Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry calls for passion, patience, and faithfulness.  Our whole parish is committed to walking faithfully with our young people as they transition into young adulthood. By placing our focus on education, friendship and formation we hope to foster lasting transformation in the teens of our parish.

Responding to the spiritual needs of teens is about building trusting relationships. St. Margaret Mary’s leadership strives to walk with young people on their journey from childhood to adulthood, recognizing their gifts for ministry, their questions about spirituality, and their desire to make a difference in the world. The Youth Ministry program is grounded in a desire to invite, inspire, affirm, and equip youth for discipleship and Christian leadership both in their lives and in their community.

Our Sunday Gatherings

We usually meet every Sunday after the 5:00pm Mass to offer fun activities and learning experiences for our young people.  Our Sunday events include teaching nights, social activities (pizza making night or paint night, etc.) and prayer nights.  These nights are a great opportunity for young people to grow deeper into their faith.  The activities are great for those enrolled in the Confirmation program looking for more faith building time with positive leaders.
