Our Youth Ministry strives to adhere to the components for a comprehensive ministry (ministry of advocacy, catechesis, community life, evangelization, justice and service, leadership development, pastoral care, and prayer and worship) as outlined by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops in “Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry.”
