Youth Ministry is for highschoolers in grades 9-12 who are seeking to grow in their relationship with God and with one another.
When and Where?
Youth group meets the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Sunday of each month from 4:30pm-6:00pm in the Parish Youth Center (PYC) which is located across from gym door #15.
Our Focus
We seek to bring highschoolers together from many different schools and across many different cultures. Youth Ministry at St. Monica is comprised of 3 main elements: fun, faith, and service. We seek to integrate all three of these areas into youth group gatherings and activities.
