Youth Ministry Mission Statement

The mission of St Bernardine Youth Ministry is to assist in building a personal relationship with Jesus Christ in our high school youth through their active participation in prayer, liturgy, learning, service and evangelization within our families, our parish community and throughout our wider worlds. 



Welcome to St Bernardine Youth Ministry! 

If you are in high school, we are looking for you!!!

All Youth Ministry activities are open to all high schoolers. Feel free to bring along a high school age friend who is interested in participating in any of our activities.


“The mission of Youth Ministry is to assist our youth in building a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through their ACTIVE participation in liturgy, learning, evangelization and service within our families, our parish community and throughout our wider worlds.”

When we MEET:

Youth Ministry meets every Wednesday throughout the year from 7-8:30 in the parish center. These meetings consist of prayer, play, food and fellowship. We meet in a small group setting and our sessions will engage you. These meetings are facilitated by various members of our Youth Ministry team and are meant to be social, spiritual and educational. 


In addition to our weekly meetings, we identify and coordinate service projects /activities in support of our parish and communities. We encourage all youth and their parents to love and serve our neighbors on a regular basis.
