“Dear young people, let yourselves be taken over by the light of Christ, and spread that light wherever you are.” Saint Pope John Paul II
WHAT IS YOUTH MINISTRY ABOUT?
Youth ministry is the responsibility of the entire parish! That is why you will see the young people of St. Bernadette serving and being served across the spectrum of the parish community. Every person who smiles at, shakes the hand of, encourages, parents, mentors, prays for, or otherwise impacts a young person is doing youth ministry!
However, having “a Youth Ministry” also means that we intentionally focus on parishioners in the age group from grade six through the senior year of high school (and on their families). We believe they are part of the Church RIGHT NOW! (they are not just the “Church of tomorrow”!) We create experiences to empower them, to help them to grow, and to support them in this very fruitful time of their lives.
