Youth Ministry: Ave Maria Parish

Three interdependent and equally important goals guide the Church's ministry with adolescents. These goals state what it means for the Catholic community to respond to the needs of young people and to involve young people in sharing their unique gifts with the larger community. They express the Church's focus for ministry with adolescents, while encouraging local creativity in developing the programs, activities, and strategies to reach these goals.

  • Goal 1: To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today
  • Goal 2: To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.
  • Goal 3: To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person. Taken from USCCB directives for Youth Ministry

Youth Group of Ave Maria Parish, 2019 - 2020

New year is beginning!  I know that many of you cannot attend all of our meetings but I encourage you to come when you can.  Your faith is a very important part of your life and should be your No. 1 priority.  Life is short but our Eternity with God is forever.  If we wish to live with Him forever, we must come to know Him in this life and develop a loving relationship with Our Lord who has done so much for us.

During this new year, our youth group will be looking to Scripture to inform us about our dignity as children of God, the path that God has choosen for us as His disciples and how we can live accordingly.

We will be using the Program "Genesis to Jesus"  by Ascension Press.  We will be reading the sacred scriptures and having discussion on how the WORD can apply to our lives and our current situation.

Hope you all can come and participate!
