  • Advent 2023:
    The Gifts God Gives Us

    God gives us many good gifts, but these can become “god” things. This series explores how we use things like time, success, beauty, and relationships to get approval, power, comfort, and security. We’re going to look at how we misuse God's gifts and why we look to them for fulfillment instead of God himself.

  • Youth Ministry: Goals and Aspirations

    In all aspects of Youth Ministry we want teens to grow and deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church. Our goal is to offer a ministry sustained by Adult Leaders and Coordinator of Youth Ministry (Tony Carbrello). There are many options of what we may do and how we may do it!

    Our hopes for Middle School Youth Ministry in 2023 and beyond:
    Youth Ministry will supplement the regular pre-teen faith formation ministry, by providing opportunties for events that are: Social, Community-building, and include Works of Mercy (service), and more!

    Our High School Youth Ministry includes:
    - all High School Faith Formation, including Confirmation preparation, and prayer experiences embedded into that schedule (such as Stations of the Cross)
    - Peer Ministry (leadership and advisory group)
    - Events (such as Turkey Truck, Christmas Tree Lighting, Christmas Tree Pick up, Stations of the Cross for the collaborative)
    - Supporting Collaborative Events such as: Family Christmas party, Easter Egg Hunt
    -Summer Opportunities (such as Steubenville East, Catholic Heart WorkCamp)

    Areas for further growth for High School Youth Ministry:
    - Sustainable regularly scheduled opportunities of Works of Mercy / Mission
    - Increased involvement of teens in liturgical ministries
    - Opportunities for teens to experience church social events
