What is Catholic Youth Ministry? It is everything that a parish community does to engage young people into the life and mission of the Church. It is a ministry for, by, with and to young people in grades 6 through 12. St. Paul Catholic Youth Ministry follows the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ document on comprehensive youth ministry, Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry.
Our mission is to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ engaged in the life and mission of the Church.

Parents matter… a lot!
The National Study of Youth and Religion has shown that parents are the most important factor in the faith lives of adolescents. Additionally, the Catholic Church recognizes that parents are the first examples for their children’s faith. With that in mind, St. Paul Youth Ministry welcomes and encourages parent involvement.
