Grades 7-12

Holy Apostles Youth Ministry program is open to all parish youth in grades 7-12. According to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) the goal of Youth Ministry is to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today. We hope to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic Faith Community by fostering the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.

Many opportunities are offered to help your teen develop habits of discipleship to help them grow in their faith.
