“Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young but be an example for the believers in your speech, your conduct, your love, faith, and purity.”

1 Timothy 4:12

Love God

What better way to grow in our love of God than by spending time with Him!?! We strive to give teens opportunities to grow in God's Word, serve His Church, find rest & dwell in His Presence.

Love Neighbor

As Christians, we are called to go beyond ourselves, to get out of our comfort zones, to set aside our agendas for the good of others. We make it our mission to serve others in the Spirit of Christ.

Love Life

Life is meant to be full of abundant joy! We aim to provide teens with many opportunities to have fun in their faith. Teen life isn't always easy, but in Christ it's full of hope, promise, and love!

INTRODUCING

YOUTH MINISTRY IS NOW *UNITED*St. John the Baptist & St. Christopher are now joining together as one unit on a mission to return our teens to the faith, awaken souls, multiply and evolve as missionary disciples, seeking out what it means and what it looks like to live an authentic life, living the Gospel truth in our every day lives!

SO WHAT IS *UNITED*?

UNITED is…

YM / GIFT / PSR / Confirmation Prep … all rolled into one!

Catholic teaching through shared experiences in the beauty and richness of our faith.

Youth Ministry that is truly inclusive, inviting teens deeper into a personal relationship with Jesus and broadening their sense of Catholic teen community.

Schedule-friendly encouraging the opportunity for a more regular commitment without the rush.

Confirmation Prep intertwined with youth ministry for Freshmen and Sophomores desiring the Sacrament of Confirmation. 

For ALL teens, from EVERY school… CJ, Tipp, Butler, Morton, St. Chris, Carroll, Alter, Troy, etc. — come as you are, no matter where you are in your faith journey.

WELCOME TO YOUTH MINISTRY We invite young people in grades 6-12 to be actively involved in the life of the parish, especially in the areas of liturgy, faith formation, service and community building. Youth Ministry encourages teens to deepen their personal relationship with Jesus from acquaintance to friend, to a committed and active disciple of Christ. In YM, young people create friendships, develop leadership skills and nurture the value of striving to follow Jesus’ example.
