The goal for Youth Ministry is to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today, to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic faith community, and to foster to total personal and spiritual growth of each young person. Youth Ministry at St. Jude Catholic Church provides Religious Faith Formation classes for grades 7 through 12 as well as Confirmation Preparation for high school students who are at least a sophomore and 15 years old. In addition, activities and events are scheduled throughout the year for the youth to provide them with the opportunity to socialize, to do service, to develop their leadership skills, to receive catechesis, and to evangelize.
Youth Ministry is not just for the youth. Adult volunteers are needed to make the programs successful. Teachers, teacher’s aides, drivers, and chaperones are just a few of the positions that require adult volunteers. All volunteers who work with directly with youth are required to attend “Keeping Our Children, Youth and Vulnerable Adults Safe” and submit a background check.
