Youth and Family Ministry

WELCOME TO

GRACE AND PEACE!

Guiding the next generation has always been at the heart of our parish youth ministry. The ability to speak to young people in a way that provides clarity and focus on their purpose in life is a priority for us. Having Michael as full-time Youth and Family Coordinator this past year has created even more opportunity for us to support and encourage young people in our parish to step up for action. His passion for working to help guide youth towards an authentic relationship with God is a beautiful testimony to the type of Youth ministry we deserve in a Salesian Parish.

St. Dominic Savio Catholic Youth and Family Ministry aims to foster encounters with Christ and equip everyone to be sent out as His disciples. During the year, we offer regular events and meetings for young people and families in our parish, schools, and community.

Throughout the year, including the summer, we hold activities such as summer camps, youth groups, young adults, family events, social nights, and retreats for everyone. The youth programs are designed to motivate youth to live virtue and love through their Catholic faith. Each group meet once a week to discuss and learn about our Catholic faith through games, skits, crafts, songs, and snacks.

Eleven Signs Your Youth Group Is Damaging Your Children

We value the relationship we have with parents, the primary influence in a child’s life. It is our joy that you will help us to strengthen and build a future for our youth that has Jesus Christ at the center. Youth are one small piece of a much bigger puzzle. The next generation is full of purpose, direction, hope, and identity in Jesus.
