welcome youth menti

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.

Advent 2021 Prayers

Through prayer, we develop and grow our relationship with God.
Especially within the Advent season,
Christian families can use Advent prayers to celebrate and reflect on Jesus’ arrival.
Here are some ideas for Advent 2021 Prayers
that you and your family can use to grow your relationship with God.

Advent Prayer of Thankfulness

“Dear Lord,

Thank you for sending your Son to this world so that we could believe in Him. Thank you for providing hope in a hopeless world and providing a path to relationship with You. Help us to love others who do not know you, so that we can share the good news of Jesus’ arrival this Christmas season.

Amen.”

 Advent Prayer of Hope

“Dear God,

Help us to be ready for when Jesus returns. Thank you for saving us from our sin. We confess that we do not always have hope. Prepare our hearts to be filled with joy and hope for when Jesus returns!

Amen.”

Advent Prayer for the Holidays

“Dear Lord,

Help our holiday season to be focused on You and Your love. Please guide our interactions with family and friends to be filled with joy and service. Help us focus on You and the gift of your Son, Jesus, during the holidays.

Amen.”

Enjoy this beautiful time of Advent as you and your family prepare,

spiritually and physically for the coming of our lord and savior, Jesus Christ.
