Youth Ministry Classes
St Mary’s Youth Ministry empowers young people to live as disciples of Christ in our world today and to foster their total personal and spiritual growth.
Students in 10th grade and above that meet requirements are eligible. The Sacrament is offered every 2 years. Meeting times will vary based on the liturgical calendar and can be found below.
If your child is ready to start the Sacrament process, please contact Gigi DeSa, Director of Youth Ministry.
The Mass is a liturgical celebration of words and actions that symbolize and represent meanings within the Catholic teachings and tradition. The involvement of parents, teachers, friends, and community members in the liturgy provide a deeper sense of belonging, identity and perhaps security. We welcome youth to participate in the Mass by Ushering, Cantering, and Lecturing. If interested, please contact Gigi DeSa.
Our ministries focus on social justice. Catholic Social Justice teaches us that all people are made in the image of God and so possess an equal and inalienable worth. Because of this essential dignity, each person has a right to all that is needed to allow him or her to live their full potential as intended by God. We devote a lot of our time to the Shenandoah Food Pantry in their never ending efforts to assist those in need in our community.
NCYC, National Catholic Youth Conference
The National Catholic Youth Conference, frequently referred to as NCYC, is a three-day event for Roman Catholic youth. NCYC is held in U.S. cities every two years and organized in part by the host diocese of the city. The conference is organized by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry.
