Youth Ministry

The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry exists to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic Church. This is done by calling young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.

The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry exists to provide spiritual and professional formations for those who minister to the young church.


MTEAM_horizontal_RGB_small The vision for the Diocesan Missionary Team (DMT) is to reach young people “on the ground” in their parishes and Catholic schools. The DMT will evangelize young people by offering them an opportunity to not only hear about the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ, but to learn and understand the grace of the truth that will set them free. It is the vision of the DMT that once young people have experienced the transformational grace and mercy of Jesus Christ, they will hunger and thirst to go deeper in their own Catholic faith life.

Retreats will be segregated to 6th–8th grade and 9th-12th grade. Themes for retreats will consist of Confirmation, Evangelization (Who is Jesus?), Going Deeper in Your Faith (Why Catholic?), Men’s/Ladies’ Retreats.

Funds are needed to support the following items:
  • A 10 Passenger Van for DMT transportation to/from retreats
  • Computers, Projector, screen, sound system and cell phones to organize & deliver retreats
  • Housing and food for Team members
  • Retreat & Office Supplies
  • Team Training
  • Scholarship program for schools and churches
