For some reason, he said it multiple times in the few seconds we spoke. I have been reminded these words over and over as so many of you have been Christ’s face,......
Welcome to St. Patrick’s Youth Ministry! Our goal is simple–bring the new generation closer to Jesus Christ and his teaching so they can in turn go out and light up our world. We serve middle school, high school, and young adult students through fun and consistent weekly meetings, retreat experiences, service to all in need, and participation and leadership in the parish.
