Youth Ministry

“I want every young person in our Diocese to discover the new life that comes from Christ and to experience the grace of belonging to His Body, the Church. We must make sure that all our young people feel at home in the Church where they are loved with Christ’s love and learn to live their faith with joy. We need our young people to be missionary disciples and to give new energy to the Church!”

-Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades
