Youth

Youth Ministry


Is a Christian ministry intended to instruct and disciple youths in what it means to be a Christian, how to mature as a Christian, and how to encourage others to claim Jesus in their lifes.


This is accomplished through teaching, relationship building and/or mentoring. The ministries themselves are almost always built on relationships between the youth minister and the student and their shared perception of their relationship to God.


Pope Francis said at World Youth Day in his final Mass homily:


“Go and make disciples of all nations”. With these words,Jesus is speaking to each one of us, saying: “It was wonderful to take part in World Youth Day, to live the faith together with young people from the four corners of the earth, but now you must go, now you must pass on this experience to others.” Jesus is calling you to be a disciple with a mission! Today, in the light of the word of God that we have heard, what is the Lord saying to us? Three simple ideas: Go, do not be afraid, and serve.


This continent has received the proclamation of the Gospel which has marked its history and borne much fruit. Now this proclamation is entrusted also to you that it may resound with fresh power. The Church needs you, your enthusiasm, your creativity and the joy that is so characteristic of you.


Jesus Christ is counting on you! The Church is counting on you! The Pope is counting on you! May Mary, Mother of Jesus and our Mother, always accompany you with her tenderness: “Go and make disciples of all nations”.
