Small Group Leaders - We are in need welcoming, fun-loving parishioners to help lead discussion for a small group of middle school or high school students during our weekly Young Church event on Sunday nights from 6pm-8pm.

Confirmation Leaders - Want to teach students how to follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit? We need catechists passionate about preparing students for Confirmation and the mission of the Church. Confirmation students gather for 9 sessions on Sunday nights from 6pm-8pm.

Discipleship Group Leaders - We need disciple-makers committed to Sainthood to help students embrace life in Christ unreservedly. Discipleship Groups meet monthly off-site to build community, grow in faith, and to kick things up a notch.

Speaker - Do you feel called to teach or evangelize through a gift of communication? We have opportunities for those who feel called to share their witness or use their gifts to evangelize in different contexts and to different groups (Young Church, Confirmation, Retreats…etc.).

Digital Content Team – We are looking for people with skills in videography, video editing, podcasting, graphic design, etc who are passionate about using these mediums to reach our students and bring God to our city.

Welcome Team – We are in need of parishioners with a heart for welcoming new students and reaching out in creative ways to those who feel far from our Young Church community. We have plans to incorporate an over-the-top greeter team at our Young Church nights, an annual birthday card to every teen in our parish, and regular phone calls to students and families asking for prayer requests.
