Our Youth Ministry is a joint ministry of the Cathedral parish and school with and for young people from 2nd semester of 8th grade through 12. Find us on FACEBOOK join our group. Our youth directors are: Maggie O'Neill with the assistance of Fr. Robert Szczechura.
We have regular weekly meetings on Sunday afternoons in the gym beginning at 5:00 p.m. Meetings generally consist of song, prayer, program, and faith sharing, and sometimes FOOD. In addition to these weekly meetings, we offer a number of other activities, centered around service, fellowship, and social justice.
There are a number of ways to support the ministry:
- The most important of these is prayer. Those who are involved in youth ministry represent the young church of today. They are faced with a number of important choices, including the choice of life-style and vocation. They need all of our prayers.
- If you are in 2nd semester of 8th grade through 12, get involved. Attend the regular weekly meetings or pick another event to get your feet wet. If you have ideas, especially for ways in which we can provide service to the parish, school, or wider community, let us know.
- If you are an adult with a special talent or story to tell, let us know by calling the parish office at 725-2700.
If you would like to make a monetary contribution to our youth group to support the ministry, make your check payable to the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and designate your gift for Youth.
