High School Youth Ministry

Vision Statement
Our vision is to develop well-formed Catholic youth, renewed in mind, heart and spirit. Our goal is to create well informed functioning teens who are on fire for Christ. The Purpose of the Saint Augustine Youth Ministry is to create environments that enhance opportunities for our youth to find a safe place to be themselves, express faith and emotions, experience God, and embrace community.

We strive to support parents as the primary catechist and we value the active support and involvement of the community as we aim to implement this vision.

PRAYER FOR YOUTH
We offer to you, Loving God, the gifts and needs of youth.

Bless them with your guiding grace as they face the challenges and opportunities in their lives.

Touch their hearts with the gentleness of your love, that they

may know they are valued and valuable beings.

Send your spirit of hope to their lives, that they may believe in themselves and know they are needed in this world.

Grace them with the gift of joy that they may celebrate life through laughter and tears alike.

Guide us, as we continue to grow in appreciation of the many

gifts of young people, in the ministry opportunities we offer to them, in the journey of faith we walk with them, in our shared mission as a community called to discipleship in the world.

Amen.
