Welcome to St. Andrew Youth Ministry!
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.

Welcome to the Easter Season!
“We are the Easter people and Alleluia is our song”
–St. Pope John Paul II
7 Ways To Keep Celebrating Easter
1. Pilgrimages, Processions, and Pretty Statues!
“Pretty” is an understatement in most circumstances. The Baroque statues carried around Spain’s enormous procession are positively stunning! So are the colors and art found in processions in Guatemala, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
Reenacting the Passion of Christ is a very popular practice around the world for Christians, and you can incorporate His Passion, death, and especially Resurrection in your traditions. Perhaps a special annual pilgrimage to celebrate with fellow Christians at a Holy Site, such as St. Peter’s Square? Or you could organize a procession, relic display, or important talk series at your home parish for those who can’t go on pilgrimage.
Traditionally, statues in the church are covered during Lent with purple cloths, which you may have also done at your house. Now that Easter is here, shout “Alleluiah!” and let your statues shine. Place flowers around them, especially the crucifixes. Maybe you could make a tradition of adding an icon, contemplative statue, or other beautiful Christian work of art to your home every Easter. These could even be brought back from your pilgrimages to holy sites.
2. Spring Cleaning?
Yes, cleaning! It’s a time of newness. While Germans clean their homes and Greeks smash breakable pots and pans out their windows to symbolize spring, you might consider joining the fun. Maybe you don’t want to smash your kitchenware, but you could always get that dust out of your house and open the windows for fresh air while you spring clean.
Clean with a smile on your face and sing joyful Easter songs, remembering the Lord’s Resurrection. While you’re at it, what can you clean out of your house to donate to others? How can you simplify your life by simplifying your home, enabling you to focus more directly on Christ?
