Welcome to St. Andrew Youth Ministry!

  “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”

St. Catherine of Siena

Our mission is to help teens realize how valuable they are and the power they posses. We are called to be the instruments of today through our actions, but how do we do that? We focus on community and building a personal relationship with Christ which is an ongoing process. So, whether your relationship status with Christ is BFFs, “I don’t like that guy,” or “Jesus who?” You are welcome and encouraged to come. We meet all levels from purely social (movie night, sports night, game night, BBQs, etc) to wanting to learn more on Theology of the Body and Bible studies. Don’t forget to bring a friend, us Catholics are nonexclusive and love meeting new people.

Margaret Kozak — Youth Minister

Happy Father’s Day!

A Father’s Day Prayer

God our Father, We give you thanks and praise for fathers young and old.

We pray for young fathers, newly embracing their vocation; May they find courage and perseverance to balance work, family and faith in joy and sacrifice.

We pray for our own Fathers around the world whose children are lost or suffering; May they know that the God of compassion walks with them in their sorrow.

We pray for men who are not fathers but still mentor and guide us with fatherly love and advice.

We remember fathers, grandfather, and great grandfathers who are no longer with us but who live forever in our memory and nourish us with their love.

Amen
