“The responsible participation of young people in the life of the Church is not optional, but it is a demand of baptismal life and an essential element of the life of every community.”Final Document for the XV Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, 2018
Covid-19 Ministry Changes
Amidst the challenges of our time, we have currently suspended all our in-person program opportunities and meetings. However, we are and will continue to implement new initiatives and ministry changes to keep connected in spite of these times of quarantines and social distancing. See the tab below to see how we will still be offering youth ministry opportunities to connect and grow in faith in spite of the current situation.
Teenagers throughout our community are looking for something: friendship, someone to support them, answers to life’s big questions, and faith. It is our mission as a community of believers to support and empower our youth, not simply so they can become the Church of the future, but so that they can be a vibrant and essential part of the Church of TODAY.
Lourdes Youth Ministry is the term for all of our intentional outreach and ministry to young people in middle school, high school, and their families. Our mission is to walk with young people through life’s ups and downs and encourage them to claim their God-given purpose while building authentic relationships with Jesus, His Church, and those around them.
Similar to our parish discipleship path, we offer opportunities for young people to ENCOUNTER Jesus present in the Sacraments and community, GROW in their relationship with Christ and understanding of the faith, and SERVE by sharing their gifts and talents and witnessing their faith to others.
