A Comprehensive Youth Ministry and Confirmation Process begins with a team of adults, young adults and youth formed ministry. The components utilized are:
Catechesis, Advocacy, Worship, Guidance and Counseling, Justice and Service, Community, and Enablement.

Ministry is done by a team of adults and young adults who possess a mature Catholic faith and who have committed themselves to helping teens discover the presence of God through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are called to initiate, teach, nurture, and support the gospel of Jesus according to the framework of the Catholic youth ministry, Renewing the Vision. We endeavor to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in the world today, to draw Youth to responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic Church, and to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of the young people in our faith community.

“Maybe you think you know Jesus, maybe you think you know everything that he’s capable of doing, I promise you, you don’t. He surprised me, a 31 year old man. He surprises me all the time. I hope you give us a chance, I hope you give Jesus a chance.” – AC- Anthony Cerna
