of how world "should be" and how they can make a difference. They CAN, DO, and WILL make a difference now and in the future. They all have different gifts and talents. They each have charisms that God has given them to share with the world! They want and need to know they are being heard and to feel as if they are accepted.

"ELEVATE YM" (St. Paul Parish High School Youth Ministry Program) is a safe place where youth can explore their Catholic faith and dive deeper through discussion, discernment, and engage in leadership and service among their community of peers.  

It's up to us to journey with them, mentor them, accept them, pray with and for them, support them and listen to them. Many would say they are the "future of the church". In some cases, they are right. BUT, consider this. They are the church NOW.

Our 1st choice is June 11-13th. Deposit to reserve a spot is $50 (includes meal plan and accomodations). If this date fills up, our 2nd choice will be July 9-11th.  More details to follow.
