It opens doors to opportunities to explore the mission of the Church in order to discern their own personal gifts. It opens doors to oppoertunities for the use of those gifts within the context of community.  Youth Ministry must be liturgically based in Scripture and gospel values that are grounded in the Eucharist celebration of Catholic community.

To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ; to draw youth to responsible participation in our faith communitys life, mission and work to foster each young persons personal and spiritual growth.
