Youth Ministry for Middle School at St. Anthony of Padua

Mission

The St. Anthony of Padua Youth Ministry Program is committed to the reality that young people are an important and integral part of the parish community. Youth Ministry seeks to foster the maturing of faith in the youth of our parish and the surrounding community, building disciples of Jesus Christ.

We affirm the gifts of our youth and we foster opportunities for young people to share their gifts with the larger community. The spiritual and social needs of the youth are to be met with the committed leadership, guidance, and support of our parish adults. The adults and youth of our parish are therefore provided with opportunities to grow together in Christian faith.

Through a variety of programs, events, and outreach, we seek to draw young people into responsible participation in the life, work, and mission of the parish community.

We believe the ministry is to, with, by and for the young people and is a blessing for the entire community.
