Mission

St. Joseph Youth Ministry encourages the youth to encounter Jesus Christ and His Church unceasingly. We holdfast to His teachings, foster a Christ-centered community, and seek participation in the sacraments and prayer. We follow the example of St. Joseph, our patron saint, finding our home in the family of Christ.


High School Youth Ministry

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me...
— Matthew 25:35

We believe service brings us together, develops real-world skills like leadership and collaboration, and encourages us to be caring and empathetic people. With that in mind, we are committed to giving our middle school youth opportunities to engage in service projects within our parish community.

In order to provide opportunities for faith formation, activities, service projects, and more for all middle school youth without a registration fee, we are asking all youth and parents to make a commitment to be involved in our fundraising efforts throughout the year.


5th Grade and Younger

Currently, youth in 5th grade and younger are part of our Religious Education Program. For the 2018-2019 school year, students in 4th and 5th grade are preparing to receive the sacrament of Confirmation as we work to be inline with the Restored Order of the sacraments of initiation. Please click here to learn more about Religious Education Program.
