Youth Ministry at the Church of St. Pius X provides a safe atmosphere for junior high and high school students to experience their Catholic faith. Through social outings, retreats, service opportunities, and gatherings, our parish is committed to the Holy Father's vision of the Church's ministry with adolescents. The Holy Father's incorporates these three essential goals into his vision:
- Empowering young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
- Drawing young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the faith community.
- Fostering the personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
This is just a very short overview of the goals of Youth Ministry.
