The overall mission of the youth ministry program at St. Thomas the Apostle Parish is to combine elements contained in A Vision of Youth Ministry and Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry. Both of these frameworks for youth ministry incorporate an on-going faith development, catechesis, community life, community service and social justice education, leadership development, evangelization, pastoral care and prayer and worship among our youth.
St. Thomas parish community urges and welcomes any high school youth to participate in our planned youth group activities and get involved with other ministries of the parish. We require that you fill out a registration form “tell us about yourself” that can be obtained from the Youth Group Leader. We also require you to come to activities with an open heart and mind to listen, dialogue and respond.
