About Us

Nativity Youth Ministry logoWe celebrate being a community of young Catholics who are supported in the Catholic way. This is especially needed as we struggle with the stuff that “friends” and social media tell us we should be or believe in.  Insert Creed here…I believe in one God…Let’s bring our troubles, doubts, curiosity and joy to LifeTEEN.

Our High School Youth Ministry program offers teenagers catechetical, faith, relational formation in accordance with the USCCB’s Renewing the Vision.

GREAT NEWS!  YM continues to gather.

Other Cool Stuff We Do During NON-COVID Time

Summer of Service

We are all called to be the hands of feet of Christ.  One way to live out that calling is to intentionally participate in Nativity’s Youth Ministry our Summer Mission of Service.

Volunteer at Vacation Bible Camp, Camp EDGE or go on High School Mission –  provides parish youth teens and adult leaders service opportunities to restore homes and, feed the hungry, lift the spirits of children, bring joy to the elderly and disabled, and offer assistance while partnering with social agencies.

We look forward to returning to VBC or Mission when it is safe for us and for us to serve God’s people. Until then, please pray for those who wanted our help and for those who look forward to serving again.
