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.

Our Youth Minister


PJ is our Youth Minister here at St. Joseph's. He plans fun and engaging weekly middle-school and high-school activities throughout the year.

Originally from the "Golden State," he was born and raised in Bakersfield, CA. PJ recently graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville studying Theology and was involved in music and youth ministry. Since graduating, he wishes to continue his efforts to serve the youth of our community so they might seek, encounter, and love Christ. PJ cannot wait to meet our whole parish-family and call the great rocky state of Colorado "home."
